Started working on the skid plate
And the skid plate is done. Now i have to take the frame apart and send it to be poweder coated.
Well... I'll admit mine walks around with a chubby but that one looks to be fully erect.
You could cap it and put a new bung in somewhere else.
thats the best place for it no room anywhere else and the murge collector is right there
I think it needs a King Albert Ring. Google for a giggle.
Well, you could have angled it so it’s pantiewares made it a bit more discrete, lol
Really, I think the bump as it stands won’t survibly protect as you want. I think a “codpiece” shape lends itself to a stronger structure (continuing the gender analogies) that is, a fully formed hemisphere vs a cantilevered tube. I hate to say it but a redo may be warranted for an improved design.
Sorry man, I know that was a ton of work too! The good news is the greater plate can still be used, certainly your bike/decision.
Plus, you’ll be able to ride in public without a hint of embarrassment. Lolol
I'm impressed. The hard work the dedication and the craftsmanship behind this build is impressive. I would love to have a bike like you are building. Good job drag.
Thanks yorgo for the help
Looking forward to seeing your finished bike. Thanks for the updates.
While i have the engine out i checked the valve adjustment and its a good think i did. All but two valves were tight one was right on and one loose.
Just wondering how your bike build is going?
Waiting for the frame parts to be done by the poweder coating hoppefuly this week
Looking great! This is going to be one of those bikes that Honda should be producing. The rally version of the 250 was a nice addition to their line but a 500 would really fit a niche.
Excellent work with the lightning glue. Let's just say that you are a far better welder than I am.
Thanks goofaroo thats the reason why i desided to build this bike because i dont see yamaha or honda producing anything as lightweight for the next 2-5 years in the 400-700cc
Yep. I worked at a Honda dealer back in 1990 and we couldn't give away a Transalp. If they would take that same bike and tweak it a bit for today's market they could probably steal a big chunk of the KLR650 sales if they kept the cost down. We had a 89 model sitting in the showroom marked down to $1995 and nobody even looked at. A good used example sells for twice that today.
well well look what got all finished today time to get on with assembling
Always a good time collecting from the powder coaters, keep the pics flowing.......
A little progress so far had to replase the stearing head bearings and lube all the pivot bearings to the swing arm and bottom shock thingy. Anyone with a CRF check all the bearings for grease Honda sure as hell does not like to use any.
A little bit more progress today.
