The pendulum gantry suspension system - truly "one of a kind"
That is genius design at its best!
Geez Troy why did you have to go and post that photo. You know Pezz can't help himself. Bet his next scrapper will have a weird front end (although to be honest it will then match the rest of any bike he builds Sorry Pezz, couldn't help myself).
So, you could hear the gears grinding in his head, as he was reading that post too... eh?
What weird frontend @3legs ???
It seems I maybe a bit . . . . . misunderstood here
I think motorcycles are all getting the same, same, same. . . .
Can you imagine the awe of rocking up at Finke on a bike like that . . . . or cutting the Simpson on it?
I do admit I lay awake at night and think of a particluar motorcycle, then what I can do to make it . . . unique
Like a VFR750 Motor into an XLV750 Frame, or a self made 350cc single in an R26 frame. MV Augusta Rally Raid Replika
The next motorcycle that gets offered / donated to me, I shall build something 'Very Different' it would just needs a compliance plate
Thanks for reminding me to get into the shed more often. . . . .
My you never change Pezz
Err I got a mate ...
@DRjoe this bloke might be a long lost relo
I do have the remnants of a Funduro in the que
Drawn up new subframe mounts to fit an old LC4 subframe seat and airbox I have here
WR426 front end ready to go on, stick with the steel swingarm of fit an LC4 one with a nice WP shock I have here which was a spare for one of the 640 Rally
Still contemplating if I will build a new manifold and fit a single 42mm Carb or twin 36mm Mikuni’s
How is the engine rebuild going Will??
That wasn’t your BIG motor that went bang I hope??
It sure was , boy was that a sweet motor until the boom
It sits in bucket of diesel for now
Chucked in the 125 dual range , little bit slower
Going to rebuild the big one , it was fun sitting on 80 on a postie with a loaded sidecar .
Some bloke I ran into in st George reckons it was doing a hundred when he passed me , one of our speedos was out
Any idea of what went wrong?
Looks like things leaned out
The only definate things you can see that went wrong is bits of the piston ended up stuck to the bore and gudgeon pulled out of the piston and welded itself to the rod . There was a couple of experimental things in that motor , got round 15000km before the bang . Next rebuild should have it well sorted or I will up it to 170cc and start again .
All that effort but couldnt make a longer side stand
Why do that when a block of wood and a length of string will suffice?
S'pose its either hassel at build or hassel during use
To be honest, it came off the bike lift the day before and there were other things to be jury rigged, i mean remedied, before the sidestand. I also found out my left leg couldn't bend enough to reach the kick starter. Who would have thought a RV125 would end up with a seat height the same as a DRZ400
It is important not to take these thing too seriously
That must have looked real "factory skunkworks" style, when riding along with the sidestand in the retracted position...
The poor old Funduro . . . . . It's an inetesting bike. . . . . .
Bit like a mates ugly sister, nice heart but no one wants to date her. . . . . .
Well that is what the Funduro is. Hit with the ugly stick and given an even sillier name. . . . .
I picked up the remnants of Michaels Funduro (need to come up with a better name for it)
As stated above I will be grafting a LC4 subframe onto the main frame after some suitable surgery
Looks nice in its little nest of autumn leaves.....you're such an artist @Pezz_gs
"where's the" Funduro?
The Fu-"heart of a Victoria secrets model - in a librarians body"-duro.
Pezz... just put a tapemeasure and a gas axe in the blokes hand... and bedlam will certainly ensue...
