    Did a quick internet search, looks like is 22 litres. I usually refill when in reserve and it roughly takes 17 litres to refill. Hence when that happens there are still 5 litres to go, good to know! Apologize for the wrong info.

    Finally got this bike on the work bench and parts are trickling in. Hopefully I’ll have the front end finished up in the next week or two, still waiting on parts and tools.

    Definitely sticking with stock tanks as I’m planning on doing some serious mileage on this bike, but I threw the toaster on for fun. Also going to order a r100/7 seat. Are any of the repro ones lighter than stock?

    Planning on copying this bag design. Went to a camp out and met a guy with this setup. Was perfect for my interest/intended use. After he unloaded he drove up to the store and loaded them full of ice and beer, I was sold. I also love the look, except I think a stainless cage.

    Got my tubeless outex kit in today. Installing it tonight, hopefully have it rolling again tomorrow.

    Definitely cheaper ways of going tubeless but this seem like a really well put together kit and it’s not really much more than the other diy methods. Here’s a video of someone else installing it if you’ve never seen it.

    For anyone that has a rear drum and wants a disc Cognito Moto is making a conversion now. I’m think about one for my /5. Love the looks of the drum up front wouldn’t mind a little more stopping power though.

    Not affiliated with them they’re just making great products and wanted to share.

    Not much to update waiting on parts... but for the few curious here’s a small update.
    Long night, tossed back out. Set up tire changer and made many modifications to it to make it functional... sealed spoked wheel with outex kit and mounted front tire. Stoked on how it’s coming together.

    I like them the other way. :augie

    A front end like that might be fun but good brakes seem to make people fall off.

    Ha maybe, but I’m planning a beast of a motor. Brakes, frame and suspension will all get lots of attention to keep up with it.

    They actually lined up easier the other way around... it looked very wrong though. Meyer built metal works the guy that makes them messaged me and very kindly pointed out I was an idiot lol.

    Looks very nice. I`m wondering, should there not be a reaction rod going to the caliper? :hmmmmm

    Just not pictured, I’ll be using the stock set up. If you you’re putting this on a bike that didn’t originally have a rear brake you’ll have to fab it up yourself. Honestly that will be really easy though.

    Looking for a solo seat for this build if anyone is selling one.

    Just picked up some wixoms for it from Boxer metal and hopefully have the rear wheel on this weekend.

    Also picked up my 5th airhead recently. Hopefully I can focus on one build but I know I can’t unfortunately... it’s a bit crispy
