I was able to get my Peel on my R51/3.
Nice. Front view? Are there openings to allow airflow to the engine?
Here is a picture of the front
Fantastic bike. I recently went over the deep end and I am currently rebuilding two plungers. One is a 1954 R51/3 the other will be a race replica of a 1939 R51RS. Your bike is inspirational.
Wowza, that's pretty sexy, in a "Superchief" kind of way.
I recently sold my R69S. For some reason I just decided a few months ago that if I ever go back any further than '81 I am going all the way back to a plunger frame. My dream vintage is a R51 with a breathed on R69S engine in it, a R68 repo front fender, and a /5 front brake laced into my alloy wheel.
GREAT bike! Those plunger frames are a BLAST to ride! Smaller and I think lighter than a /2!
I forgot to mention that I like those mufflers! Very racey!
it's beautiful. Very nice.
I have a R69S engine that is in parts in the garage
The crank has been rebuilt, the flywheel is going to be lightened
I have to decide if I want to go with R68 pistons and deck the head to boost the CR, or R69S pistons
Just for fun I am thinking of dual plugging the heads
Will do some larger intake and exhaust valves.
The Dellorto's and Hoske mufflers already give the 500cc a good pep.
thanks for the new screen saver. god that bike gives me wood.
awesome..... enough said.
What #Dellorto's are those?
Do your cylinders stay cool enough?
Can you post a different picture of that bike, each day, for the next year? Please?
the Dellortos are SS1 30mm SSFF (flanged for BMW like Bing)
I have not run it enough to get and idea of the temp that it will run, but I do have a VDO temp gauge, so I will be able to keep and eye on it
Well, as we say in New Hampshuh... It's wicked cool!...
Post lot's of pics, that's a fun lookin' bike!
That is really beautiful- any chance it'll make an appearance at Backfire Moto night some time this year?
I'm not a fan of the early beemers but I do like that. Not sure about the comfort levels of the seat though
did you get the bike like that, or are some of those mods your doing?
very nice looking bike. with that tank you need the pillion. how's the package clearence? i would to take the emblems off fairing, otherwise, is it for sale?
Nice detail work. Thanks for doing this combination, one that I wondered about.
How does it go?
The bike did not come like this. the tank and the headlight were there.
I found the Hoske pipes, the dellorto's and the Peel.
The seat with pillion I bought repop, they help with the big tank being able to scoot back, rear-sets are the next thing to work up.
It goes very well. Took some time to jet the dellortos, had to have cables made for the throttle, and when I had the heads off the first time, found that the bore was 72cm standard is 68'ish so I somethings call it R55/3
The next thing on the wish list are a set of Hoske wheels
