Nice late Autumn day.
Back in the game with a lot of work ahead
Nearly same boat. 1993 r100gspd last on the road in 2008. Transmission out and needing to be rebuilt and all that goes with it.
Best of luck!
End of season
Nice ride. What front brake setup is that. and what are you using for auxilliary lighting?
Bike was bought as you see it, so I dont know. But the brake are good.
That's a 320mm rotor + adapter kit from http://www.he-motorradtechnik.de/
Stock headers, customY pipe going into a Ducati muffler. At full compression, still have over an inch clearance. Changed the shock mounts to allow for the custom built shock to work like it should.
But it does obviously limit what the suspension travel could've been.
It wasn't built for boulder bouncing...sand, gravel, washboard, and dirt roads. At full compression, there was still space...not much but no contact. One of the best builds..have a similar build almost finished when I get the time to finish it. Fortunately the owner isn't in a big hurry.
How much suspension travel does it have in the rear?
I built that bike over 10 years ago,,,and finish a restoration/fabrication about every 3 months. Means I really don't remember...just the fact that during testing, it worked just fine.
Pulled out all the older toys from the shed this weekend for cleaning. The FA50 on the end is my weekend runner. WOT all the time!
Picked this up a couple of days ago. 1 owner & 33400 miles from new.
Very nice - I always liked the bumblebee colour scheme. Quite low mileage too !
Riding my '92 R100GS somewhere in Mexico. I know the valve cover is on the wrong side. I had damaged the right side cover before the trip. The spare I had was for the left side.
That valve cover is creating lift at speed unweighting the front wheel! Very Dangerous!
Out and about with a 05GS, he needs to take the cases off next time, hard to get around the gates. Nice bike but I wouldn't trade, maybe have both.
