    Yeh thats the idea with this one.
    I was thinking about that too. Paralever / mono lever and twin shock rear ends are all different in that department I think, but I will look further into it.

    Might even set-up a new thread for it. Dunno.

    For the gearbox, I may also do a simple blanking plug that still uses the breather bolt for use on bikes like mine - there's really no point in me having a higher gearbox breather when I have K&N filters down there anyway.

    I really like looking over these type of builds. It really makes me want to forego the new bikes and spend my time working over one of these older pigs. There's just something about the character and soul that they convey...

    It's all fun but you do have to have a bike to ride while you're waiting for parts/money/motivation:D

    Real men don't need an electric leg, at least I didn't when I had the Nortie, do ya think old age & arthritis might have caught up.

    Standard forks , Tanks & bars from Omars in the US. seat home made.
    Master cylinder & clutch lever are built into the switch blocks any ideas what they should be replaced with.

    Ooops, Sorry I won't hijack this thread.

    All good dude. Thats a nice ride - big fan of trumpies.

    People often use the Grimeca masters - they have a good classic look and are pretty clean styling wise. If British Spares are still around you might find them there.

    nice work. I love some details like speedo housing, tail light. The scrambler look tha made the bike seems lighter (It's certainly)

    The scrambler is back together after being painted, but still some faults to workout before I leave for France (24 Hours du Mans) end of this week. My starter motor died last week, and I already replaced it. I also have to replace one of the front fork seals and I have a problem with my clutch... I'm going to look in to it today, maybe someone has a suggestion about what it can be... When the engine is cold the clutch opperates really smooth like it should, but after 30minutes of driving when the engine gets hot the clutch feels not right anymore. Opperation is more rough almost like it's sticking or something is grinding. Any ideas about what the problem could be (I already switched to the old cable, so it's not the cable).

    Thanks in advance,

    adios Kasper

    looksgood pusherrod. The headlite/ tank setup makes the bike look quite staunch - sort of hunched up like a brahma bull. Those tyres add to it too.

    Sorry I can't help with the clutch problem tho

    It is a common problem on the R 100's .
    The housing for the trust bearing that the lever pushes against, is a round plasic thing, that expands when hot and jams.
    You take the clutch lever off ( at the gearbox) and pull it out, then sand it down a bit.
    10 minute job...( als je een draaibank hebt...)

    Thanks for the advice, I also spoke to a BMW technician who told me the same thing. He told me to put it in a powerdrill and just sand it down, so I will try this....

    Thanks again,
