R1150GS EML Enduro
 
Started with an 1150GS and most of a used EML kit I purchased in Holland last Fall. There was no body with the kit s I'm building one from scratch. It will have on-board air, winch with front and rear receivers and the ability to tow another motorcycle. This rig will be used as a chase vehicle for http://www.rawhyde-offroad.com/.

No more para-lever.

Last couple of days has been body mounts and lots of tube bending and notching.

What was included in the EML parts you bought? Sub-frame and struts? Sub-frame, struts and leading link?

When you say "no more paralever" did you maybe mean "no more telelever"? (For non-BMW aficionados out there, the paralever is the rear swingarm and the telever is the front suspension A-bracket but even BMW guys sometimes mis-speak and say them in reverse!)

Those Rawhyde guys are gonna love having 2 gallons of instant air! But Gawd that thing takes up a lot of space. I like your idea of mounting it in a box so that (I'm guessing) you can easily remove it and replace it with a cargo box and seat when you want to go out and bash around on your own.

The EML came with everything minus some hardware and the body. Correct- Telalever.. It was very late when I posted this:D.

Very nice
 
Very nice utilitarian chariot, I'm not a big fan of the box tube but given the amount of work your doing it's surely able to give you a straight and square start.I thought I hung out in the only welding shop with microwave magnets everywhere.I didn't see you there ! LOL

From the pictures, it looks like BMWEuro is correct! :clap
No more Paralever AND no more Telelever!
In the rear, no more Paralever, as it looks like a steel MONOLEVER with a fixed torque shaft. :eek1

This is one tough looking Hombre!:gun1

The pivot on the rear drive had to be cut off and the driveshaft is stock. I'll see if I can take some more detailed pictures.

BMWEuro: Looks cool.

What width wheels are they [4"; 4.5"; 5" ??]?

What size tires?

Same wheels/tires on all 3 corners?

Thanks,
Duncan

More welding.....

Mocking up the fender. I think it would look better if a section 2" out of it.

http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...03538790_n.jpg

Bigger step/side bumper. I'll cut the small one off.

http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...63446401_n.jpg

Locking rear box mount.

The rear box houses a compressor and tank and is portable.

That is a customers bike that is getting a set of my 15" alloy rims and a bunch of other stuff. He has had the rig for over 20 years and over 200,000 miles.
