Non-BMW airheads!

I think Davepave is right on! There does need to be a sub-forum for these machines. If made available, this would keep the BMW based sub-forums unpolluted with the other riff-raff machines.

PaulRS, with the mating of the BMW powerplant to a Dnepr there definately is a point where too much power is just too much! Lol
Think of the Dnepr as more of a tractor than a motorcycle, kind of...

PaulRS I did know that the R90 did not have the Nikosil bores (too bad). I think the more information that comes to light here I am slowly talking myself into the late model R100 as my target donor...

Thank you for the responses so far!
As to the 'why don't I just bolt a sidecar to an airhead' crowd ... Thought about it, it would be less than the Dnepr could be. Remember the Dnepr was designed...

LL forks

I don't know if they will fit your application but, 'oldtimergarage.com' has LL forks for a Dnepr. They are less refined than some but, are of a robust nature! Too, the entry price is attractive,...
