When looking at the pics I cannot see any frame strengthening as per HPN. Did you do any? No exept that the fuel tank does help to support the subframe
What length did you extend the swingarm by and what was the rear shock length? 5cm longer swing arm, shock length 410mm
What jet sizes were you running on the bing carbs and finally what was your fuel range? fuel range was about 375 km without the extra fuel bladder I had

That old beemer ST sure will convert many sceptics and boy it sure looks cool.

Ride on

Thanks Stashek for the kind words about the old machine.

It sure looks cool submerged being pushed by 2 or pulled by 3 to get it out of trouble
Don't know if that will convert many skeptics, but I still like the thing.

Its real nice to hear people enjoying the stone age technique doing ok amongst the newer bikes.
