Front wheel is a 21x1.8 Excel, not too sure what the hub is. When Ray went to the wheel builders he told them what he needed and they gave him what they had that would do the job. They use different brands depending on what the customer wants; he thinks it is a Rad (?) brand.

Rear wheel is standard R100GS tubeless rim w/- tube, as the Mitas E07 doesn`t come in tubeless for that size.

Fairing/dash wobble has been fixed, will try to remember to get piccy next week.

I thought I'd read that the E07 is available as tubeless. Is that only as a 140 section tyre?

Tubeless E07 is available for the big chookies, Oilhead GS, V Strom etc. People were using slightly smaller E07`s with a tube, which worked OK, so Mitas decided to make the correct size for them.

If I panned over to the left a bit we would see a turbocharged/fuel injected R90S, an R80 G/S PD w/- 1000cc power up kit in the foreground, plus a couple of Ray`s much earlier specials in the background. In another room sits Ray`s latest finished special, a 1070cc monoshock w/- K front end and spoke wheels.

I`ve given up trying to put pics up on this site, so Mike is taking them from a Facebook page. Maybe Mike wants to tell us what engine he is about to buy for a special he is building.

I think the engine block for mine is from one of those.
