Hm, I have a set of Riky Cross Mr. Hessler improved in my shed.
If you want me to do some pictures or measurements, leave me a note.

Now I have some RDMOTO from Czech republic, these are 25mm tubes instead of 22 or so and differ in mounting.

Cheers,
Lars

Dr big resto

Hi gentlemen bought a dr 750 while ago and now starting on a resto .Photos we will see .Didnt seem to bad except for some issues So carbs siezed up, easier to buy some as pretty generic.Do have to buy 4 tho so if anyone needs some let me know .Wiring is toast ,missing fuse box,probably why wiring melted and starter regulator .Assuming these are generic as well ,rather than pay cmsl prices, tho a good website.Will get wiring loom from there.Do we think easier to replace most electrical stuff eg.rectifier, coils or do they survive ?Also frame has rust on bottom rail; running up to foot peg mount got the tig out so should be fixable. Tins all good, beak,dash lights, there .Thanks guys

Wondered if anybody had seen this. I've emailed them for details and the price is around 18K Euros. a bit out of my league. So.... one of you lovely chaps needs to buy it :o)

Thanks for that link, Jimbob.

I at least got a lot of great photos from the ad, which is all I'll ever get.

Those forks look suspiciously like a Honda part....at least the front wheel does - odd.

It would appear that there is lots of money sitting in that warehouse, the DRZ is a mere pittance.

Exactly same. Emailed for price.... Sulked for a while.... Right click, save image!

I noticed the way the spindle clamps and did wonder what the forks were. Interesting

Have you seen how small dia the front pipe is?! Presumably it's a different cam and its to increase scavenge?

Hi there,
I've already seen that ad some time ago. Very nice bike, but due to lack of money I have to stand back for the luckier ones. On the other hand, I don't have to have everything ... but, nice it would be ...
Stefan has been involved in it's restoration, at least by giving advice. Don't know, if he helped with parts and work, too.
Just noticed that I first saw the ad in mid-septembre. There is (and has been) a lot more Paris-Dakar hard-ware in this place!!!
Kind regards, Bambi
PS: don't forget about the Big-calender 2013, 27. of novembre comes soon!

Awesome :O

Wait till Stefan Hessler sees that


Might be a cent or two too expensive, though.
