All good here mate, as per our talk tonight.. PS - Good to catch up again after no skype sessions for so long

WOW - A couple of months off the scene and everyone is talking about my demise

Honestly, I havent checked these pages for quite some time now and, while talking with Woodie on the Skype machine tonight, was surprised to have him mention that he heard the WASPmobile was for sale. He mentioned that it came up in this thread so I thought it best I check in and post.

Its true, the bike is for sale but not in the form advertized.
I have sold off all of the accessories (except the Wheels and Ohlins rear) to one buyer, and I will be selling the standard bike + rear boxes to maximize value: http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/chidl...ere/1019714963

The silver 18" rear and 21" front wheel set (you cannot buy better than these Woodies Wheel Works specials) are to be sold seperately: http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/chidl...age/1019720094

The Ohlins rear shock will be sold seperately as well: http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/chidl...ly-/1019719250

As much as I will miss this bike and hate to see it go, I have more pressing things/projects that I would like to clear up space and funds for.

I may have leaked a little peak of what we (myself+Woodie+Graham) are up too.
For those that may have missed it:




I still have the rest of the frame work to finish in the 3D model before I can start fabricating but the guts of it is, these will be available in complete kit form with all the parts purchased from us. The engine will be Harley Sportster 883/1200 from donor/salvage.

We are keeping this under our hats at the moment but will keep our good friends here advized and updated as the build progresses.

THIS is why im clearing the decks...

Greg.

I'd be really interested in one of those with shaft drive and a 1200cc parallel 270 Deg twin ...



Good luck Greg. So those Harley accessories are expensive hey?...

Thumb Wow!!!

Dang! That looks like an ol' board tracker!!!

I *LIKE* it!!!

Will it be possible to ship 'em to the USA without it being too expensive? Just so happens I know where there's a lovely *donor* Sportster!!!

BTW, I'm in Austin, TX this weekend at the "Circuit of the Americas" race track where they're running Aussie V8 Supercar races Saturday & Sunday (along with Pirelli Touring Cup Challenge events and Porsche GT3 Cup). The Aussie V8's look to be *GREAT* series, and I hope they find a permanent home for a date on their calendar from now on!

Good Luck on the new venture, Greg!!!

I really like that concept when you sent me that pic. 6 months ago. Looking very good. If your selling off all S10 parts send me that prototype high fender bracket and dual front brake line kit. PLEASE! My Woodies 21" needs it.

well if we build em at the WWW we'll keep that part of the equation down...the prototype wheels are already waiting for the frame...if ya send me the donor motor we can get going sooner
holler,,
woody

PS,,,'methinks we are usurping the tenere thread ,,,there was another thread somewhere already about board track replicas...perhaps this story should continue there...thanks for the interest though:cla

Finished ?

So much money spent on this it seems a bargain.

this tenere inspired me to do the same with the new liquid cooled R1200GS

I believe he is no longer making parts for the Super Tenere. Unless you find a used one you are SOL.

If anyone has one of Greg's heated grip controller brackets they no longer require, I would be very interested in taking it off your hands in exchange for some international beer tokens *.

Question Engine guard for forward pegs

I purchased them with the bike and had them sitting in the shed so I decided to stick them on just to get some ideas of how they fit and mounting points etc..

As I may have mentioned before, the instruction sets that are supplied with all of these accessories are just cartoon drawings with no written words.
It makes me feel really good about the instruction sheets I send out with all of my products.

The first hurdle (took a bit of time to work it out) was the main bolt for the front/top tubular frame.
I finally worked out that in order to remove the main faring retaining bolt you simply turn the handle bars to left hand steering lock... There is no need to start completely dismantling the top triple and ignition block



Next was the captive nut underneath the main faring mount. The captive nut needs to be removed to make way for the front/top tubular frame support but the captive nut would not come out and the cartoon directions were not making sense. Until I made an executive decision and simply bent the bottom bracket to release the captive nut.



Next, install the front/top tubular frame support bar into the main faring bracket and away you go.



Remove the plastic factory crash/handle bars from both sides and install the new tubular (very sturdy) engine protection bars.


Install the front joiner bar and the front/top tubular frame and you are good to go.



Makes me wish that I had purchased the auxiliary lights to finish things up... I have another evil plan for the aux lighting though



Looks great and is extremely solid when mounted.
The big (obvious) problem is that it leaves the side faring plates (protruding edge below the Yamaha badge) insufficiently guarded in a fall over. we have probably all seen the pics of the one that went over in a slow speed in the South African review.

I dunno how long it will stay on there for but at least it gives a little protection.

Greg.
Greg, I found you thread on this Tenere build and was intrigued. I have to admit I haven't read the entire thread but I recently bought a 2013 S10 and would like an option for highway pegs in a forward position for relief on long highway rides. Is that the factory engine guards? Did you fab anything that will allow fwd pegs to rest/stretch legs on a hwy run?
Thanks,
David
