You are correct. They are peashooters.

This is mine. It's it now in bits for its second more extensive rebuild.

Not sure what I'd need to get for it. If it moves you and you are interested lets talk.

Literally you undo the shocks, four subframe bolt, unplug the wiring harness and swap it out. Change your license plate too!!

Home made taillight bracket with LED taillight.

Hate to ship it since it is large and unwieldly.

Cut down front fender will come with it too....


Bump....still available. Tired of carefully storing it in the garage....

PM me for a stack of pictures.

No, Not the i am aware of. It will always appear backwards when you look at the top of the tyre.

I think it has to do with the fact that it is Down Under.

This discussion re front tyre tread has been rehearsed before (not sure if here though). Many tyre brands have the tread in this direction for front tyres as it is the front that does most of the stopping/braking ... rear the drive ... hence opposite tread patterns.

Bought them used for a smoking deal.

They are very hevily built and really not that much louder, but definitely have a bass rumble that is sweet.

I can finally play. Here is my Frankenbeemer I officially finished a couple of months ago. It'll never see a track day but it will look good going to Starbucks.

'77 Frame
'76 Engine block
'75 Cylinders (R100)
'73 Heads
'73 Front end
'72 Final Drive
'72 Wheels
'74 Gas tank
'82 Carbs
'04 GSXR Shock

Took about 18 months but now she runs and rides great. I still need to rig up a catch can for the oil breather and I've got an annoying leak from the oil pan that I haven't had time to sort out yet.

Coming from you that's a compliment. I patterned the mono shock from your build. But my welding skills are no were near yours. Mine looks like globbed glue next to your work. Thank God powder coating hides a lot of sins.

Haha, That is funny, I looked at your swing arm for a few minutes, thinking it sure looked familiar! Very tastefully done bike. You should be very proud!
