I did not raise the rear of the bike that much but by building a new subframe I gave it the apperance of more travel. It does have about 7-8 In.of travel though.

Phil thanks for the great Pictures.

look like you run that shop like a hospital room, another great trade and it shows also on the qualty of your work

she is very pretty, very "BMW Original" looking but i'm sure nothing is stock in it, like the car guys call it a "sleeper'

Is that the R65 you sold about a year ago? I remember almost considering it.

I bought the bike from Scott in July or August and let it sit till I had time to do it over.
Scott thanks for the before picture, I forgot what it looked like.

It's alive!!

I rode it today. If Col. Klink were to have a dirt bike it would look like mine.
I was laughing me head off riding it around on some back roads here.
It feels like a modern dirtbike until you look down and see those big jugs sticking out,Or gas it and feel the driveshaft torque? The tires are very agressive for pavement so that made it feel funny too.
The bike ran really well and seemed more responsive with that un corked exhaust. It probably lost 20-30 lbs. too. I will have to work on spring preloads to but is very rewarding to drive it after all the work!!!

Front end

By the way, I do have the front end off this bike wich is probably a 90's Yamaha front end that I would give to any ADVRIDER that wanted it as well as many other parts from both the r 65 and the 02 426.
Let me know
