My R80 Custom Adventure Bike

I will be starting my R80 custom adventure bike soon. I will be posting pictures of my progress and ideas that I have. I hoping to get some tips and feedback along the way. Here is a picture of my frame. It is a monolever frame. It was made in August of 1986 . It has a title. Its a girl. Hopefully it is straight!?! $210 Shipped.

I have rented a 10,000 square foot warehouse. It might be a bit overkill for this project but here is where I will be building it.

I like it! You can even do test rides in the place when you get your bike running.

10,000 sq ft per bmw seems just about correct. . .

This one should be real fun too watch. . .

MonoLever questions????

Who can fill us in on our options here.
Snoop has decided he wants to run a MonoLever rear suspension.
He has a 1986 MonoShock frame and a 1979 transmission.

Could he bolt up an R bike MonoLever up to 1995, will it interface properly with his trans?

Could he use a K bike MonoLever? They sure look simmilar.....

I found a 1979 bmw r80/7 in brooklyn for $840 on craigslist. The owner was kind enough to deliver it to philly too. It has an alright engine that might have low compression. Odometer read 36k. The seat is cherry, brand new metzlers, great front end, perfect exhaust and whole crap load of other stuff. I am parting away most of it because the look wont go with the adventure thing.

I had a few friends up to show everybody the project. Every possible fluid in all of the bikes were changed during this time.
