If the 1150 engine is like the 1200 GS motor, just close the throttle and it will come to a halt pretty quick

Kudos, thats cool

Hi Booj! Every thing is fine here, thanks for asking. And you? The guy came riding in on it. I could see it coming but the sound seemed wrong for the bike, and then I noticed the jugs, and then

Anyone with his machining skills, can do whatever he damn well wants.

And this guy has skill and talent.


I loved seeing this machine.


But yes, it ain't for everyone.




It should be appreciated for what it is, and it ain't a /2 anymore.

I would still like to see a /5 mated to a grocery cart.

My first conversion had stock brakes. Someone did me a huge favor by stealing it. I hope they got killed on the first hill they went down.

The overall proportions might feel better if he had rubber knee pads on the tank?

This is an example of a well thought-out engine swap:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=382476

Notice how the engine looks like it belongs in the bike? We know better but nobody else would be the wiser.

I'm sure there are a lot more /2 frames out there that will never find a correct motor than there are /2 motors looking for a frame.

When I was younger I worked at a Ford dealership. One of the mechanics put a V-8 in a Pinto. It looked like a factory job it was amazing. Did it belong there? No. Did it look like it belonged there? Yes. I think the engine in the /2 looks out of place proportionally. It's not that the guy did bad work, but I htink he went wrong where a lot of engineers go wrong. There is more to the design than making it work, it has to look right and be aesthetically pleasing. This is not. The lines of the engine are too vastly different from those of the /2. A /2 is rounded and swoopy. An oilhead is angular and blocky.

Mr Hotey, FWIW, I'm pretty sure that's a Chang Jiang with a BMW engine.
Yes, Jimbo does incredible work.

I also agree that /2 frames are plentiful. No problem there.

Yeah, I realize that. It still looks a helluva' lot more authentic than this 1150.

Drhach nailed it.

That Chiang Jiang is basically a flathead era BMW. The Airhead still looks right in the frame.

Clearly theres alot more 1150 motors w/out frames then? OK.....

I'm not cutting the guys work, it looks great. I'm just a huge fan of the /2, un-frankensteined.

Infact i know where you can get a VW 4cyl motor already mounted in a /2 frame. The rest is a basket case. Let your imagination run wild.

I wonder how the /2 final drive stands up to the 1200 power-------.
