Bike by any other name

Is still a bike! I say ride what will get you there and back.

While we're talking about the Summit on the Summit.
I think a reasonable request of lets say $15.00 minimum rally donation would be a great idea for our host of the the first in I hope many North American Africa twin riders summit. You can always give more but I think we need to start somewhere.

I know there are guys out there with this bike. I had a dream like the old coke commercials where the is one singer on top of a mountain than two and so on and so on.
Except it was one Africa twin then two and so on and so.

He sells the the rally front part for 250 euros and for 640euros the complete kit with lights and instruments holders..

AQ is around 1000 euros only for the rally front...

Hi,

You can also use the front fairing of an RD04 and it's shield. But you need also the frame which carries the instruments.

Here is friends new Africa twin '88. It has 100.000 + K on the clock and still rols like it should. Six previous owners, 6 crashes, dozens of falls, malluse all the way but the old lady is still holding it together.

It was 3.000 $ in Croatia.

Here are the photos right after the purchase. we took it for a short 20 Km ride acros the town, trhrough some parks and grassy bits, and it is very fun bike to ride. You can tell its age only by a unprecise gearbox, and that is all that I could think of...

Laugh Need a front brake lever for a 92 RD04

Hey guys great thread I just read the entire thread start to finish last night and picked up a great 92 RD04 here in Dallas Texas. I got it with a broken front brake lever does anyone know what the cross reference part number is so I can goto Honda here in Dallas and get it. here is the europen part number ( 53185MN9305 ).

I am really looking forward to going on my first ride. Initial Ride report and PICS will be following tommorow.

Oh yeah by the way I am 90% sure that the Colorado gathering is a possibility! So Count me in and get me some more info when it becomes available.

Thanks

The later model has the 25-litre tank. My favourite bike so far, but I'm still fanatical about my TA600. What's the colour scheme? 1992 was a very interesting year for Honda's unusual colour designs!!!

It's a twin thing

Welcome to the brotherhood of of dated technology!
Now you will have to put up with why ride such a dated machine.
My standard answer is "I'm dated" Not sure what else fits for the lever you looking for, but given time I could check for you.

The summit on the summit grows one by one!
