Last Ride



Southeastern Oregon baja bound couple of hours before my tranny blew. I guess the circlip mod wasn't done. Returning to Bend this weekend to truck bike home.

A Well known Porsche racing fanatic took a /2 BMW and stuffed in a Twin Cam Carrera Motor from a Spyder. Friggin unreal! I have pics just not where I am at right now. I will try and post in a couple days
That I have got to see... Those twin cam engines are rare in and of themselves, the cost for that conversion must have been sky high.

May I suggest one thing? I know this bike will most likely never be ridden in the rain, but should that ever happen, the horns will have water rammed into the electrical points in the center and they'll corrode. The water won't leave and continue to corrode for a long time aftewards. It's best to leave them pointing down - they'll still sound just as loud ahead of you.

The rear sets are allegedly from one of Reg Pridmore's old race bike's. I do not know who made them and there are no markings on them. It took me 7 years to find a set for a drum brake bike.

The headlight bucket is stock just chromed; as are the ears that hold it on.

The frame is painted with a two part Bumper Paint, Looks like powder coat.
I met a great powder coater after I built this bike, and next time I will powder coat. But the Bumper paint has held up great. The bike is on its 4th summer since I put that together.

I would consider using an epoxy based paint as opposed to a powder coat in most situations. That's just me though. I'm sure powdercoat has alot of big fans too.

Why epoxy over powder coat? I want a tough finish but would rather not pull the stearing head races for the powder coating.

It goes on thick, it is chip resistant but it can still chip. And you can still have rust/corrosion issues, although you won't see them as easily since they'll be covered over.
