Change the tires, even use a 19 on front, raise the front fender and to me, most important, change the handlebars. Ride it as you want to and anything else you need to do will make itself obvious.

heres my baby.

It's been agreed that this is a ex dakar frame as used by gaston. i've added a photo of what it looked like in 1985 and how it looks today. its a 1984 ex dakar frame that a guy built into an 84 penthouse rep using an original tank and a few other parts. The frame number is PDR101.
the big question now is do i return it to 1984 spek.

Which tuner made this frame? It doesn't look like an HPN prepared frame -- it seems to be missing the reinforcements found even on the early HPN frames.

If you look here http://www.possi.de/hpn/hpnmatz.html you can see pictures of frames #3 and #6. #6 was actually a spare for the 1984 Paris-Dakar.

In 1984 Schek was the tuner, HPN kicked in after that I think.
Sycomoto; are you any good in reading German? I have two recent magazin articles about him I'd scan them if interested.
And last, my own Schek is on page 43 and 44, built in 1989 after the 1984 specs but changed a bit over the years as well. Mine has no reinforcements at all, and seems to have held up a 20 year long hard life anyway
Plus there's another Schek on page 43.

HPN had kicked in 1980, but a bit of research shows that H. Schek ran a semi-official bike in 1984 and finished 21st. Then Sycomoto's serial number makes sense then, as it doesn't follow HPN's format. And, I think HPN #1 is owned by BMW or HPN now.

BTW, I'm using a Schek Marzocchi front end on my HPN. If you do scan the articles, I'd love a copy.

As for reinforcements: The Enduro park in Hechlingen used to wear out the stock frames in a few years. But, that was all off-road, every day.

I have been watching this thread with great interest. I am considering my own Frankenbeemer build up.

For any of you who own an HPN frame or have closely looked at them...Is the head angle changed in any way? On some of the build ups using stock frames the larger new front suspension adds a raked look to the bike.

Keep up the pics guys!

This thread rocks.

I know this pic was posted a couple of years ago, but is there any chance I could get some detail of the work that went into getting it together. Ive just purchased a 1984 R65 to do just such a job on.
Cheers
