Dude I'm so there is not even funny,, are you going to set up a little "WEB-Cam" like the pornstars do....!?!?

please be sure you take fotos of the whole process and make a look write up about it,,is not like I need to tell you...

sound fun,, maybe you can borrow some ideas of my
"Crashable headlight mount" I made for golem many years ago.

The basic premise of this concept is that a motorcycle will crash sooner or later and trying to avoid it is basically Futile, so may as well enbrace it and prepare for the wrost

this is all made with a dreemel a drill and a hacksaw so don't spect much finish quality anywere

The basic players are a Conecting rod from a Ford V-8...Very Madmax or what..
and a Bicycle stem that can be change very easy depending on the type of headlight i'm running (somehow a modular design)


the idea is for the whole arrangement to rotate and defuse the force of the impact into rotational movement as oppose to break parts or at least bend them

here you can see how the connecting rod attache to the "Fake" steer tube I made, the hole on the big tube is soppose to house a 36M bicycle headset so I can mount a fender that will move with the forks, even if the bike does not have a lower triple clamp to mount the fender on..
I never mount it since I ed up making the small aluminum cross braze to increase the stiffness of the whole thing


I even cross up the hydrolic lines so they will not fail no matter what.


the headlight Pivots on the lower of the main two silver tubes, the upper tube operates the assimut adjuster via a EXentric wheel that can be adjusted by hand really easy with out any tools


I crash the Shit out of poor Golem at least 126 times in her short life of 22 month


Until this day when I overheat the engine do to the incredible amount of Mud house on the cilinder heads and the engine dye that very same day


since I keep leaning the poor thing on her side when I was helping other people get across the mud.


and after all that the headlight never bend or brokeand i only need a 6mm allen to fix it and sometimes not even tool since a left the bolts a little losee

here is one last proof, even after a nasty crash only some of the plastic broke off, since the whole light bend and defuse the impact the way it was soppose too..


Yes some people think I'm CrAzY but I love to proof them WrOnG

Hey Pezz!
I'm trying to build something along this lines as my next project, the only problem I see now it's the rear end - I have no way to make it + 100mm, not the shaft nor the swing arm.

is that something that you do?

Cheers

I could do it but I am building up a conventional style swingarm with a monoshock. I dont know when I could get it done.

PM me you email address and I will put you in touch with Paul.

He could build one up for you. I know where there is a Swingarm here in Oz he could modify for you.

He's a great bloke and could post it to you over there

With the exchange rate mightnt be too expensive. Makes the bike really.

No NO nO....

The headlight came from a Honda 1100XX Blackbird and i use to run two HID Lights made by CATZ (Plus two more AUXiliary lights) can you say "HeaTguN" that can melt the paint of the cars in front of you.

The rest of the windscreen is made of a inner shield of a F650 and the sides are cut from a stock R1100GS attache with my favorite bolts bicycle chainring bolts.

and I'm sure you are going to love this repair Ussing safety wire
