oilhead with an airhead heart

I built the bike myself importing the frame and the back wheel from Witec.
Marzocchi 50 mm conventional fork, runs with 2 mikunis 38mm, eliminated various and heavy electrical wiring (what a pain in the ass job!!!). The custom front fairinig is the same I have on my other airheads (mold done on a 640 ktm adventure). The alum Tank is from the r 1100 r (not sure on the right model -i dont give a crap about street bikes so they are all the same to me) adapted with petcocks---right no fuel injection bullshit.? ()
Bike is light and fun to drive but......and here the fun part, I prefer this oldie that my friend Chris helped me building

That's pretty good. I like the headers tucked to one side. Looks odd, though, seeing an airhead motor with no frame tubes in front. Very clean look to it.

they're in there, stealthily in black and attached to those silver thangs.

The Witec is that oilhead bike, and I'm curious to know how Witec did their steering neck. Its a challenge taking the telelever to a conventional fork. Completely new framework, of course.


Electrical wiring = heavy? could be i guess

I'm going to start a thread about it pretty soon, but I want to get it in my hands first.
There is some final footpeg and control lever placement going on, but it runs, and while it still needs a lot of things, it will be eminently rideable, and a lifelong work in progress:



I got pics burning a hole in my internets

Ooooh la la......!

Extended swingarm? /7?

Dual shocks mounted a-la monoshock: those tabs strong enough? Hidden agenda for that question!!

Jacked up motor (raised up, that is? ) no, maybe not, but that is a wicked shaft angle somehow?

/6 tank, small?

R60 engine? (slide Bings)

R65 triple tree? or maybe bottom triple used on top as well?

Forks: am clueless there... gotta learn my forks....


Looks tough and ready.....

details to follow in depth, but basics:

its R60/5 all the way through. motor, frame, trans. looks to be SWB swingarm. 34/11 diff, think.

swingarm not extended at this point. would make the wheelbase uncomfortably long for a woods bike. No mods other than new shock mounts.

Motor is not jacked up, but a little bit of material was moved on the frame brace to let the arm pivot to the full extent of acceptable driveshaft angle. YOu are seeing the angle at what should be max lower extension. (no weight on the bike)

/6 tank, for now. Need to figure out paint

dual shock, and original subframe mounts are pretty strong for shock mount, and outer tabs just help reinforce those.

Front forks are Honda CRF250 41mm... no other mods other than a small spacer on the lower side.
we are aiming for 300lbs, but will be delighted with 325 and still happy at 350. Am taking bets
I am freaking out, I want to ride this thing so bad.

It will be a dog, I know, but I dont care! I'm not fast, anyway. It will just be so much fun to pound around on.

looks great, now start your thread up.
i think bob is seeing the exhaust which appears to be run lower than the frame on the right side. i thought it was the frame at first as well.
