Need to do my sums on it after trawling www.ebay.de. That's why I have not immediately started to sell off bits. At present, thinking about getting a R100GSPD set up either on a new frame or Gus. Then one of the bike's will continue Gus's evolution.

I will need to check the front wheel. Not visibly bent, but would need to set up a dial guage to be sure.

Agree that a K'bike disc would be nice, & I think relatively easy to set up.

The monolever, while seemingly more robust, hardens up the rear suspension climbing hills under power, so has its own issues. Part of the issue with both is the unsprung weight. Don't think you can entirely work aound the issues with either set up.

K75 unit will give you 32:10. One of these might be useful - replacement splines for K driveshaft:



There must be a way to weld it to the mono drive shaft.
Yes, I've thought about this a bit before as I had bits of a K final drive to get the backing plate for my final drive. The bolt pattern is different on the mounting to the swingarm so you would have to use the rear of a K bike swingarm and as you say, mate the two driveshafts together. Seems the k bike has a dry swingarm so the splines wear if not kept lubbed.
I guess anything is possible. Just depends if you want to be first

Is the k bike idea just to get the rear disc or is there some other advantage?

Then there's how ritmo sereno do it - with the 4-bolt mono rear ends. Hard to tell what kind of offset is needed. Need to id the K bike rims they use. I haven't seen this with a cross-spoke wheel, so not sure about calliper clearance either. Can't imagine it'd be be vastly different to a paralever setup though.

Steve, I've got a para GS frame with live rego and some HPM triples that I could be persuaded to part with.

Very interested in the Para frame. Maybe PM me with what you would want for that?

Also interested in the HPM triples, but probably can't afford them at this time.

New frame sounds like a good plan, I have got quite a bit of stuff of EbayDe, they are good on post. Had a set of Guzzi forks landed for under 3 hundy, pair of heads was about 50 E to post.
Got a wheel out of the US using local post and YouPost.
Kane might be worth a call as I was talking to one of his customers ( his biggest fan) and says he has got lots of parts and reasonable prices....just up the road from you.

So Steve, what would ya like to build. Do you have a bike in mind that you would like to replicate, assuming budget wasnt the limiting factor. Within reason

When I first became aware of the GSPD, I was aiming to get spares for Gus, & to flog the rest. I've since changed focus (several times now ).

It'll be a budget build with a twist, partially because Mandy's tolerance for a bigger spend is low to non-existent. Igor has made me a very reasonable offer of a frame, HPM triples, & KTM forks & adaptors to fit the cross lace front back to that. So I'm aiming for a GSPD with better suspension. More focussed on road & some gravel, which will then allow me to refine Gus's focus.

Actually I'm almost modelling things on your bike, Phil. I want this bike (Rufas) to be stockish looking, with more stealth mods.

Gus, by comparison, is more in your face, & has had a reasonable budget poured in. If I had to sell, then I would probably get more if I broke him (unlikely to happen however). I'm pretty happy with Gus at present. I have a list of things to do, but nothing pressing. It was obvious at the Polished Rockers that some people react to cosmetics, & a flash paint job would help. Dunno.

Some of the bikes I most admire are Adventure950's build, & Munsty's bike. Both are twin shocks, so maybe I should look at that more seriously. I also really like some of Crazy Ivans

I have some employment uncertainties at present, so things may take time.

I reckon without the tank gus would look much more stockish

Pulling down Rufas

Finished pulling down Rufas (dismantling the bike from the frame anyway).



I needed to chop the exhaust rose nut off. It was frozen in place, & I didn't want to wreck the exhaust threads. The bashplate has seen a lot of use.



Gearbox oil had water in it. All of the oils have been filthy. The Paralever also had a fair amount of oil in it.


Out!


Stored!
