Note: The PVC tubing is only there as a mock up of how a fabricated lever would look, I in no way would ever consider using a plastic lever......I'm crazy yes but suicidal no....

Playing around with a jockey shift

Tis the season to be jolly..... so after eating enough for a small African village I decided to get into the garage and play with a few ideas before i get to getting the engine out ready for final welding. I've always liked the look of a jockey shift with a hand clutch, so after finding a bit of 15m...

looking sweet

What a great looking stance, I love the rear frame set up, it has a great line. are you going to use a solo seat or are you going to use something like a gunfighter style? Seeing this has got me inspired to get into the shed and do a little work myself...keep it up mate by the looks of it you will s...

Forks

no length but may make it easier to google if you know what models fit. I'll keep looking for length

Fork diameter all makes

If this helps anyone I have found a listing of all fork widths for all models from 31mm to 45mm.
This may help if you're looking at changing for tubes

It's a long document (20 pages) so if anyone wants them let me know what sizes you want and I'll email the pages to you

That's awesome

Isn't it the greatest thing ever...I agree, sharing little moments like this with your kids/grand kids makes all that work very worth while

A few more picks after a couple more brackets removed

Today after doing the household chores I decided to cut a few brackets off the bike to see how the tank fitted. All I had to do was chop off the coil brackets (coils being relocated to the horn brackets at front of bike) once I had done this the sporty tank seemed to fit fairly well, just have to lo...

It's the simple things that make it great being a dad

Yesterday took the Laverda up to Raukkan for the re-opening of the community's church, great day but had to travel on unsealed dusty roads hence the bike looked like no-one owned her. Sun was out today, perfect time to give her a well earned spruce up. This job was made even better by the fact that ...

This is lookin awesome

G'day mate,

This is a really refreshing take on moding a modern (aluminum space frame) ride. I've seen plenty of "street fighter" mods but yours takes it to a new level. A great mix custom looks with turn key reliability.

Look forward to seeing the progress

The minister of Finance says no to major mods

Well as I'm sure a lot of you have experienced, the Minister of War and Finance has decided my grandiose plans for frame mods have been placed on a permanent hold. This is where I'm at now, All I need to do (read allowed to do) is modify the seat rails and the top of the shock points. The date for c...

Thanks for the advice

Thank God for this website! After a few wild ideas that were thankfully identified as being as ridiculous I have done some more research on what i should do with the old GS. Remember a picture is worth a thousand words... http://i350.photobucket.com/albums/q430/petergs850/14082008004-1.jpg What do y...
