My latest original creation, again 100% pieces no more recent than 1994, this motorcycle has a much narrower frame than all my other original bikes, more along the lines of the old official models 8422 and 8838.
About this creation


View of compact V-twin engine layout, using similar principle to that on my larger four cylinder in-line engined bike to make it fit easily within a narrow frame, and front suspension based on that of Technic Trike 8857.
Rider footpegs are joined to the vertical supporting beam in front of the rear wheel.
Note lack of radiator made of steering racks - time I made at least one bike without one !



Tried to make a studless fuel tank for this model, using smooth surfaced plates and solid blocks inserted into holes of beams.
Picture shows the front spring mounting, which was one of the most tricky features of this bike to perfect and in turn made mounting the headlight a bit of a puzzle as well, which ended up being suspended from the upper yoke using steering elements from an old rack and pinion assembly.
Front sprocket again mounted fore of the rear suspension pivot.



View from rear, exhaust is made of tyres as per my "chopper" motorcycle.

WOW! Love it! ;)The light and front fork ended very well! ;) Nice frame, engine and the fuel tank resulted very very well!! ;) Only think I donīt like so much is the back seat, seems too big.. :S But loved it anyway! Nice to see a new bike from you! :D Love your vintage (stud) bikes! ;)

Technically intriguing - I like the solution used for the front suspension. Not sure about the yellow, though.
