my pal axel (lives in china like me) asked me a couple of months ago wether i would be able to build something similar like the ride on the pic but with a boxer as basis ...



OK! why not! will not be a 1:1 copy coz you cant make a v-twin out of a boxer with plunger suspension and propshaft ...



frame rewelded and sandblasted




1st layer of primer and some bondo for smoothening




frame after grinding and final primer




painted

first testride - unfortuately without seat ...

without seat it ain't possible to assy the tank - so i used a plastic-bottle as tank replacement - it worked ...

the guy for th leatherworks still keeps me waiting - although he promised me the seat for today

exhaust also assembled - was pretty tricky to get the left pipe to the right side - i'm satisfied with the look - not only the look but also the sound is awesome!



the guy who did the chroming messed up the pipes when polishing them - the dumbass made some dents but didn't realize (at least thats what he told me ...) - ain't ok for a customer so i have to do them new ...

ready to go ...
saturday the bike will be picked up and i can continue working on my Project No. 4 "El Diablo" bike



don't mind the dead kitten ...

tried to steal the bike ;D











my sunday-morning-church shirt - only for you ... :D :D :D
changed the exhaust - took the one i originally fabricated for my ride ("El Diablo")

the cover from checkered aluminium is a protection of the hardy-disc - the new owner had some bad experience already with a disc falling apart and hitting his helmet - don't like it either

the whole build took about 4 weeks + additional 4 weeks to get parts
