Thanks guys for your feetback - at the moment i "creep" arround my house to get a feeling how she drive. Hope the day is not so far that i can ride with license plate "legal" on the road. The muffler sound is "brutal" check it today - one meter away on 3000 per min. it`s 105 DB. Hope at the licence control the man get no cardiac arrest.!

Hi Hofman - the frame is from 82 - so the German "sound control" get an update in 84! Normally, the "highwaypetrol" can do nothing if they stop me. So this "species" enjoy protection from her buildingyear. But sometimes .... if itīs this "special"
typ of policeman - shit can happen! We will see. My Ducati is also noisy ( 102 DB ) and i ride now 3 years arround here in the north countryside - without stress! The SR motor produce arround 42 HP - and the weight is ca. 150 Kilo! Andreas

Im not quite sure if this is one. I'm thinking Megaton ? But then again the end of the exhaust isnt in the same line Megaton is.

So you "exhaust oracle" boys - This is PAYTON PLACE - Kyoto. They produce - i think - 8 diffrent pipes in top class stainless - so is the price ! Itīs also possible to get it with "sidecut" like old racers ( Norton ...) use it 50 years before. But this will be one more problem to get a liscence plate. At the moment it is not so correct .... no more explain!!.
The exhaust produce basic 97 DB at 3500 rpm 107 DB!! ( half max. rpm)

Very very nice. On the film, I get a good idea off the proportions off the bike. Everything looks just perfect.
A very good job indeed.

It is a good advertisement for you as a caferacer builder!

Hi Hofman , about your praise i`m really pleased ( also the praise off all other members )- thanks for the flowers. So this here is a "critic" forum - and i feel, my direction is right ( in the section off hypershine bikes). So you all, wait for my next !!

"grand maleur" today. Take a short ride - after some minutes it feels like i have no gasoline, motor runs like someone stand on the break. After a stop at a traficcross - i see first a lot of black particles on the wheel than i see that the licenseplate with taillight is loose/ brocken and a screw make a deep mark arround the tire - this bullshit after 500km `cause i can smash the tire away!!
Andreas


But late in the evening my wife get caught from me - trying to take a ride on my "blue Diva" - so my anger move away an we take a ride together!!

Hey Andreas,

Shit happens
Expensive mistake. ( Just bought a new fronttire myself)
When I ride I constant look backwards if nothings falls off! And checking regurly, while driving, if my airfilters are all there (seems to be a problem by the cheap versions).
Yesterday my bike suddenly stopped and I couldnīt start it again.
Luckely there was only a fuse that wasnīt making good contact.
I guess after a while it will be more trustfull.
Anyway keep drivinī

Hi Kornfed, yes this is bullshit - but some years later i will tell this story as a "funny tale" - so, life comes frontal. Only a tire - happy that have no accident with a blocked rearwheel. And the ride with my wife ends with happynes!!

Loosen the rear end seamed to be normal - or only on Yamahas ? C- racer don`t like licence plates!!
My wife thanks for the "flowers" - i need one weekend to persuade her, to make some "pinup" pics. But i`m very happy with the result.

So boys - remember what you learn in this critical situation from me - turn arround your sweatheart, and let her place on the tank - it`s anytime the secure postion - and the view on the legs is also possible -
Only thing you must do - be faster than the police!


Andreas


Tomorrow i replace the tire, and change the drumbrake into a version with ventilation holes - looks more "speedy"
update next days
