the un named bike

Postby Reaper » Fri Nov 25, 2011 9:28 am

Just thought id stick my project up here. I will be doing a full write up along with plenty of picks once i start putting it all together next year when im back in country...

This build started off from adding little bits to my 525EXCR supermoto, i got a little carried away and decided to build a complete bike from scratch. I have also decided to make the bike theme Afghan Heroes because of all they do for the forces and their families. Yes i know there are many other great forces charities but i have chosen to promote Afghan Heroes.

As you can see ive still not came up with a name for the bike yet.

Here is the spec so far...

DevTech frame

DevTech swing arm

560SMR engine STC tuned

41mm carb

Suter slipper clutch

Factory rear shock

52mm WP factory forks

Xtrig triples(factory ones for the forks)

Red Beringer radial caliper

Red Beringer disc

Red Beringer clutch MC

Dual FMF titanium pipes

Red CDI with mapping switch

Factory ignition with quick shifter

Factory K&N with carbon pipe to fit carb

Carbon bash plate

KTM SXS steering damper

EDIT: to avoid confusion

When you say dedicating, what do you mean? A theme bike or are you donating the bike to some organization?

Then name it what ever you want. it has nothing to do with the sacrifice of the brave service men in Afghanistan.

No no, it has nothing to do with them at all... has nothing to do with the fact ive just spent 7 months out there, nothing to do with the fact Afghan Heroes dont just help out the wounded, they also send out welfare parcels to us, nothing to do with the fact they support the families of the fallen and nothing to do with the sacrifice of any of my friends/commrades who have also served in afghan...

Nob :roll:

Nope, Grendel doesnt get it. This bike doesnt do any of that, it doesn't enable that, it doesn't raise awareness of it (ececept to the 12 people on sd.net).

If it makes you think it does then great. Grendel honors your service.

ha ha... or the people on FB or the people on SM forum, or the guys at the streetfighter mag or anyone who gets involved or hears about any of the charity events i do on the bike or the people that see it around with the Afghan Heroes graphics on...

Nope... not many at all :roll:
