its just the picture., the tires are the same size front and rear.

same width etc.

ordered a battery for it today, one of those super b 5200's, getting a husaberg steering damper fitted in a week or so, and the headlight will follow shortly after.

will post pics once its done

cheers

Gary

Very nice.

Every now and then I get silly ideas and was thinking about doing this to a 650 Berg as 650 honda conversions are a bit common.

Doesn't look like there was been much if any frame cutting involved.

Yeah, that's f'n hot! I'm all for a bit wider wheels too, but, that's a fine build!
Thanks from FlatTrack

the rear end is all lowered, the rear frame has been chopped and re wielded, the angles are all lower, the only other one I have found on the internet didn't have this, so maybe its not 100% required ? i dunno

You have to alter the angle on the rear loop slightly to keep a straight line under the tank/seat unit. As FT says though its not a lot. The hard bit is getting it all lined up.
There was a Berg racing the DTRA series but have only seen one picture of it on the starting grid.

Mine a while ago before work commitments slowed the project down.
The front tire only just squeezes between the fork legs!

Playing with colours and finding a light for the MOT, this one didn't make it out of the garage
