    I was searching the internet for shinko tires and all of a sudden I bump into this site. Thought I might as well share it with you guys (and girls of course).

    It's a Hyosung, but they sure put a lot of effort in it to make it look like a (very awesome)Tdub.

    I really like the upside down forks on it. Makes it look even chunckier.







    Does anybody have an idea how these forks would last off road? Cause of the fact they're from a yamaha R6, I asume the bushings aren't really made for off roading?



    Enjoy!

    I've never been able to find a parts breakdown for the Karion. Could be another source for 36 spoke rear rims.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Unfortunate name for a bike. I hope they have the smarts to alter it if they ever market those in English-speaking countries.



    Naming a bike after things you find laying dead on the road seems a poor marketing strategy.

    Do you think that those R6 forks use the R6 Triple T? Looks like it to me comparing pics of R6 forks and triple tees? Lot of R6 forks for sale on ebay. I really like that look but I need a second TW200 to do up!

    Change the name they'd sell great here, that is if they're half as reliable as the real deal.
