    Skinwalker's "Bush Bike" build

    So here is the (almost) completed project:

    ( Not intended for street use )

    IMG_0302.JPGIMG_0303.JPGIMG_0300.JPG



    Project items/changes:

    - Engine Rebuild / Wiseco 70mm Piston
    - Performance Clutch Basket, plates, pads, heavy duty springs
    - New starter clutch
    - New solenoid & Ignition coil
    - New seat cover
    - Valve seals, rings, Gaskets, heavy duty timing chain
    - Oil cooler & Radiator
    - New fork boots
    - Coyote Brown paint with protective enamel coating
    - Oversized foot pegs
    - Rear Blaster Shock
    - New front & rear brakes
    - Heavy Duty O-Ring Chain
    - Extended WR flexable foot shifter
    - Black Anodized 51T Sprocket
    - (4) Visible LED Lights
    - Dual Military 30 Watt IR Illuminator / Visible by removing blackout filter. (Lamp converted from 24v to 12v)
    - Light switch to select either IR Illuminator lights or visible LED lights ( either one or the other can be powered on in order to prevent accidentally powering all on )
    - Copper 90 degree elbow on exhaust tip (to push exhaust sound waves directly downward)
    - Brush hand guards on MSR handlebars
    - Fiberglass exhaust wrap - Titanium color
    - BW Triple Clamps , Forks, Brake & Front Rim
    - New clutch & brake lines
    - Duro Power Grip with polyurethane sealed rim, rubber coated
    - 6 Ply MassFx P377, ATV/UTV Front Tire ( 25 x 8 - 12 )
    - Keyed ignition replaced with on/off switch, green neutral LED indicator, Moose racing hour/tachometer,
    voltage readout indicator, dual USB chargers (5v 1A & 5v 2.1A) & battery disconnect kill switch


    At some point I will be exploring replacing the front drum with a disk brake system.. which then may lead me to a larger capacity tank, etc.




    Originally, it had bent front rim, forks & triple clamps were bent/damaged, cylinder head was pitted, clutch basket was trashed and too many numerous issues to count.

    Here it was when I picked it up:

    I should have taken pics of the other numerous damage and wear - it was quite intriguing.

    Very impressive.
    Those IR illuminators should permit sneaking up on tricky coyotes, witches and other shape-shifters on those night rides. ( subtle reference to Navajo mythology)
    Tubeless conversion of rear rim is something I would like to try following your technique.
    Really well rendered and complete customized bike, but does it also feature your improved bomb-proof clutch basket design?

    AAAWWWEEESSSOOOMMMEEE!

    For some reason, and I don't know why, but I want to add a Tank Cannon to it.
    If you ever post a video riding this TW, could you add some tank track tread sound to make it sound like a tank rumbling in the woods, please. ha ha

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    Clutch basket????

    I'm glad you asked! Why yes it does.

    T6 Aircraft aluminium, anodized coating, new pads with an additional (2) - built to last, take a serious beating & the unit is serviceable. I will be making some slight design changes to the cushions and a couple of final design changes to the CB before they go into production.



    *** If you want your rim tubeless, I'd be happy to do that for you for free if you send me the rim & leave the rubber strap on it and include a return shipping label.
