More Photos of 160 Roadracers

 

I've been promising to get some more photos up of 160 race conversion details, so here's a start.

First off we have a photo of Paul Gaudio's bike.

These are Chris Page and Charlie Johnson's bikes, with Dan Hill's bike in the background.

I'm pretty sure this is Chris's bike - he's got a good looking rear brake lever.   It's got a very low leverage ratio though with the cable attached to the end of the lever.   It'd take a pretty hard stomp on that lever to have very much rear brake action.   Some guys really like it like that.   Mine has close to a 3:1 ratio with the cable attached much closer to the pivot.   To each his own!

Here's Chuck Krauter's bike.

This is Chuck's nicely done catch can.   He's modified a stock 160 toolbox to be a very sano looking catch can.   He's also got carbon velocity stacks from Craig Hanson, and you can also see that they've added a crankcase vent in place of the oil dipstick.

Chuck has a very nicely done brake lever.   It looks like it has a decent leverage ratio in the neighborhood of 2:1.   In this photo you can also see what they've done for footpegs and rearset plates, as well as the really cool and spiffy looking rear brake stay redone in aluminum.   Chuck also has a nice looking 2-1 exhaust pipe.

These three photos are of Michael Fontanarosa's bike.   You can see he's using the passenger pegs as rearsets, is using a reversed shift lever for gp shifting and has a nicely done aluminum oil catch pan.   You can also see the scrambler exhausts with megaphones.   His brake lever also has a very low leverage ratio.

This is Jon Munns's bike.   He's got a nicely done shift linkage for street pattern shifting with some nice rearset plates and footpegs.   He's also got an interesting 2-1 pipe.   The bike is very nicely done as are all the Flying Circus bikes.   Note that he's removed the sprocket cover and added a plate to hold the clutch cable in place.   He's also chosen an interesting location for the battery.

This I believe is a Eirik's bike.   He's got a 2-2 pipe setup that apparently works quite well - his bike is fast!   You can see that he's using a reversed shift lever for GP shift, and has done a nice job on the rearset plates and footpegs.

I'll try to get some more photos up here soon.  

Cheers - Michael
