    Ben.. you need to put that heavy classic in the corner of the living room…..and get a modern light bike! It’s looking sweet though! 20210327_101917

    I’ve had two modern trials Gas Gas 300TXT, and a Montesa 4RT. Nice for just trials. I like the old school with a seat so I can sit once in awhile, while I’m trail riding.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    I think  I’m with Ben on this.. riding that old classic specially  if the mods work for him… will be like an a old pair of comfy shoes…!!!

    in fact … picked some fiberglass today… will copy Ben’s airbox but will try to build it out of fiberglass only 🙂

    I’m assuming he way you been working on this project,  the vw van will be completed just as fast so you will have the TL up and running pretty soon?

    ‘I guess Im the opposite  doing projects… I had a bathroom it took me 15 years to complete… wife was ready to kill me… I saw her taking notes watching “criminal minds”  that was i guess her hint and reason to finished it…  don’t want her giving my bikes and guns away!!:-)

    Ben I hope your VW van  is back on the road again…

    Have a few questions for you… keep looking at your new airbox was trying to figure out how do you get to the  filter and I m assuming you are using a different filter ? a K&N for any chance?

    The top comes off. I’m just using flat Uni air filter foam. There will be a wire mesh sandwich to hold it in place. I haven’t finished it yet. Will post a picture when done.

    And yes, bus is back on the road.

    A la Bultaco Alpina but instead of the top the side  one screw hold the side panel a spring , and the filter sandwich between 2 screens… I was thinking like a shoe box and   in fiberglass .. have to work on the front garden wife  got 25 bags of mulch I have to put down..

    your van… reading on the forum you had a few issues with bearings… and maybe i didnt find all the info.. but you are using the VW transmission but were planning using another transmission… have you done that? so do you make your own  adapter  so is a 2.5 Subaru single overhead cam engine so is pretty much year 2000 and newer? you are using that efi controller… been trying to find the link to the whole buildup of the swap.. seems like im finding pieces…so you do this swaps as a business?

    Finished up the air cleaner for the TL. Bought some air filter foam that was flat and some 1/4” chicken wire for support. The bottom one is glued in. On the top piece, I seamed the edges with flashing aluminum. Walla!Air cleaner.

    All ready to go bash some rocks. Saved 5-6 lbs. with the changes. Weights 215 now with half tank. Was 220 stock according to the ad brochure. But I didn’t weigh the whole bike before I started.

    Just about 5 minutes in my front yard, doing full lock turns in the gravel driveway. Got some work to do on my trailer before heading out to the trails.
