What an epic looking machine! Did you electro plate your rims? Is it an expensive process?

Had the rims anodized, that's the cheap part......about R200 per rim. Having the wheels rebuilds can be expensive if they're the tubeless kind, about R1k each.  You've got conventional rims? Should be cheaper rebuild.

Excellent!!

Unfortunately you've made me realise I have no idea what I'm doing with my gopro!
What editing software?
Hey, my son filmed and then he and and his mate put it together, will find out what programme he used and post it here  :ricky:

I hate it when the kids are smarter than us! :biggrin:

Hi Chuck,

The programme they used was Adobe Premier (the editing version of photoshop)
http://www.adobe.com/africa/products/premiere.html

Good luck and if at first you don't succeed, find a young one to do it for you  :lamer:

Humpty

Awesome! Thanks, I'll give it a try, but I doubt it'll be as good as yours!

Very nice Mike  :thumleft: I recall when tis project started and the trials and tibulations you went through with it. Shots for persisting. I've seen it in the metal and its a work of art.

Has Volker done yet with Gary Bosches' HP(N)2 ? Show us some pics of that if you can.

Thanks Jupiter!  :thumleft:
The HP(N)2 is nearly finished. I think it's gonna be a real stunner & a great tribute to the HPN marque!

CMF I assume you didn't extend the swing arm like HpN did on some?


No, I used the 1100gs  swingarm, driveshaft & the coupler that connects the driveshaft to the airhead output shaft. I sourced the coupler directly from HPN, they do a similar conversion for the paralever bikes.


OK, just wonderred, I heard somewhere they add a bit into the 1100 swing arm, but maybe that is on the 900RR replica versions, is the rear bevel an 1100 ratio one? 8)

HPN do build a swingarm from scratch, but also build bikes with the 1100 s/a + coupler.....a lot more cost effective option!
I think my 1100 ratio is 33/11, works for well with my longer 5th + my engine has some go-faster goodies in it.

White Rhino, we will definitely hook up for a ride over December!

CUF this build is inspirational! Thank you for taking the time to share with us. I think there is quite a few of us that would really like to have a HPN parked in the garage, however budget and time is mostly our constraints. True you started in 2011 with the red R80GS that I nearly bought, but you took your time to get where it is now. You could have build a HPN, yes time wise but also most probably budget wise as well. So why didnt you? I would presume three quarter of the fun was in the build itself! You wanted to go through the process yourself. You are lucky as you have the background to do it yourself. I would also think you progressed with the build as money and time dictated.

I have also ventured into a project bike. I could not go the HPN route as finances and budget stops me from doing it. Although I have the time to wait for a HPN I just cannot afford it. Quite a few different people have had the dubious honor of working on my project. I have however not posted a thread or one picture of my project for this exact reason. I am afraid I might be ridiculed. Sad but true. So thanks for being bold enough to post your build.

At least I will have some HPN type brackets on my single seat which DD is making for me at the moment! :biggrin:

 :thumleft: :thumleft: Thanks, appreciate the feedback. Very much a journey of personal satisfaction & an enjoyable learning experience for me. Just a pity that it has attracted such criticism from one member for clearly very self serving reasons. Just shout if I can be of any help, particularly if you need any parts ordered from HPN!

Having HPN do a frame for you & then having the of the bike built by a part timer in SA also doesn't make your bike an HPN. Kind of as "collectable" as a fiberglass AC Cobra. We each do what works best for us.

Was testing out and getting used to flying and caught this very funny reaction to the drone : :laughing4:

I do sorta feel bad for the guy, is also my first attempt at any video post processing. Working on a longer clip from that day and will tone the color effects down some.

I have loads to learn on the video editing and post processing side of things  :deal:
