K1200RS – design work in progress

Welcome back to my world. Since August I’m working on this design. It’s pretty hard to obtain ANY line on this project. I’ve landed on making all the body work on my own. This is a challenge also. It will be my first tank made from a scratch. Material is steel 0.8mm and 4 mm iron rods for a mold. I’m not able to weld aluminium at the moment so that was the only option. I’m about to make tank and rear as one part.

The other thing that focused your eye is the majestic front BMW kidney-like radiator holder. This part was made by a friend of mine from Targal Motorcycle. This mold is made from 27kg block of raw aluminium. After cutting it weight around 6 kg which is a lot, but I’ll try to address this issue later. It would be a spectacular feature, as I wrote, radiator holder and a headlight.

Enjoy rather poor photos.

Did you saw my colors?

Check out the paint of GSX1200. I’ve branded this bike a little. Hope You like it.

Yet another, most popular custom bike, I suppose according to what people like and order to build.

The great Yamaha XV920 Virago.

This particular donor bike is a mint! Just look at this 33 year old Japan engineering masterpiece.

More photos and posts to come!

Now, I can say that there is ZX12R front and on it’s way and 1979 Kawasaki kz650 fuel tank being striped out of it’s paint. So to make Yamaha great – add some Kawasaki parts!?

As always – stay tuned!
