Swiss' Army of
Honda XL480 !
the disc brake on the primary shaft! Cool exhaust too! and *just* over 200 lbs!
this is what I call a Swiss Factory Works bike!
Swiss Says; "Next
I will be adding a different swingarm to it and a single shock rear
suspension. I hope to get it to the 210 lb. range from about 218
lbs that it was in the
pictured version. I would actually like to pull the stroker crank
out of it and go back to a stock stroke with a carillo rod rather than
the Powroll stroker crank. Running a 41mm carb and could go a lot
bigger. Some of the '70s performance 403cc engines from Powerhouse
used the 44mm Mikini roundslides. Note the short snail pipe at the
front of the engine. I want to find one of the '89/'90 ATK Thumper
gas tanks, I think that they were just about the ultimate MX/Play tank
ever made for the thumper configuration. And my countershaft disk
and side-cover mods for the XL125 magneto. On the other side I
also have a trailing brake lever like the ATK bikes used."
Sweet bike Swiss!
