82 Hobbit Baker's Dozen build

So about 3 years ago I picked up a Hobbit pa50ll complete bottom end, a set of wheels, a subframe, gear box and rear pulley. Last year I picked up a Hobbit frame, a tank and a seat. The beginning of this year I rebuilt the bottom end with Dos race crank, bearings and seals. S few months ago Conan gave me a couple of Dr kits and I was able to salvage one. I started to put it together after I got the engine built.

Then I decided I changed my mind when I heard about Baker's and decided I want to do that since rally season was cancelled and if it still happens so I got to work digging out every possible part I could possibly use.

Very clean!

What is that radiator from? Are you planning on using that with a WC head?

I THINK the radiator is from a Peugeot SPX? At least it looks exactly like one. Yes I'm definitely running a water cooled head for sure. I figured me being fat and with extra stuff onboard it would be a good idea.

It originally was supposed to be in July but it moved to September because of the virus. We'll see how that goes also. I'm sooooo bummed out no rally season and this is helping me through it at the moment.

Re: 82 Hobbit Baker's Dozen build

Hot damn that's awesome! Hopefully you're getting some better forks?

It crossed my mind. I've ridden on way worse also so who knows. That's something easy to swap out so it still may happen. I'm going to be swapping in a MLM subframe, tjt complete variator and Dio intake setup this weekend and hopefully try to fire it up for the first time. Oh and water cooled head, pump and lines.

Kinda tough to see, but we had a harley seat on it with an airhawk pad and urban express highway pegs for max comfort. both me and fredward have back issues so we had to make it as cush as possible so we could actually finish the dang race
