so far for the bike

Note the Fatique crack.
I am heading off with a car now.

Starting for a motorbike holiday to croatia on thursday

I am starting to a 3 week holiday to croatia this thursday. The Bike will be a Track T800CDI.
I will also do some Ham Radio Operations, so stay tuned, you may hear something from DD5TT aka OE1SRC.

I will also post a travel report here.

the hard ride

I could not let this parking in my friends shop, so here it is, my new chinese heist Bobber:


Tech Specs:
– 250cc
– Petrol unfortunately
– hardtail frame

It make a lot of fun riding it. If I would act logical I would drive a shared car, when I need one.

Aixam Engine

Yesterday I bought a Kubota Engine at I guess it is a Z402 from Aixam.
A first test revealed, that it perfectly fits into my old Ural frame, without any


So even if I don’t wanted to build on a russian bike base again, because there are so many more
things to do to get something relieable, than just putting the parts together,
the thing is, I have most of the Parts here now.

I also have the Front of a variomatic, to play around with.

Big Knock 2014

I was at the Big Knock after Fixing up my Bike at the Beginning of June.

Chinese monkey escaped from box

I thought about getting one of those chineese monkeys, for a while. Last thursday the cage from china was delivered, by a german monkey dealer.


I freed it from the cage, gave it new schoes, some oil, inspection and a speed sprocket!


It makes fun riding it. Those Bikes only weight 60 Kg. I did’t test the fuel consumption, but the commercials say about 2.8 litres.
So it is a good and easy city bike.

GS Broke down

Also, a few weeks after that missdated post, my Suzuki Cylinder head broke down. It was ill on the left
exhaust valve but now also the camshaft bearing is broken.

The valve cover was so rusty, i hat to grind away three screws.

meanwhile, i was thinking about single cylindered engines

The idea was to get around a frame mod. this time, but it was
depressing, the ural frame i have left is to small for the E75.

I think I need another frame.

Got another engine

I got another engine. A friend gave it as a gift.

  • Hatz E75
  • 350cc
  • 6 ps

There is also an old Ural frame available together with some parts for a cool bike!
Estimated fuel consumption should be 1-1.5 Liters. I hope.


The engine is perfectly healthy even if it was lying around for several years.
