Fitting the fork WP 48 mm from the motorcycle KTM SMR 990 :панк:
Did you machine the triple trees?
A stout pair of triples. Given the bike they're off-of, they may be the correct length, and it should be easy to find the correct springing for something of that quality.
A quick check shows 7-1/2" of travel, and a dry weight of 460 lbs, (990 Duke) so you have a difference of about 140 lbs. That's roughly 1/4 the weight of a VMax.
The bulk of the installation reminds me of the Excelsior/Henderson.
The company manufacturing the forks is an alternative to Ohlins, Ohlins is owned by Yamaha. It's WP, which used to be named after the brothers, with the "P" standing for "Power," but with the negative connotation for their company name, in common parlance, they shortened it to "WP". The family name is White.
The weight of the motorcycle was 265 kg, I tried to make it as easy as possible, wheels were installed CARROZZERIA
I really like the whole setup. From the design of the triples, to the color of the forks and raw aluminum and finishing it off with multi-function gauge.
Did you do the machine work?
No, my friend did from DoomsdayMachines
R.E. doomsday machines:
Ten thousand dollars for a set of Gen. 1 VMax cyl. heads is above my price point!
Stuff is well-done though.
I caught that too.
Interesting stuff. I like the clear engine covers.
The OP's font end design (triples and headlight) and the clear engine covers, reminds me of work done by a past member here, Przemek (Satariel666).
Doomsday did not make those heads by the way.
I also have one of the front ends here that we're going to use on a build. I've had it for a few years now.

Am I still a "figure" on this forum?
Absolutley Przemek, you were missed no doubt.
I definitely enjoyed seeing what you were up to Prez. You always had some interesting projects.
Same here Prez! Nice to see you drop in, don't be a stranger!
