    ISDT Airhead

    If you have been following the ISDT (International Six Days Trials) for any length of time, this might look interesting. It's a picture of something that Max BMW has dreamed up- and it looks like fun.

    I'm not sure Lew, a little more info-

    This is the bike you wish BMW had made. We took a toaster tank slash five, gave it a suspension boost, a bigger front wheel, more bore, a sexy ISDT exhaust, some knobbies and a few other fancy and functional features. You really have to see this bike to believe it. Currently at the CT store, it will be on tour this month to each of our other locations.


    There might be more on the Max website.

    If only that muffler was about half the size.

    A similar discussion going on in our parallel universe (aka advrider) revealed that this is a pre-owned bike, and it is for sale.

    Just as a price reference, someone noted that the exhaust system was a $3,700 BMW unit (BMW? maybe Siebenrock?) ...

    see > http://www.maxbmwmotorcycles.com/mac...s.aspx?ID=4855



    Interesting to note; the rear brake arm is in the "stock" orientation. Wonder how long it would last there out in the boonies?

    But then that's probably a moot question. How many off-road miles do you think this bike has ever seen?



    Nice project nevertheless!

    This bike seems modeled after the very early enduro bikes BMW built in the 50's and the G/S prototypes of the 70's. I recently watched an awesome 3 part video series produced by NorenFilms to celebrate the 30 year GS anniversary. (OK I am late to this party!) I learned a bunch of stuff I never knew!

    As a new to me 81 GS owner I found this stuff absolutely fascinating.
