History

1985 Dnepr MT-11 (Black)

Modifications

Drivetrain
I laced new wheels from Germany onto the stock aluminum hubs using stainless steel spokes.
Interior
Still the original 650cc boxer engine, with newer Russian carburetors
Suspension
Mainly for style, I used a BMW R71-style fuel tank and headlight. A spring-mounted leather solo seat replaced the original rubber
Wheel and Tire
Entire electrical system is custom - my design. I used a modern fuse panel hidden in the left side tool box, and automotive-grade wiring and connectors throughout. An electronic ignition replaced the contact points system. All lighting is now LED.
