Response to Re: What model is Stinky bob
It began life as a 1976 4 speed 6v MZ, and when I got it the thing was almost totally factory standard, but the only thing left original now is the frame. Everything else has been changed a hundred times.
The current engine is a 1980-90's MZ ETZ251 design and the front wheel is the hub of an early 1970's Yamaha with a 16 inch rear MZ rim laced onto it and the petrol tank is APPARENTLY a middle 1950's BSA tank (although the guy I got it from said it was Russian) and the seat and some other assorted bits came from dead Tigger's shed. Tigger was a Vincent nerd so fuck knows what was in his shed.
The carb is a complete space shuttle mystery I can't even go into here.
The headlight is old MZ stuff and the mudguards and shit are all old 70's MZ stuff. It used to have shocks but I was given a couple of dead straight handlebars so one set became handlebars and the other set got cut up to weld MZ shock mounts on for struts.
Each fork leg is filled with my own human poo, which is why I'm trying to get hold of Roland to help me make a new front end of my own design.
Basically, if you took a really crap old 1970's bike and hit it repeatedly with a hammer and then set fire to it and the put the fire out with your own human excretions and let it dry in the desert for 13 years you'd end up with something similar.
