    latest project: "Old Cro" the R-evolution

    The design work is done (after years of research, sourcing parts, and saving funds) and the actualization of my design obsession has finally begun. First order of business: a track-worthy chassis. Like a new father, I'm anxious to share pictures of the new-born, and entertain thoughts and comments.

    Progress so far:



    design: vanzen
    frame fabrication: Randy Illg & FRAMECRAFTERS

    stay tuned for further development..

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Another innocent Airhead bites the dust.

    Makes the remaining intact ones more valuable, I suppose.

    That has to be one of the most elegantly designed frames I've ever seen! Torsional rigidity will be the rule of the day! If there are any Motorrad engineers seeing this from the old days I bet they're saying "Why didn't I think of that!"

    I personally think you should paint the frame a contrasting color from the rest of the motorcycle to highlight it. If the bike is going to be black, paint the frame red like a Ducati.
