I think the across the pond turbo 750 was just done :ohmy: , but I do have other turbo 750s in my upcoming bikes ;) . But I like to spread the wealth of qualified candidates out so you shouldn't see repeats of models to closely together.. :whistle:
Going bow hunting for deer in the morning so I will ( should) be up early and will make my comments in this thread on Octobers BOTM

Good morning and please join me in welcoming our BOTM for October :laugh:
Baldy 110s 82 GPZ 750 / 1100 ELR Clone :lol: :lol: :woohoo: :woohoo: :side: :side: :side: :silly: :silly: :evil:
This bike is the result of Paul Baldwins ( Baldy110 ) dream to create a ELR for himself .It all goes back to when he was 19 years old and in 1982 and sat on a real ELR. It was game on from then on. B)
Baldy 110 has created quite a unique motorcycle for himself.
Taking a 750 frame and reworking it to fit the GPZ1100 motor is no small task. Cutting and reworking the frame, fabricating
new motor mounts.
Adding ZRX rear suspension and Yamaha FZR 1000 rear set controls
Mikuni RS 36 Carbs, WEB Cams, 1175 Wiseco pistons, and a reworked Kerker pipe
Paul used a Koso RX1 Gage pack and a Ballistic battery and saved 6 pounds
Bike was built on a diet and weighs 420 pounds fueled up and ready to scream :evil:
Paul used a GPZ 550 fairing as he felt it gave his creation the proper look
NICE JOB PAUL !!!!!!!!
Baldy has had his 650 featured in the past and he and I decided it was time to show off the ELR Clone
So Please join me in welcoming Paul and his beautiful ELR to Octobers BOTM :woohoo:

Well deserved, great bike, I have had the pleasure of chasing Paul and his bike around the New Mexico desert last year.
It was a blast.

Would love to have it! Beautiful bike! Baldy, is it possible that you can you give us some impressions on the bike's performance? With the big motor light frame and low total weight, I can only imagine the gush of power from that bike.

YES B)

I never got around to submitting my nominations for botm (I will), but I have a list of candidates in my head, this one was
right at the top.

Beautiful bike and extremely well done - I have both a 650 and an 1100 so I have a rough idea of what it took to squeeze that engine in a 750 frame and make it look good too, impressive work.

Congratulations, Baldy, highly deserved.
