New 612 build from India
« on: May 04, 2013, 10:57:04 PM »
Chris Harlen from Bulletwalla's in India has just completed a 612 Fireball build over there in Delhi. The owner sent us a photo of it.
It's a pretty unique looking build.
The owner will be taking it back to Norway with him when he leaves.

So far, there have been Fireball builds on every continent in the world, except for South America.

Very unique. I dig the front fork. I hope it's as well built as the motor. IIRC this is probably the second 612 fireball. Is the longer stroke able to rev up to 6000 rpm ?

The springer front end is cool!  I can imagine a stroked Bullet is very torquey.

No, the longer stroke pretty much peters-out at about 5500 rpm in top gear. Still pretty good, but the strong point is lower rpm grunt.

The other 612 Fireball is in Scotland, and he has removed the long stroke crank and put a normal stroke crank back in, and it's now a 535 again.

Most likely the hubs were drilled for the extra spokes? Imagine having to true those rims! Cool build 8)

I don't know.
The builder is in Delhi, so they are probably from local sources.
Same thing with the girder front end.
