 Additional TL1000R we used in the original prototyping phase. To prevent damage to our nice TL1000R donor, we purchased an additional frame and forks to use during prototyping phase of our enclosed motorcycle kit. NOTE: kit builders don't need to do this, we did it during development of the original prototype only.


Here we see how the TL1000 fits behind the firewall.



"Parting out" the donor bike

Although the CabinBike™ kit is designed to prevent permanent damage to the donor bike (in the event you wish to re-assemble the TL1000 R at some point) we chose to sell off the unused parts from our donor as we don't plan to re-assemble it. The unused parts shown here are being sold to recover some of the expense of the donor vehicle.
