First post from Northern California; looking for unfinished FFs

Hi I'm in northern california and while I've been interested in FF machines for a long time I've only recently gotten serious about owning one.

I've built some pretty unique bikes and trikes over the years but it's been a long time. My biggest claim to fame was a buggy wheeled speedway bike that got disqualified without any explaination except "you gotta be kidding me"

I'd heard that there were Quasars to be bought, but imagine none of them in the US,
If anyone has an unfinished project they would like to cash out of to move on to another, I'd love to hear about it.

Outriggers

I have just bought a Honda CH250 and am planning to convert it to a FF machine. It was great to discover this site, and I was astonished to see so many versions of the concept have already been produced by individuals without access to fully equipped workshops. Such a body of experience should perhaps be brought together to produce a fully marketable product.
Now a question: When it comes to designing an enclosed PTW necessitating the use of outriggers, has thought been given to the possibility of utilising aerodynamic lift to raise these? With lightweight, strong modern materials I'd have thought this possible, although I acknowledge it goes no way to solving the locking/unlocking requirement.

K75/Boxer FF

Not sure if this is the right way to do this (perhaps its a FF entrance exam, that I have failed)
I rather fancied a FF motorcycle with either a K75 or Boxer engine.
Any idea how I would start such a project. I have access to engineers/machine shops at work but only have mechanical skills myself.
I guess it may be easier to buy something and covert or at least ride around to get some ideas.
Where may I find auch a thing ?
I presently own an R1150GS, a K75s, an R65, 2 velo 350's a Suzuki 600, a Moto Guzzi Stornello 125 and 2 Yamaha RS125's.
I also have an ex Police R100RT that is for sale ('83 £1200) but may do a p/x on this or any of the others.

Eric of Barnsley

I passed my motorbike test, at the first attempt, aged 16 on a BSA 250 C11G a VERY long time ago. My next bike, and my favourite so far, was an AJS 350 Model 8. It was 'traded-in' for an MG sports car (TD). This I sold to help with the deposit for a house. There followed a donated Messerschmitt KR200 bubble-car then, with the arrival of a daughter, another MG (YB). There was an interlude of a few years before I came back to 2 wheels as a 'second vehicle' so that my wife could use the car. I started with a cheap BSA Bantam (175) which was followed by a Ducati 250, a Jawa 350 and a Honda CX500. This I have had for over 20 years but I have hardly used in recent years.

Ubiquitous Helix.

I purchased the Helix on a whim. What a good decision. The experience has whetted my appetite for FF vehicles.The Helix is fitted with a seat back which I designed to improve comfort on the longer runs. It folds back to give a clear seat for pillion or extra luggage room.

Last week I attended a camping rally at Bedgellert in Snowdonia, Wales. Despite the temperatures being around freezing the Helix performed well and carried me and the camping equipment over 600 miles that week-end.

Whilst there I happened on an old fellow BMW club member who had a Helix. He told me he is about to restart his project of an FF BMW twin. If he doesn't know of this site I shall be sure to tell him.
