Diesel Dnepr from Ukraine

Post by numuzmar » Sun Jun 16, 2013 6:24 pm

Hi!
inspired by many diesel bikes on the internet. i asked my self why cant i do this? and that's how i decided to rebuild my dnepr :D
this is how my bike looked last season:
Image Image Image

Then i bought an 186F china clone approx 400cc, and started to build adapter for Dnepr gearbox:

Image Image Image
Image Image Image Image

Then frame building begins:

Image Image Image
Image Image Image

nothing cant be achieved without helpful friends!

(i am one on the left with beard :D )

and some videos of the building process:

Keep up the good work!

Finally i am on the road !!!

top speed 65km\h :( - i will work for 5th gear and faster rear gear.
i don't need more than 70-80 km\h comfort speed, we have roads only on maps here in Ukraine :D
also my bike is street illegal :( and its almost impossible make it legal.

Summing up I very pleased :D

great looking bike! Congratulations!

You have the newer Dnepr gearbox, I think a fifth gear can be installed in place of the reverse? And you can also get faster third and fourth gears, or change the rear drive to something faster like 9/35.

I have had some problems with vibrations with mine so beware! Yesterday silencer from BOTH sides sheared their attachments and fell off, only 20km apart :D

My bike is very similar to yours and also based on a Dnper.

On the subject of vibrations it might be worth putting a clamp on that injector line as it looks to be quite long? Others have had probs with long lines over time.

Stuart done it!

sno-bro yes you're right, i can do all this modifications, its no problem to get this parts here in Ukraine, but its a money and time for installation problem, however i will work for that!
i saw this guy with installed 5th gear in place of the reverse, you can see on the photo a black lever for turning it on
Image
and about silencer you're right! end part of the silencer fell off too, on the road in small village, i have luck and found good guy with MIG welder, he helped me for free =)
you have made a great bike! i saw it long ago, this bike made me a great inspiration!

on this weekend i traveled 600km in Carpathian mountains, engine has already an small oil leak in the front :( but everything else is good. here is a link to my photo album of my journey.

Looks like you could use a powered sidecar wheel. :)
Good to see your bike is still going strong.

THAT bike! Pure rat goodness, and very clean at that - almost bobber-clean. If you disregard the wires, at least :wink: +3 to rattiness for being a diesel, too :D
