   Thanks for the shock options. NoRiders, what did you get your shock made for? Svkustoms, where did you get your updated R1 shock spring?
   I just got some '82 Cr480 footpegs to change out the soft rubber stockers. Since I have to add new clevises to the mounts I might move them back a couple inches.

   My next idea to make this more difficult than it has to be is to use another GSXR front rim I have for the rear. I want a 17 (for the wider modern tire selection) with a disc, and the GSXR rear is very wide, both at the rim and the hub. The 3.5 x 17 front matches and fits well proportionally, it just lacks a cush drive. I think I can adapt one from another hub to the unused disc pattern.


     I just can't leave well enough alone. This was supposed to be a quick, cheap build of a free bike.
     It's all relative.

  After taking a side trip to exercise my ADD,
http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=69776.0
I realized I didn't need another project and applied what I harvested from the XR carcass to my little burro here.













Right now the seat is just sitting on the frame. I like the seat, possibly not the angle. I want to add a bobbed rear fender.
I am not sure I like the GSXR front fender on this, I may need to make something more old school.

I agree about the angle. With the seat like that you would be sitting on the tank.
Upper frame rails need to be made parallel to the base of the tank.

Just make sure you still have the tyre clearance you need.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

Well, I remembered, too late, I unintentionally started two build threads that are no longer two builds. If you’re curious what became of this, I am picking the story back up in the other thread-
