guernz's '79 SR
« on: Apr 08, 2012, 21:16:18 »
A few weeks ago it was a bone stock, rusty, and dirty '79 SR 500. It is going to be my daily driver, not a show bike. It is going to be a slow going build because of all my other projects but after finding this website, I found some ambition and am going to try to have it going by next spring. I have to many projects! This is where I'm at now. Some more updates within a week or two.

I'm thinking a mono shock, alum. swingarm, billit trees, 19" wheels, dirt track glass. Starting to draw the trees up now.

I bought one at the vintage motorcycle days last year for it and I'm using a alum Yamaha MX 400 tank that I aleady mod. to fit over the oil tank. The plan in the next couple weeks is to get my trees made and a shock mount made so I can mock the sub frame and swing arm up.

I finally have the trees drawn. I'm going to order the alum Monday and maybe start making them next weekend.


I might have to make a few xtra sets for my flat track bikes.

Dug some parts out of the shed today. The wheels are right off the old SR flat tracker. Brand new rear brakes I got at the VMD's last year for $30. I going to clean up the exhaust pipe and see if I can make it work. I got to make the trees. I have been putting them off for weeks.

I decided today to make a change in the game plan. I going to scrap the alum trees and swingarm idea.  :(  I really want to do it but don't have time and really want to get this bike back on the road(55 mpg). I going to run the stock trees and mod. the stock swingarm to use a mono shock. Planning on doing some cutting and welding next weekend so I might be able to post a couple pics.
