Thanx Farmer....I posted the question on a facebook group and the debate rages on haha!

I've found Avon do a wet tread pattern road legal tyre that just might do the job.

I spotted Bridgstone Battlax wets on a tasty tracker the other at a local biker meet, liked the tread pattern and wondered what the pitfalls were.

I'm looking forward to seeing it done too ;)

Sorry to report that due to photobucket's change of terms of use images posted to their site can no longer be shared with third parties unless an annual charge of $400 is paid.

Literally hundreds of images and years of project updates are spoiled......I will find another hosting site in the near future. I cannot justify the time to update links on previous postings I'm afraid. :(

Sadly, the caliper mount doesn't fit the caliper I want to use :( I think an NSR mount will have to be found and modified to suit. All part of the fun they said ;)

PS I've now found IMGUR to host my images (Photobucket can do one, bastards) test image for reference.

Can anyone please help to identify the forks I have...no name or brand, very little to go on, except for this small logo on the lower fork leg. Any ideas?



Some small step last night. Amazingly, the forks with no name are almost identicle in the way the front wheel mounts,stepped axle spindle, single clamp mount and threaded the otherside. The stock NSR spindle works well enough, just a slightly smaller threaded end, but long enough to allow a nut/washer I'll have made in stainless.

Can you see any problem with my idea?



Fits snug enough on this side, I reckon?


The wheel appears to sit dead centre with the spindle maxxed out on the stepped stops.



 ......so sort the nut/washer and a spacer and speedo drive and it'll be good to go I hope?

Another blinding day rummaging around Kempton.

Here's the lastest haul for the WTF 200/2 project:



Brand new ignition switch unit with keys = 1

20x330mm GS axle to modify = 2

Throttle with alloy switch gear - 1

Suzuki SB 200 gasket set = 20

Thick biker socks = 10

Spotted a good few further solutions to forthcoming requirements I think. Great day out and it only showered on us once :)

As per the title, slowly slowly does it.

Just received a delivery of parts to help me progress the fit of the front & rear wheel from Legend Biking.



After a quick wirewheel session





Honda fittings really do clean up like new.
