Looking great PJ.  I started my build a couple weeks ago.  How did the lowered front forks work out?  I'd love any info!

Tyres turned up for the 'blue' wheels' yesterday  ;D
They are the biggest tyres I've ever even thought about fitting to a 360, 4.10 front and a 4.60 rear  :o :o
 The WM 3 rims are OK for that size, even though rear is close to it's limit
Here's pics, including original 3.00 front for comparison, 4.10 doesn't look too much wider

Nice! Those would be perfect for my little 200 (albeit maybe a hair smaller...)

What tires are those, PJ?

Cool! When did you decide to do an all-road version PJ?

It's the third one I'm doing, probably should have it in tracker section but couldn't be bothered to start a new thread
It's going to be 'flat-trakie stylee'  not going to run front fender, already have 'heavy duty' fork brace made  ;)
 I won't be able to ride cafe' for months after surgery ;D (plus cafe is in pieces for paint and 'pretty'  ::) )
 It may well be this time next year before I'm 100%, still don't have any decision about my back but insurance have OK'd elbow and shoulder surgery (elbow,3rd Jan 2012, shoulder- don't know, probably about month~ 6 weeks later?)
 Tyres are Bridgestone copies, Chapperal motorsports,  e-bay ($100.75 for pair and a tube)
 Free shipping over $100.00, I got a tube, they did me a 'deal' to get it total over $100 (would have been $113.?? separately for tyres with shipping)
 Always pays to check for stuff people don't advertise  ;)

Hey man, incredibly inspiring thread.  Starting to do some more involved builds myself, and I rather like the look of the cheapo piggyback shocks you reworked.  I'm thinking about getting a set and putting some decent fluid in them and maybe doing some shim tuning for my cb550.  Just wondering if you have suggestions for getting them full of fluid without machining a bleed port and whether you've had enough ride time on them to assess the durability of the seals and all that?
