 So I finally got back to my own ride this weekend. Fab'd up a stainless box for the coils as they don't fit under the tank anymore





also got to machining the front rim making an adapter to run the second disc up front

Then my buddy offers up a set of RZ rims which are good in the fact that it's already duel disc and also both front and rear rims on my RD are 1.85 x 18, where the RZ rims are Front: 2.15 x18 and the two rears I got are 2.50 x 18 and the other is 2.75 x 18. The one that has a tire on it has a 130 tire where my RD takes a 110 rear tire. I'm just not sure as they are a little more modern of a look than I would like. Definitely very 80's! I'll get the bike a little further and go from there. The colour of the rims on the bike will be gold of the vintage race bikes TZ's, H2R....
 If anyone has any input or suggestions...

Thanks Drewski!

Also forgot to put in this thread was that I had got a new pair of rear shocks for this build. They appear to be of decent quality and are fully rebuildable with NOK seals. When I get to that part of the build, I will do a detailed rebuild on here replacing with a good quality oil and any other parts necessary
