My solution was to turn down a spacer on the lathe, the middle diameter the od of my steering stem, the ends 1.5" long and .005 bigger than the id of my steering stem, this way I could cut the stem in half, press the 2 parts of stem on the spacer to keep everything strong and concentric and then weld the spacer to the stem and grind it down.

Stem part 5, done!! I'm waiting on my triples to come back from powdercoat and then I'll reinstall the stem with the allballs bearings needed for the dt175 frame.

Hoops just got dropped off here at my work! It's gonna be a work of art if I can fit this 17x3.5" in the yz85 front end, I may be having to buy another hoop that's skinnier. They look damn good tho!

Interesting project.  I can't get past the 3.5" x 17" front rim though.  That's a touch wide for the front end of a seventies 125/175 dirt bike isn't it?  What are you planning for the rear and what's the overall plan - mini motard or something different?
