Thanks hurco550, glad to have ya here!

I also got the forks disassembled, and will get the upper tubes over to the powdercoater tomorrow. The fork tubes, wheel hubs and other random parts will be a really cool copper color.

My lowering springs came in last thursday from cannon racecraft and am still waiting on my spacers from racetech. Racetech has been kinda giving me the run around so hopefully they will be shipped out to me Monday and be here before I get the powdercoated parts back.

And to give y'all an idea of how much clearance I'm gonna have with the 17x3.5" front wheel in a yz85 front end it's gonna be super close but I can work with this!

Custom Spokes have been ordered from buchanan's, as soon as they come in I'll get it laced up and trued and then can really start working out the front wheel clearance.

Are you sure you can work with that?  What about tire clearance?

I'm thinking so,  If my calculations are correct the tire will only be 1/8 inch wider than the wheel. So .062 per side, I should be able to squeeze it in there (fingers crossed)!

I'm gonna go pick up a 110-70 here in about an hour to get some actual measurements off of to make sure.

Fiberglassing this evening! Hopefully this goes better than the last 4 times I've tried to make a tail cowl. Wish me luck!

You might want to try to stick a sheet of thick card stock on there and retain it with aluminum duct tape and then way it all so it can be removed from the card.  Then create a slight frenched in rear panel to take the tail light.

Or get some flashing material from your local hardware store to use to create a semi stiff backing to avoid sagging.  No one wants to see a saggy tail...  :o

That is normally what I would have done, either make a "mold" out of cardboard or foam but in this case I specifically wanted it to be saggy in the center  to get the curves that I wanted going off the skeleton tubing. Which I think work great! I'll post a few pics of what I ended up with.
