Awesome!!! that thing is sweet. Im going to be (im) patiently waiting for a built thread on that thing! SO COOL!!

Hope everything gets straightened out for you after the storm bud.

Thanks. Everything is so rusty. eg my torque wrench used 1 month before the storm, i WD40'd it put it back into it's plastic box, put it in a sealed plastic box with other tools then into a kitchen cabinet, inside a shipping container, not flooded. 6 months after storm torque wrench a rusty stick. I had no water (unless it rained) for 2 months

I found someone parting out a bw200 on facebook and made a deal on the forks. They'll need resealed, but the tubes are in great shape. The forks are a straight bolt on operation to the tw, even using the same bearings,  so not much magic to show there. The front tire looks shorter than it is probably due to the width, but in reality it is only an inch shorter than the stock tw200 front tire.

Cool. Looks like it needs some kind of monster fork brace, too.
