I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

Project Ground Pounder -1981 Suzuki DR500

Some parts came in so I couldn’t resist. Since I got my front axle in I finish welded the dropouts into position where they needed to be:





After that I was able to get the front wheel put together. 320mm rotor fits like a glove and looks like a beast!



With the spacers in place it’s like it was meant to be:





I’ll end up dropping the front end with a shock swap and shortening the rear hoop once I know which tire I’m running to hug the rear wheel and tire more but this is the look I’ve been chasing and I love it!
