While waiting on carbs and engine parts to finish up the motor, I'm moving to frame to finish out. Final pieces to the rear brake assembly are a CR125 caliper and mount that I altered plus hose, and a stay from (I think) an XL...

If you're into over-engineering something, sure. It'll be fine. More than it needs to be.

Coming together nicely deviant, that brake check rod would look the nuts as a stainless tube/bar with threaded rose joints at each end....just sayin' fella haha!

Motor back in frame. Button up from there. A little WD-40 shine on the frame, a hand rub on the tank. I'm going down to single disc on the front end...

Interesting, what are the benefits of this oil mod?
Do a better job of getting oil to the top end. Plus, the plan is to eventually convert to an external filter. I will tie into this system.

it would be prudent to have an anti drainback check ball valve in the outgoing oil line
another thing to look at would be tightening up the escape route for oil that makes it to the cam journals
you can pump lots of oil up there but if it too easily just escsapes duty it isnt doing much good
