Big Dreams. Small Funds!
Looking great! I need to find some steel to start on my project.
The drum is fine. The trouble and expense of finding a compatible swap isn't worth it. 75/76 CB750f wheels are hell to find and cost upwards of $300 most of the time. DR350SE wheels are usually in the $200 range. I could go 17" and pic one of several DR650/KLR650 etc type swaps, but we're still looking at $150 plus. With the front brakes, there's way more stopping power than this thing will ever need. A bearing swap to accommodate the 17mm axle is all I need here, so I will take the path of least resistance. I don't hate a rear drum anyway, as long as the front end is stout.john83 said:You want to do away with the drum.

I kinda like it too. With some more thoughts, I think it will stay. I plan to build that roller into another 750 when I can source a good lump.Brodie said:Why not stick an absurd engine into that frame? Like a Vtwin or some such.
Personally I like the drum rear brake. Smoother look I recon.
