My Dad used to drive a 52 Jeepster that he modified into a pickup truck in the late 70s. It looked pretty good, not all hacked up. Yes, they were 4WD. Old enough to count?

I'll mount a 150/60 17, supposedly some 160s rub the swing arm. I tend to be cheap, so it will probably be a Shinko Stealth 003. They seem to be the 705 of supermotos. I'll probably do a step by step...
