I almost bought a set of YSS shocks. heard they're designed by the guy who started Wilbers or something like that. They weren't 200 bucks though, more like 300 and the Works shocks were 400 with a 10% MOA discount. considerably less than the upper tier ohlins/wilbers stuff at 600-800.

The winter project got out of hand this year. Started out as a fork and brake upgrade and ended up with a major overhaul. Haven't done a build thread yet, but soon.

Wheels were done at Woody's in CO. 18x2.15 front and 18x2.75 rear sun rims from Buchanan in CA.


Powdercoated the frame, K forks and many other pieces.






installed an acewell tach/speedo-



lightened the flywheel and renewed the clutch, should go pretty well if I ever get it out of the basement!
