also i've shaved off just about every mounting tab not 100% necessary for anything for weight savings. i may run a small leather tool bag but im not sure yet.
I love a rebuild of any description, but your last post has me a little confused.
Your cutting off any tab or bracket that isnt necessary to save weight, but you`ve added that front end that will probably add twenty times the weight your cutting off.
Can I ask why your going for a leading link style front instead of a conventional fork set up. I understand that when braking this creates a sort of anti-dive to the front, but its only a 100cc bike. How much dive can you be trying to save on such a lightweight machine?
Please note Im not knocking your rebuild or ideas. Just trying to understand them.
