She must have known that you would need easy access to the Bristol classic bike show at Shepton Mallet in February.

What are some monolever rear ends that have been modified to fit a r80/r100 frame?

There are only two monolever rear ends: The one on the G/S and ST models and then all the road going ones (RS, RT, R80/R65 mono, etc) They are both the same swingarm apart from the fact that the G/S/ST one has a shock mount on the swingarm whereas all the road versions have the shock mounting stud on the final drive. The G/S and ST used a 3 lug final drive with a spoked wheel and all the other bikes used a 4 lug final drive with mag wheels. A R100GS or R100R 4 lug spoked hub can be modified to fit them though. That'd probably be the better route due to the wider selection of final drive ratios available.

After searching on here for what I'm thinking of doing I believe I'm interested in using a paralever rear end in place of my stock r80 monolever.

Has this been done and what kind of advice can I get? I want spoke wheels with rear disc brakes.

Some updates.

I pretty much have the front suspension sorted. I've gotta find a spoke front wheel still and then just need to figure out how im still going to do this rear end setup. Anyone close to Swindon in Wiltshire that has access to different types of rear ends?

Man the wheels keep getting better but the tanks keep getting worse

I'd love to move to England. I'm hoping to get over there at some point in my life. Your wife have any sisters in GA?

The first tank was just too small, it's a Norton Jubilee tank. This new one I picked up at an Autojumble cheap as chips and its from a Norton Dominator. I still have to properly clearance it and make some mounts, its just sat on the frame with a roll of tape holding it up.

My wife is English, thus moving here. She has a twin sister, but she's a bitch
