\I hope someone on here gets it. I will probably go buy it this afternoon if no one speaks up. That is just a great deal. I cant be exactly sure but those look like the original tires even.

Throw an XR250/400 motor in this and you would probably have the hottest setup on the planet. Winter time really brings out my Craigslist addiction. http://bloomington.craigslist.org/mcd/3540987147.html

Well, I didn't get to ride yesterday, but it was a productive day for me with my tow vehicle... 2000 Land Rover Discovery Series II.

I installed a new drag link and turned all four rotors yesterday. That completely eliminated the steering wheel feedback I was experiencing under heavy braking.

Up next is a set of new OME shocks and maybe a 2" lift...

Some photos from the job...

Putting her up on the rack


Turning the rotors


Nice and true...


Driver's Front


Passenger's Front - With a nice look at the new Drag Link


Driver's Rear


Passenger's Rear


All done!


Took me about 2 1/2 hours working by myself to complete the entire job.

Monday I'll throw it up on the alignment rack and dial everything in to make sure the alignment is in good shape...

I'm very pleased with the results. I have no feedback in the steering under heavy braking at all.

I ended up taking about .004" off each rotor face to get rid of the warpage.

Glad to hear you picked it up! Our fold is growing! We are all going to have to do a small bike ride this coming season.
