Think postie bike meets Rallye bike........fairing, tank, guards, seat, covers etc.

Just throw the bike on its side after the axle's out and the chain's off the sprocket.

Joe, re: your pm
here are all the pics I have of the tank setup.




In order to fit an XR tank, you'll have to relocate the ignition switch. Seems the best place is on the speedo mounting bracket. Simple to do.


If I find more pics, I'll post em up.

Cheers Billy

Really Trev?? I thought I would be the only one stupid enough to do something like that!! I guess it is a race to see who can finish first. hmmmm, I think that is a race you have already won, cause I can't see myself getting off my lazy arse all that often to work on it!

I have so many (stalled) projects on at the moment I may not get around to it, first I want to get it registered and then I'll go mad with it.

Hi Joe
These are an old model made by YSS Suspension.
I just got them cos the looked cool, but they do work better than the stock shocks and are rebuildable.
The YSS guy in Australia doesn't live far from me and he did tell me that the current model for CT110's is $345.00.

Hey all, looking to get some decent tyres, my road ones are rather sketchy (but fun) on the dirt. Looking for something like the Mitas E-09 (similar tread pattern, road legal etc.) anyone know of anything close to that out there that fits the postie?
