Haven't even got back to OZ yet !!!!!! (3 weeks)

But if you mean the drawing, well as you can see I got bored, hehe, and the 10 inch screened EEEpc I have is not really up to 3D rendering and the eyes get a bit sore having to be sooo close to the screen.

Hows your build going? or are we all looking elsewhere for build threads now that Mezo is onto the move and his build is kinda stationary at the mo....?????

Have you still got those dr inner tubes?

Does that not look like the perfect rear wheel for a storm?
I got a chance to test fit a capo rear wheel earlier this week and there's lots of potential there. It would take some custom spacers and the rotor would need to be brought out from the hub a little, but it could be done. It may be better to also use the caliper and mount instead of the suzuki one.

Sweet. The hub I used needed both a spacer for the rotor and the sprocket (the DR650 hub is narrower) and different axle spacers but its easy enough to do. You could even do 21 inch front for a tubeless front or even try so of the home remedy efforts for a full tubeless setup!!!!!

Headtube Mount.....????

This is the original idea.

But maybe have offset bolts into the headtube would be a better idea.....thoughts please....

bracket....

Took a few hours but still, happy with the result. 1/4 of a kilo.

I have 3 8mm bolt holes to attach the fairing/headlight/instrument side plates/mounts and another 4 8mm holes for hex bolts that will bolt to a curved plate inside the headtube similar to the attached pic


comments?

Nope, and I have given up for the moment. I have a newish dr front end on the way and a newish dl set of triples so I'll go back to the way is was pre crash except I'll put new seals and the like in. Yes, you know I'd like a USD fork front end but there is to many engineering problems if I wanted to keep the same geometry as I had. Well thats my reasoning anyhow.....

I finally bit the bullet and ground off the existing headlight frame mount and gave my new part a trial fitment.

all bolted up.

Bit the bullet, drilled some holes in the headtube and bolted the bracket on. Feels pretty damn solid to be honest so I'll call it a success.

Nice mate but I think "pretty damn solid" is an understatement you should be able to hang another bike off that sucker.

Got the front end mounted with the new guard. Had to grind off the old guard mounts but no biggy.

I got the chance to do a primary trial fit of the headlight and the oil cooler. Using the delron that I got the other day form a dump bin I know of made the job easier.

What do you think?
