Must be some mega stopping power! and easy AF to warp a disc as they can’t be floaters bolted directly to the rim like that.

I started lopping off all the old unwanted brackets and prettying up the scruffy Yamaha welding. Also I had a fabrication chap talk me through the tank mods I’m doing. Due to the various complexities of assembly I will gas and filler rod the patches on then braze up. Once pressure tested I intend to silver solder the frame bung receptor cups on. I’m getting more out of it doing it slowly and my struggle to sell it once done.

Swing arm bushes are fooked. Can't decide if I should try a needle bearing conversion or turn a couple of replacements. Need a new shock as well. Image
