Very nice build! When can I expect to see a Sanjohsaki dealer in my area? Their product line is rather small but very interesting.
I have a couple of questions for you if you don't mind. First, unless I'm wrong, you are reducing trail when you swap to a leading axle fork. Did this have any adverse effects on handling or is this being compensated for by having the bike raised more in the front than in the back? Did you sit down and calculate the suspension geometry you wanted to attain or did you just do it by feel? If you did have a target would you mind sharing it?
Secondly, I'm curious what you've done with your footpegs following the break. Did you replace with stock parts or work out a way to drop the pegs while you were at it? Any pics?
Thanks for sharing the fruits of your innovation with us.
