Thanks Stephen - ive got the front on picture of that bike, but not the rest!

I would like to go similar route that bloke has done, with cast wheels instead of spoked, and with the monolever rear end.

I think converting to a monoshock entails a K100 type monolever (and similar shock) with a new frame tab and reinforcement (if necessary) welded on to the rear.

I think going to the K1100 front end is overkill - im looking to use Jap bike stuff, maybe from an SV650 or similar, or maybe just one disk.

Another Question - does the K final drive bolt straight onto ANY monolever swingarm?

thanks again Stephen
