My current DR just have to be long-distance 2-up capable, so lots of stuff I can not get rid of. But I think I should buy second one and turn it into 160 kg offroader.

Please keep us posted, it's really inspiring!

One question - for front forks - did you have to make custom yokes to fit or you used CRF tripple tree?

i used the CRF tripple tree and worked the CRF steering axle to fit the BIG. they are allmost the same (same length, and lower bearing)...i was looking for a very rear bearing (top bearing) that will save me that, didnt find...
the front wheel is the original and the caliper was adjusted to fit the CRF fork.

some pix from the way later on.

and- hello elephant man
