XR500 complete front end on Ebay.

But it may be a bit on the high side of your budget at $150, and it's in Toowoomba.

Thanks for the heads up tREV

They looked okay and maybe a little big

I am looking at some XR350 bits in Smithfield which is close to home. and a little cheaper, swingarm will be my next challenge

There is one on ebay for $5.00 so I might lash out on that too.

giday, I've been a lurker here for a while.I'm to blame for the cm. It belongs to a very short mate of mine(5ft and cash strapped) who wanted to have a go at some trailriding, but only had the cm250. It has a chain conversion(from belt drive) and now sports some longer rear shocks (from a chinese quad,fronts i think?). We had to ditch the front tyre and go back to a dual purpose as the poor old shocks couldn't handle the tyre size on the highway. The exhaust is simply amazing,sounds like a cross between a bmw twin and a duke. I made the pipes from old ironing board legs, and the muffler is of an extractor set off an aircooled beetle. The bike is ridden to work as well here in Brisbane.

he loves it! it goes quite hard(no crap! stays with my drz no probs! will spin the wheels easily in 1st an 2nd!!). Not only has it got him out adventure riding, it gives him great pleasure and exclusivity!!

Trickytrev, welcome to the assylum

Its on over Easter next year so you would have 2 days either side.

Great if you could bring the CM out for a spin.

What does it sound like?

Well I am more than a little chuffed today

I just won this on ebay this morning, which gives me all the parts I need to finish the XR460Four build. It is pretty close to home too.

Its an old XL250 with a XR Disc brake front end. I will be surgically removing the Front end, swingarm as well as many other bits. The seat will be great too.

The motor needs work but might be good in a Frankenpostie one day

Well I picked it up, 1985 XL250R with XR front end. Realy Happy

Disc brake front end and pro-link rear end.

Unsure whether to run the Prolink or twin shock.

As I am on Holidays for 2 weeks these will be waiting for me when I get home

What wheel size would you prefer to run.
Twin shock should be 18" and that pro-link should be 17".

Well it would be easier to plug and play and run the 17"

Havent really pondered it. I imagine the 17 was run due to space requirements for the prolink setup.

Also the prolink swingarm is easy to lengthen for an 18" wheel and adds a bit of stability especially if the donk going in has a bit of extra power.
