    After searching on here for what I'm thinking of doing I believe I'm interested in using a paralever rear end in place of my stock r80 monolever.

    Has this been done and what kind of advice can I get? I want spoke wheels with rear disc brakes.

    Some updates.

    I pretty much have the front suspension sorted. I've gotta find a spoke front wheel still and then just need to figure out how im still going to do this rear end setup. Anyone close to Swindon in Wiltshire that has access to different types of rear ends?

    Man the wheels keep getting better but the tanks keep getting worse :lol3

    I'd love to move to England. I'm hoping to get over there at some point in my life. Your wife have any sisters in GA?

    The first tank was just too small, it's a Norton Jubilee tank. This new one I picked up at an Autojumble cheap as chips and its from a Norton Dominator. I still have to properly clearance it and make some mounts, its just sat on the frame with a roll of tape holding it up.

    My wife is English, thus moving here. She has a twin sister, but she's a bitch :lol3

    And if you think the tank is different just wait for the headlight I picked up...
