I better start this thread before I get too far into the project and don't get to the posting. A little history first. I got the '96 Bandit 600 as a sidecar rig in trade for my KLR, details here . Which promptly got crashed in a lapse of parental judgement, details here . This leads to looking for a donor bike to scavenge parts off of. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the Bandit so I was open to anything. Fix the front end and leave it as a hack tug? Leading link front and keep it as a hack rig? Put it back as a street bike and sell it and look for something else for the Ural tub? I found a donor 1990 CR500 with good suspension and new plastic...now we have a plan.
