    they are a blank canvas, however might be easier to go with spoke wheels of an old XL/XR250 which still have the drum brake

    Art Shot :lol3

    thanks for the chat yesterday, good to catch up. Please tell me you're going to keep the "Rockstar" star on the tank......please.

    Hey Joe,

    I was going to put a Monster Engergy sticker on there . . . . .

    But, I could make a slight adjustment to the bikes 'Style' :lol3

    Well doing some more cogitating with this in mock up :norton

    I think the XR tank might be a bit small, and will have to be mounted a little higher t get the seat the right height..

    I have the old DR600 sitting here from the failed to launch RG250 Scrapper and sat the seat and Tank on top . . . .

    Think this might be a winner . . . . :freaky

    I will weld the subframe on the CB frame and it would solve a few problems.

    Joe, I will look for a Rockstar sticker for it . . . just for you

    If you go with a custom seat cover from Gordy Oz I'm sure I can come up with an appropriate Rockstar sticker for the tank.......:evil

    Also looking for a suitable 16" knobbie for the rear . . .

    So far the Bridgestone TW-40 120/90/16 seems to be top of the list . . . I am open to suggestions here . . .

    [​IMG]
    Have used the Dunlop K460 in 120/90 x 16" for quite a few years - good tyre, just see if I can find a photo :clap

    Very similar to the Bridgestone - can't find a close-up! :huh
    Cheers

    Gotta say that TW looks a lot more grippy than I imagined after we discussed it yesterday Pezz, that should do the job pretty well if you can get one at a decent (cheap) price.

    Bridgestone have to order Ex Japan and 3 months out

    Ebay US is around $120 plus freight ($US70++)

    I will get a price on the K460 and see.

    After PM-ing Baza, I had better come clean on this build :evil

    It has 5 stages :deal

    What do I have planned for this bike . . . . It will always be slow :lol3

    Stage 1 is rego and running for the Tiddlers Rally.
    Stage 2 is a big Quad wheel shoved in the back :eek1
    Stage 3 Quad wheel in the front on leading links
    Stage 4 Hydraulic drive to the front wheel

    So it will be slow, may have to Supercharge it which will be Stage 5 :lol3

    Think Rokon, I will call mine a Bloke-On :freaky

    Here is a Rokon with an old Honda twin fitted

    I see you've only told the viewers about 4 of the 5 stages and "glossed over" stage 5 details Perry?
    Does this mean we are not telling anyone about the nitrous yet?
