    Fine and detailed work my friend. Love to hear your opinion on front fork exchange, single front disc (braided stainless lines?) and rear shock mods compared to what you had.
    Recently some big kms on a 2005 TA in Australia. Serious top billing for next adventure in Africa.

    hi. sorry for late replay. front fork is better because its possible setup it for soft or hard. single disc i say its same as original 2. yes on bike are steel brake lines. rear shock is just refurbished. i like softer ride and i keep original spring. but i have hyperpro spring if i will ride with passenger.
    i was with my friend on small trip around black sea https://www.polarsteps.com/sammo/1681220-blacksee. i had small bag on rear seat and i was ok with original spring just tide it and littlebit harder front shocks.
    i just missing 6th gear and maybe 20HP more.

    Nice work. Coat your tubes in baby powder to help protect them in the hard plastic case.

    after some time i decided update mu cheap exhaust. i got with it about 10k km. it was from china (about 30 euro). color was black- it faded to gold one :)
    i was looking some more street legal and nicer sound. after long searching i pick up arrow dakar muffer.
    here are some pics

    it arrived in box from italy:

    it was for model up to 1997 and i have 1998. i was expecting some modification but fit nearly perfectly. only small difference is size of pipes where is muffer connected to exhaust from engine

    I had the same on mine, saved a huge amount of weight from the OEM exhaust and sounded nice and deep and not too loud. Never really got too hot either. Fitted the lines of the bike nicely.
