    You can have the wheel for a carton of olds if you want it.

    Do you need any other parts?

    Well I was hoping for the triple clamps and forks so I can just swap the whole lot, but the wheel is the main thing so I'll take it.

    I was going to start looking for a V Strom tank because the Spada only has an 11 or 12l tank, and because the airbox is at the front of the tank I don't think much else would fit.

    Do you have any use for a Technomousse 140/18 mousse? I bought an unused one at a swapmeet ($10) and forgot I don't have anything that runs a 140 rear tyre in 18 inch, thought you might have a use for it. I don't have the lube but what do you expect for free.:lol3

    That goes to show that seeds take differently to different soil.
    It took about 0.1 seconds to grow on me.
    Absolutely love it!:raabia

    Upon reflection, the center stand is way too big.

    So, I made a small side stand for it.

    That is bad ass. If you're anywhere close to Alabama with that thing I want a drunk sidecar dirt ride in that. I'll even wear my old leathers

    ..is that a salad spinner thing on the fuel tank thing?

    Ah, my bad.

    That's a Donaldson air filter fitted with a pre-cleaner. I may have to try putting some salad in there, though, as the dust swirls around nicely.

    It's got the fitting for it. I bought it as NOS, it didn't come with the indicator gauge, though.
