    Using old parts.

    Used the adjusting ends, grinded them down to fit into the R6 swingarm so I would not have to swap tires and axles. Put the zr7 axle tube in the R6 swingarm before attaching it to the frame. I had to use a little hammer love for that. I also had to grind 1/2 inch of of the R6 arm to get it to fit.

    bike pic, messy garage

    Know I need to clean the bike, garage, and think about paint, minor touch ups, headlight fabrication, and who knows what else.


    thought the blurry pic looked kinda cool.
    Anybody have any thoughts or ideas?
