I got a brand new tire (130/90-16) for free off pirate so its what im gonna be running. Today I rebuilt by forks and got my front tire mounted up. Ill grab some pictures tomorrow of my front rim all painted with my new tire. I bought a seat today.



Its the same seat I mocked up just with a different design.

Heres some updated pictures.

New front tire and painted rim.





The front Forks rebuilt with new oil and dust seals.

Heres a couple pictures of my buddies XS650. The rear of the frame was moddified to allow the shocks to drop the bike. That is a Sportster drop shock on the back right now. We have to do a couple more frame mods to get them to fit in the back.

New rear tire, looks ALOT better then the old tire that was on there. It turned out to be about a half inch wider then my old one.

Its actually a Chen-Shin tire, it was new and the best part it was free.

The bike is probably a couple of weeks away from being finished. I have to do a little bit of fabrication to get the seat to fit, but other then that its just hooking everything back up and a couple little wiring things here and there.
