I'm sure I replied a few weeks back on this to say I felt like I'd missed the original thread till I spotted original dates on the post and released this is a follow up makeover Doh

I concur on the smell of expoy which is nice even though you know it can't possibly be good for you Laugh

Managed to finish the seat unit over the xmas period, not done anything since. I have a need t focus my attention on the house this year, lots of jobs that need doing that I've been putting off, finger is to be well and truly pulled out.

Bike will continue on slowly as and when I get a chance in life! Sad

Ok, just a little update, what with everything going on, I've been a bit busy with other things in life. RollEyes


I managed to get hold of a pair of R6 forks for a bargain price, offered them up just for a measure up and mock-up.

The bottom yoke and stem has now gone away for modification and a new stem, so as soon as they come back I can fit them and measure up for a stepped upper yoke and get that made up too.

Taking a few measurements into account, with the change of fork length and change in wheel sizes, after the top yoke is made, the front end will be 2.5 inches lower than the standard XT front end.

Never would have thought R6 forks would ever be a possible upgrade but I like your where there's a will there's a way attitude Thumbs Up

I think I've read that this XT is mostly road going these days so could well turn out to be an inspired dicision

Anything's possible Kermit, just depends on how much it costs and how long it takes.



It's the flat tracker way. Thumbs Up Wink

Is this a cunning plan to create the longest running thread? Confused

Understand the problems though, still got to sort the old BSA and the newer c15. Dare not start a thread because it could take quite a while. Thumb Down

Well I now have the XT stem fitted in the R6 yoke and fitted on the frame, I have loosely fitted the forks to get some measurements required for a new top yoke which will be stepped to accommodate the shorter fork legs.

My main problem will be wheels, as they'll need to be built and likely to be special sizes, ooh that's going to hurt. RollEyes
