FORKED

yokes installed, 500 XT fork on A7 frame, with conical bearings. all the spares are in stainless, mid steel out of stock....., spend a lot of time on this, superior part is in 316 , and will be paint, at last, only the dust cover stay "nature"

FRAMED

at last i've found a A7 frame at a decent price . some motormounts missing but they're not the same than them needed so not a prob , frame came with a good condition oil tank and toolbox . steering head isn't the same than the previous, diameter, lenght, restart from zero



top bearing place is out of the frame, cheat start.....

AND A DISASTER,TO FOLLOW

spend a lot of time to weld the rear anchor on the frame and nothing good. the tube is cracking just after the weld, all around !!! asked the owner, who make the frame, and it appears he don't use the good tube to do it. in fact he used what he found, i made some test, in the best case thickness is 2,5 mm, sometimes less than that. will be a crap festival all along the build. best way is to find another frame, this one will be broken quickly, especially in off road ......................bad karma

A GOOD NEW

got this pipes from http://www.hawkshawmotorcycles.com/ ,   it was a request of the owner . when i found them i've asked the seller about shipping cost : he said how much and add, if you can wait a week, i'll bring them with us, Jim & Chris have a house  nearly 40 km from here, world is small . so last sat they came here with the spares, good contact, kind people, perfect


they're installed, i must cheat everywhere cause Triumph frame is single tube, not this one. it's very close but OK
