    Why can't you just machine down the headstem and change the bearings?

    Did a bit more research looks like the only thing I need is crf cups for them to fit. The tapered bearing should add a bit more height so the stem should be the right length. just have buy some more bearings.

    Yeah that's the ones I need mate, I think I have a set some where ill just have to find them in the shed.
    So what is considered an 88 limited is it just limited to 88cc and 10" wheels. Although its not going to be a race bike that's direction I want the build to go.

    update

    Got a stem the right length for the crf style frame. No shop press no problem

    Threw it together, the rake isn't ideal but ill give it a go. still need a 10" front, a rear shock, sort wiring, air filter and throttle.

    Definitely looks majorly raked out man, shame really as the billet frame is fairly cool, may be worth going back to the stock frame with some bracing if you don't like how it rides.
    Looking good though man.

    frame is fine, the swingarm is to short me thinks it has a +2.5 probably needs a +4

    You think? It looks like it's sitting fairly level to me.

    20-30mm in the rear for it to be level. a bigger tyre and maybe longer swingarm will do the trick

    Fork rake doesn't look too bad in to me ?
    What's the angle degree on the front forks ?

    A few of the boy's here recommend the Bridgestone m404 for the rear (70/100/10) and M40 (2.5x10) for the front

    M40

    sorted the wiring out today and its finally running again added a key to the system to make it slightly less stealable.

    just a few more parts to go and it will be rideable

    Ordered a 10" front wheel from DHZ and may have lined up a +3.5 fast50's swingarm

    I put a 12" on to have a look but it sits to high in the front even with the 10" so im hoping the +3.5 will and 10" will get it to a point where i am happy.

    That's fair enough , I was just thinking it will handle better with the 12" front
