    Wow Gnarly, what is your tank held on with!? looks like blue strapping!

    Fast MC, Respect right there is that a +2 rear swinger? combined with the forks it gives a great overall stance! bet it handles awesome!!

    mine looks like this now...

    Thanks...The swingarm is a Daytona +8cm with showa 285mm shocks. It does handle pretty well on the track although the rims are too narrow to handle a decent size tire. They will be soon replaced with Daytona 5 spoke rims in wide sizes.

    Forks and swingarm are from an old XR75 and the shocks are early CR80. It was a pretty good jumper till the shocks took a crap. Now they're pogo sticks !

    certainly can put bore kits thru them. Its basically the same motor as what the xr50 of today uses. Except ours are 2o+ years old. Frame and swinger have changed and crf;xr tank seat shrouds do not fit without modification. I'v got a bare frame{z5or 85ish model} and fork tubes available should you be interested, check the for sale section. Will also include the tank which i prefer over the j shape tank if the $ are right.

    Awesome resto mate! you should be Rapt!!! it looks a treat! did you take pics during the build? Should do a thread ;)

    keep them coming if there is more! everyone loves pictures of zeds!

    Is it back to original or have you tweaked things a little internally?
    funny its got a J tank on it! I want to use the R tank on my J frame, but the locating lugs are in a different location and it sits REAL far forward :(
