Ftwelder Posted October 1, 2021 Report Share Posted October 1, 2021 I saw this junk bike in a local ad (as mentioned in another post) and thought it would be fun to have something besides my OSSA to ride twin shock. It was $120. 119179364_3280092998770353_632717131603431554_n by barnstormerbikes, on Flickr I have a 1984 KX 250 rear wheel, KDX drum front wheel, TLR triple clamps Sherpa Betor forks and a well equipped welding shop. I am mostly modifying parts and cutting a few corners to get it done in case things need changing Ill post up a bunch of photos tonight and more in the next couple days and I hope you find it interesting. Motor looks nice. I know it's rusted solid so I have very low expectations. DS185 by barnstormerbikes, on Flickr I had already made half of the fuel tank learning my English wheel and it looked enough like Suzuki for me to choose this bike. I built up my wheels and measured the original frame. Ended up reducing the head angle by 10*. seen in this photo with stock forks and lowered shock mounts. I should have increased the rate of shock progression by angling the shocks more. Untitled by barnstormerbikes, on Flickr I lowered the seat tubes more.
