    I don't have the confidence in my mechanical skills to do this, but I'll tell 'ya - I sure do like the look. Wish there was an easier way to get it..... :-)

    Ya my rear disc is massive. I was going to go with a smaller one but I gad this setup lying around and it bolted right up to the rear hub. I'm also doing a budget build so everything is modified by me l. I like the cbr 600 rear disc setup. It fits the look of the spoked wheel very well

    Got a gl500 I'm tinkering with. It's got the stock star lookin powder coated wheels. Anybody ever try soda blasting them and turning them into polished aluminum wheels? My brothers done it on a cb750 bobber of his but I haven't seen it in a while so I don't remember how good it looked. Might be a nice alternative if you can't find spoked rims or afford them.

    I really like the look with that tank! Is that a CB tank? I am looking at swapping out my GIANT 78CX tank.

    Are those the same forks? I like how much lower you were able to get them. Looks good. I've been wondering if my gl500i can do that. It has air adjustable forks so I don't know if it would be as easy to lower them. (Raise them in the tree). I haven't been able to look at them yet.
