    i have a complete 2000 cr250r (honda) front end on my 1986 wr400. all i had to do was machine the o.d. of the bearing races .015 on a cylindrical grinder to fit in the husky frame and made a 1/4 " spacer for under the top triple clamp. pretty easy install. now it stops and the fork seals dont leak every ride. :cheers:

    thanks visiteur1948 for alerting me to this bike :)
    I think its fantastic that someone on the other side of the planet gives me a "heads up" on bike I didn't know was advertised locally
    I'd stopped looking because Im trying, yes trying, not to collect more....but now I have the 4T bookends, and air-cooled 1984 TE 510 Twin Shock (pic has it mocked up with a 175CC tank) and a 1989 WC Monoshock TE510

    I like the hand guards they take a beating by the brush and tree branches. That visor does too. I've rode visor down many times. Well for a split second.

    well, the 360 is tore down waiting for a rod..but there have been plenty of pics of it on here. the 84 240 wr is in boxes, frame needs picked up from painting. i have been gathering quite a few parts for it but dont really talk about it as theres nothing special going on. the 400 is in deep sleep boxed up with all the other spare stuff.

    the bike pictured above is really my 250xc bike with a "430 conversion"....the rest of the 87 430 is hanging in the garage attic and the 88 250xc mill is complete sitting in my engine cabinet. im afraid to run it any more hours without a piston, altho it still has great compression.

    just a matter of where to put cash, right? the ford in the background has been taking more of my cash than any bike this year.

    no, the truck is a "survivor"...has been kept away from salt. its nothing real special. 96 f150, 4.9 big six, 5 speed...ive done a nice electric fan conversion on it, and replaced/updated all sorts of stuff. overhauling the suspension currently...
