Looking good, as always! Someone made a great job on the spacer, very nice finish.

Is that a 190/55 on the rear? That's the size I want to fit when the current 180/55 is dead as it's not ideal for a 6" rim. No problems with swingarm clearance?

Clears the arm at all angles, but not by much lol. The pics make it look more dramatic than it is. There is about 5-10mm of room on the right side.

Yes, both my 99 and 93 are now 190/55. Probably as big as you can go with these old girls.

Just to bring my thread back up in the rankings, it looks like Photobucket has reinstated my links, albeit with a watermark, but who cares really.......I have them all backed up on a hard drive anyway. I guess I kinda owe them an apology? Nah, F that. But it's nice that the links are back :thumb:

Well, as promised, I'm back and fecking worn out from all that work you've done!!!!:) Hats off to you Ian, you are indeed some man! Congrats on two very desirable bikes (although I'm not over enamoured with the paint on the track slag, however I DO appreciate the work you've done to it and the cafe). I guess I need to go and check out Lamby's thread now. Only issue is that it's 150 pages long!!!!

:D

Thanks EXUP, it surely was project. Chop's thread may be far worse for wear. I remember a while back it too was plagued with dead links and no pictures, especially once he went to his vlog. I hope it's a good read, his build of Beastie was epic!
