looks great man...what r u ueing for a rear fender, and how much did you lower the back with the rigid struts? What did you use to make your struts?

Love the XR in the back...first bike I ever worked on was a 76 and 78 XR350...vintage dirt rules

Lookin' Good !!

And you would have to have that XR in the pic, huh?! ( I miss mine )
My dirtbike has been sitting for more than a few months. I finally got a trailer hitch on my Jeep, so I'm hoping I'll have the KLX out soon!

Got Dirt?

well i just got the swingarm off a few min. ago, what a pain!!!! anyway im in the process of striping the paint off of it so i can paint it. still waiting on the driveshaft from ccspinner, when i get it i'll throw the rear end back on and probably start on the fork seals, also im polishing the fork ends . i think im going to order my 18" apehangers and my cables friday.

I'd like to see the polished fork ends when you're done. Mine needs seals and fluid change and I was thinking of polishing them as well, or powder coating. So post up some pics when you do it.

Lookin good so far!
