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?

Lookin' Good !! :beerchug:

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?

rear fender is a 7" wide trailer fender. the bike is a 94 xr 250L, i love it!! never selling it. i took 2 pieces of steel and welded together to double the thickness. i lowered the rear 3in.

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! ;)

well nothing new on the bike today, heres the story... i woke up this morning w/ my boss on the phone saying "hey! wake up" so i immediatly say "O SH*T! im late! ill be there in a few!" when he says "no its 6 in the morning" then i'm thinkin wtf is my boss callin me so early for. he tells me about this tool box on the net thats a killer deal, so i got up and emailed the guy, got a phone number and well... went and got it after work.

its 17 drawers total, the top and bottom dont really go together but it isnt too far off so it works okay. paid 400 bux and it was only 25 miles from me. o and btw my boss loaned me the 400 bux for it :) my boss is pretty cool lol

Hell of a deal on a pair of Snap-on boxes. :smiley_th
I'll say! If you bought them from Snap-Off, you'd probably have to pay, what, at least $2,000??
