The bike that I built in this thread is no more and is disassembled with the hardtail removed. Hopefully it'll be on my jig and undergoing surgery once the weather stays above freezing.
Right on, what's on the agenda for this bike? different hardtail?

You dont happen to remember the swing arm bolt thread pitch/size, do you?

Off-road bike for adventure riding, which I recently got into. 10" of suspension travel and 12" of ground clearance. Should be a hoot with a Hammer 120hp conversion.

I don't, but I think I remember where they are and will try to remember to measure them.

also, if you still have your battery tray set up there I'd be interested in buying it if you want to get rid of it!
