Yes, I would love to resto/mod it for you. I will hopefully have a few pics every day or so as school permits.

I have a bunch of cool ideas for a modern CRF.

I'm finding the VRM140 quite good value, works similar to the similar looking Dunlop 952 that is good around here, but 2/3 the price for better value.

LINK International - Vee Rubber Tyres and Tubes

For fronts, I'm pretty happy with the Mitas C17. But I'm off to the desert soon on the FE650 and will likely use a Mitas C20, a bigger tyre that looks good, but untested as yet by me. These have been cheap for me, and the C17 works and last well on the rocks around here.

Thanks for the tire info guys.

I run the big M5B on both the 650 and the CR500. I too run the Pirelli Scorpion. I really like the 80-100-21 XCMH which is also on the 650 and CR500.

But, like you said they are spendy.
Thanks from bushmechanic

Got a almost new Dunlop Geomax MX51FA Front that I took off the 2014 Husa. Maybe has 5 hours on it of light riding while breaking the bike in. Its yours if you want, just the shipping charge to you. Just thinking as you noted about budget cost.

I recommend Mitas 754 Sport Extrem in the back and Mitas C 19 Superlight in the front. Cost of a set is around 100.

Thanks for the offer FE. I am going to go for new tires.

ave to re-look at the Mitas tires.

However, I am leaning towards the Artrax.

This mechanical engineering school math is hurting my brain!

I was lucky to get out for a ride today on one of my none Berg rides and had a great time. Missed ya Oregon Trail!

My garage was a cluster F and it needed a serious over haul so I could have the room to really work on and store the finished pieces as I go along. I was able to get the last 25% finished after the ride and yard work...yes it is early spring here in southern Oregon.

Snapped a shot of the finished top fork clamp and 1-1/8" handle bar mounts. The paint is Stone Guard black it is textured and has a chip resistant finish.

Thanks from bushmechanic and Goose916
