I think these types of projects are cool, and it looks like you did a decent job with the work. Self-done, or did you have a framebuilder install the disc tab? Decals came out nice as well. Good work.

My $.02 on that build: Get yourself some 'cross-style chainguides as that chain will fall off every chance it gets, and lose that fork.

Looks like there might be a lexan plate on the outside. Would still use some kind of chainguide though...

Cable routing is very....swoopy....

Great resto, rebuild, custom job! :thumbsup:

Jump Stop

Thanks for the feedback. All work was self done. I installed a jump stop from N-Gear since I have had good luck with these in the past. I couldn't agree more about the fork and it will be the first thing I upgrade on it. It was one of the "parts on hand" since it came off an SS build I did a few years ago. At least it's a Dart 3 and I put a softer spring in it to make it a little more supple. Plus, the remote lockout is a plus. Once I am able to test it out and make sure the frame integrity is still intact with the disk conversion, I will upgrade the fork.
