    that front end looks the dogs dangles scuba buddy , huge amount of carb clearance to on the front .
    now your going to need to drop that rear swing arm so you can squeeze in some knobbles on the rear tire lol, its gonna be just perfect for those woodland short cuts you take ;) .

    new name : Honda Cub-X (xtreme )

    Well i got an hour in today.
    Test fitted the light, the fender and made a cable to fit the domino throttle grip thing.
    Still a big to do list
    Next up is wheel building, it having one of those 18 inch rims laced to the cub hub.
    Also i need to buy/make some switchgear stuff

    Well the 18 inch rim has been taken off the rmx hub.
    Just the hard part now of fitting it to the cub hub.
    Also on the lookout for some cheap long rear shocks (400mm)

    Yeah, thats a ct90 or trail 90. They have a high/low gearing, with a huge rear sprocket. Rare bikes.

    drop those forks a bit!!!! there too long, but if you can slide em up in the stantions and maybe slope the bars back with some curved bar risers it might just sit about right, i converted the front of my first c90 but with waaay less impressive/quality forks LOL should deffo be fun!

    yeah, i will machine out the yokes, its stepped at the top...
    but the back will be raised too. and its getting a bigger rear rim.
    toying with a monoshock conversion, but not totally set on the idea as the vehicle licencing agency are really anal about any changes....

    i will probably machine the stanctions too to shorten them a bit, even with a 20mm drop i think it will be too high at the front...
    but will make the 18" rear wheel up and longer shocks first i think.
    unfortunatly my health is shite now and im unable to do anything, and the oxy is melting my brain....
