got the front end swapped

well i got the kx85 front end moved on to the crf100.
everything went smooth and everything seems to work.
now i need to get out and ride it to see what it feels like and how much difference the disk brakes make...
of course now i need to decide if i am going to leave the bridgstone slick on the front that came with it, or if I am going to pull the dunlop slick off of the honda rim and move it over... and i need to get a new front fender as the old honda fender will not mount...but at least it is ready to go play

well when i got thru i was all sweaty and hungry so i came in and took a shower and had a snack... i ordered new plastics and a new race rotor for the brakes...
i will go out later and get some pics as she now is.

now i need to decide if i am going to go ahead and get the head work done, or do the last two races as it and get it done in the off season for next year....

the only thing i have done to the motor is put in a yoshimura 115 kit and a 26mm carb... thinking of having the head work done then dyno tune it... i want to stay in the TMGP f7 class and i have already spent too much money on it...
the new plastics should be in next week and then it will be black...

no, i took the whole kx85 front end, tripple tree and all...
got a stem made at tk race products that fit the kx tripple to the honda...and got new bearings, it went pretty smooth... just remove the honda front end, knock out the existing bearing races, put in the new bearing races and slide in the tripple tree, then mount the forks.... now i have disk brakes on the front and suspension that is set to my fat .
