<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I've seen an old skooler with a 96/97/98/99 swingarm on it...I don't know how much machining was needed. The bearings on the 97 forks are a different size because of the aluminum steer tube on the triple clamp...it is a bigger diameter than the steel steer on the 85-95's...you'll just have to make one of the bearing races larger on the head of the frame.Originally posted by GetafixOz:
