    A postive note is tires are so ridiculously low cost that it isnt a killer to build with 17's (using a stock ct90 rear wheel and the CR80 front) and later swap to 18s. Although a CB360 wheel is 1.60x18 and has disc provisions. Bet I could get it to roll with the short CR forks.

    I had a plan of using old sl100 forks (31mm vs 27mm on s90) the length wasn't far off and yz85 (small wheel) 17" front rim with a disc. Its very near fit from disk to the fork tube and naturally the SL fork doesn't have brackets for the caliper.
    you can see it here:

    and I didn't get an email - knowing how caferacer.net database runs I will get the email in 2016 so email email me at kerosene350 at gmail

    The tank is a good deal - peeps on ebay as as much for just the rubbers

    I will be contacting you crazypj. This is looking like it might come together nicely in a few months of part scrounging

    Sent you a pm crazypj.

    Looks like I may be running 17s. If I run a cb360 front wheel it will be .2 wider than my rear Plus I can pretty much roll a CR fork and wheel setup under the frame if I go 17's. Guess I could lace the 360 front rim to an S90 rear hub and lace my rear rim to the cb360 front hub.

    Further edit.... I have found the CMX250C front wheel to be an 1.85x18" rim. The forks are 33mm. Just have to see about the height issue. Quite possibly too tall. But it may work out. The rim also has 36 holes like a stock s90, so it may be possible to lace the slightly wider rim to the rear hub (if the spokes are compatible).

    I want to keep this thing as light as possible without spending crazy money as well.

    I have a few s90 tanks and misc parts, the tanks are rough but $10. + shipping and I would clean them out on the inside first. The leading link forks are from a c200 or ct90 probably, might be worth a few bucks on e-bay ? I'm with you on building a small bike, I'm working on a '64 c200.

    Btw raven - if you are interested in making a stroker... You need atc 125 crank or modify your own crank. And you need a cylinder spacer + atc125 length cam chain and tensioner. I have those too

    I was really working on the bike but had it stolen. - my fancy home over complicated muffler is left over too - but not quite finished.
