I’m starting a tracker build, picked up a 1983 cm450, it needs a bit of work. It’s already been converted into a cafe racer.

right now I’m having trouble figuring out exactly what to do
Let's see some pics of your project so we can get an idea of the situation.

The old would have the hazing already on full bore......but the new CR is more sensitive and tolerant and socially correct.

As far as suspensions and front ends are concerned there are swaps that can be made with minimal modification. Sometimes... Actually more of the time steering stems need to be shortened to be made to work for newer USD front ends. has a fork conversion page to help guide you with bearings, available front ends, etc......but the main thing is to visualize a look for your ride while all the while ensuring you are at best maintaining original performance and hopefully improving performance.

What's your riding experience?
