Sprint 900 - custom project.
I'm just starting a project to build a custom bike based on a 1996 Sprint 900. Never done anything like this before, in fact only ever done basic servicing. Any suggestion/advice most welcome. I've been inspired by the projects by nkildiff and cavsp3. I'm planning a retro styled brat or cafe racer. Not sure what I have in my head falls into a specific category. Probably, as a newbie I should have used a kit such the CRK, but "in for a penny..."
My first specific question is what forks would slot into a Sprint without to much work. I've read that 900 Speed Triple forks would work?
This is a recent pic of the strip down. It doesn't really show in the pic, but the paint is in truly awful condition.
