Re: 5mm rear ride height spacer

good points indeed. it comes down to personal feel i suppose? i actually like mine with the 6mm spacer and the blade forks because it tips it on its nose. that probably comes from my background in supermoto racing with bikes that steered like lightning lol :eek2 . plus at ten stone soaking wet i fin...

Re: Project Varatrackerstorm or Firetrackerdero.

or if you want the spoked wheel look. a rear hub outa something like a KTM 620/640, they are pretty wide and get it laced upto a 19" rear motox cross rim?. those older KTM hubs will more than take the abuse.plus im near sure a lot of them run the same size rear axle as a storm.
