Very well could be, I've read that the 86 frame being the "strongest" of the bunch, albeit heavy. Hard to say.
And thanks, I agree! That purple was godawful.

Yeah I agree most definitely... She's had a frame swap at some point; not entirely surprising, the thing is a bastard child. Thanks man! Yeah I made my own gussets, didn't seem worth it to buy them.

What did you use for radiator hoses? Looking good by the way.

I honestly don't know, it's the same hoses that were on it. They look like they could be heater hose for an automotive application, I can look the next time I'm in my shop and let you know. Thanks!

I would like to add a coolant piss bottle, if anyone has any input for creative ways to do this I'd love to hear them.

Turned down the mutilated / incorrect seal diameters on the spocket / rotor hubs and spun out collars to bring it up to the correct diameter. Press fit at .002". No idea what this axle is out of but it's going to work lol.

New non-mutilated carrier and bearings. So pretty.

Well, shit got a little interesting after this last post. I was truckin' right along with the reassembly, went to install the new carrier and found it to be way bigger than the swing arm opening. Turns out it's a 3-wheeler swing arm. Naturally I discover this AFTER installing all new bearings into the swing arm and bolting it back onto the chassis. Grr.  To be continued...

On a positive note, I scored a set of pro-peg nerfs, an aluminum airbox with Uni filter and boot, an Alba aluminum gas cap, a Maier race hood, and a DuraBlue adjustable axle of craigslist.
