What fro, dude? Those are brand new original escorts shocks that used to come on the RD. As for tires, the rear Dumlop 100/90 is just about an average tire. But i have found that running a MRF zapper in reverse direction (its a uni-direction tire), but with a line or two at the center thread, (like it comes on the 90/90 size) works awesome.

Thanks guys, and Take Care,
Bikram

Nice build and commitment Brut,

However please do change the title as this bike is looking far from scrap.

Jasber's doe'nst work there anymore. He opened up a small dairy farm with a few cattle he had, near mullapur. I went to him over there once looking for parts, and seems like he still had a lot of spares lying around.
As for selling my bike, i really dont know. It depends on what i am offered. I do have enough spares do have no problems for atleast the next 10 yrs, so its not like i really want to get rid of it.

I promised a few more pictures, and here they are. I also clicked a few pictures of all the parts i could find at the time. i have stuff like another set of cylinder barrels and another single silencer and crank(and lots more stuff used within the engine). The problem is that the bike is standing in my village in Muktsar and thats where i clicked the pictures now, but a lot of stuff is still lying back at my house in Chandigarh.
Sorry for the naked wires hanging about. That happened because i was so sick of the swiss wiring loom that i decided to make custom wiring. Besides, i had been using an home-made electronic ignition on it for quite some time before i decided to go original.
