Wrapping up the 79 IT project. Man, what fun. It amazes me how much better the 79 handles compared to the 77/78, they look pretty much identical but the steeper fork angle and a bit more rear travel make for two different Bikes.

  • I turned the bike upside down cut the frame and put a turnbuckle between the 2 wheels and pulled an 11/4" for a steeper rake and won the overall at the Newark Enduro. lol it worked great in the woods sure headshook in the wide open. Talked do Drew Smith later and he did the same on Pe's and Xrs but when developing bikes for factories but they used jigs.
