Default Dual Suspension 'Roo'

[IMG][/IMG]Dual Suspension 'Roo'.
Today my new 'Roo Print' motor is to be posted from 'Screaming Roo'.
This motor is said to come with all the best 'bits', and have an Australian assembled Computer balanced Crank Shaft.
I felt it deserved a nice bike, I was going to put it in my Goat, and see how it compares to the motor I built for it. I may well still try it out in the Goat, but I've been looking for a suitable Dual suspension bike to mount it in.
I've realized that I will have to build my own as I can't afford to get a flash new 'Top End' bike and I can't find anything secondhand that looks like what I want.
Besides by making my own I can negate the need of a shift kit by repositioning the swing arm pivot.
I picked up a duel suspension girls bike a while back not suitable for mounting a motor, but I could see potential in the parts.
Here's a mock up of the bike to get an idea of what frame dimensions I'm looking for in a donor bike.
Tomorrow I will head into the City and see what I can find.
Looks like I'm wanting a fairly standard medium sized mountain bike similar to my old Mongoose. I cut up an old Apollo a while back that would have been close.
