Default Re: Dual Suspension 'Roo'

I went back to Cairns yesterday and bought a n old GT Richochet for $100.
It has centerlock discs, nice rims and a reasonable set of front shocks.
Seems a nice old bike to strip, and I may have to put it back together with an old set of wheels and Vee brakes.
I have my knobbies mounted and swapped the gear set from 8 speed to a 7 speed with granny gear.
It looks as though mounting the sprocket on a rag joint will be easiest, and give me the clearance I need for the disc brake. However I will look into mounting the sprocket to the center lock.
There is a little more welding to do on the frame with engine and exhaust mounts, so far frame seems strong and I'm looking forward to my new engine arriving some time next week.
Will try and get a few more photos up this morning.
