No worries. Thanks for thinking about me. Not really wanting new & in no hurry. I will find some old chopper pieces....

This is the pile I'm working on. "Spare Parts Scrambler". I have some 15" shocks coming & when I find fork tubes I will make a new lower shock mount to increase the rear susp. travel. Just want a fun "junk" bike to beat around on...
