Had a good idea :Freebie rear big boy shock

Recommended Posts

So i have a crf70 and im 250+ lbs but we all like to have fun on a little bike right? I was on my winter vacation from college and i was looking at an old gs850 and i had a crazy idea. Long story short, it has 2 rear shocks and i found that they are only a few inches longer than factory shocks and hold alot more weight, why pay over 100$ when you can make a junk yard warrior? Took some musscle to get it in but i sit taller and dont bottom out

Thanks for the junkyard tip. I like to spend time in the junkyard for entertainment. Unfortunately, I don't have any motorcycle junkyards nearby (that I'm aware of).

Keep an eye on the swingarm bolt and the swingarm where the shock attaches. These are weak points which you are bound to uncover sooner than if a rider of the intended size were using this bike.
