    Can I assume you converted those two fuel cans as panniers? Pretty neat and inexpensive idea.

    YES, THEY ARE PLASTIC JERRY CANS,YOU CAN CHECK THEM IN THE TOPIC



    PVC RACK AND PLASTIC GAS CONTAINERS AS PANNIERS



    I USE THE PVC RACK DAILY FOR 4 MONTHS WITH ZERO PROBLEMS.

    NOW I SAVED SOME $ AND PUT HAPPY TRAILS FRONT & SIDE RACKS.

    I KEEP USING THE PANNIERS. I WILL INSTALL THE PVC RACK ON THE FAT CAT.

    AWESOME!!!!



    Okay, I now have a really bad headache from reading your CAPSLOCK writeup. Worth every throb.



    Question: You mentioned the BW forks being "lower" than the TW forks, but your bike does not appear to be sitting low in the front in the pictures. Do you mean the axle is lower in relation to the triple tree?



    Might I suggest the TW32 tread pattern would likely work better on the rear wheel and the TW34 would likely work better on the front. Function aside, those TW32s are old, and old tires often fail in spectacular fashion. A blowout on a front tire is much more dangerous than a blowout on a rear tire. Just for safety's sake, mount a new TW34 on the front and save the TW32 for the back. Genius like yours would surely be missed.

    THANKS.

    THE BW200 FORKS ARE LONGER BY 2 ", NO LOWER.

    I WILL USE TW32 REAR AND TW34 FRONT AS YOU SUGGEST. THANKS

    I went back and reread your part about the forks. Darn dyslexia makes it very hard for me to read ALL CAPS.



    I'm planning dual stock front disc and calipers on custom spacer/adapters and a TW34 tire, a slightly extended swingarm, and an ATV rear tire on a 12-inch aluminum trailer wheel with the stock front disc and caliper for a brake. All it takes is money, and all mine is going to pay off medical bills right now.

    This looks great. I am on my second TW and always liked the fat tire on the front idea. Starting looking into more seriuos as of late and I used some info from this post to undertake the project. I am going in a little different area with the brake, as I did'nt want the rear brake(smaller)on the front. So if you look at the drum brake model tw's the brake drum is bolted to the hub with a 3 bolt ring. This is the same on front and rear. I purchased an extra set of rims(front and rear) and removed the front brake hub from the wheel hub(spoke holes are evident)and bolted it on the rear rim. The rear hub sprocket flange has to be removed(alot of cutting and grinding) and hub trimmed with one bearing removed just like mmannddalla did. Also, I'm using the stock tw forks in the BW 200 triple tree so I drilled out the forks axle holes and front wheel brake hub hole to use the larger rear axle. The front axle is 15mm diameter while rear is 17mm. So not much material is removed for that, and then the front brake hub slips into front fork leg retainer without modification there. Also had to cut rear axle spacers to get wheel centered in forks(have to use rear stuff to fit axle). I'm still in work as I have to mount my Shinko tires front and back. I also am going to paint both rims black.

    Forgot to mention that the bw 200 triple tree and bearings are a bolt in but the one I have needs a mod on the steering stop to keep the fork leg from hitting the tank on one side.
