Does anyone have any photos of their bug with 40mm wide fronts and rears...

    Either a single or twin port - not too fussed on that part. Doesn't need to be complete as such, as wanting this as a spare rebuild/learn project for myself this winter... No end float would be ideal, and not seized, or anything else that could cause problems down the line. It will be a spare...
