That looks great, Ive been looking for something similar, low budget bike to take exploring and to just get back out on a bike. What size are those tires? Any clearance issues with them?

Awesome.

That little Zuke was probably real sure footed on all the dirt and gravel with that tire combo.

I never converted anything. I just rode them where ever I wanted.

My little 700s took me down plenty of dirt roads. So did my friends GPZ1100..

The front is a 120/70-17
Rear is a 140/80-17
Both fit,but VERY close!!!.
Beware that any bike going up the Dalton will never be the same!!.You will be finding Dalton Dirt for years to come.




This is one of many car washes we visted.I had to do some repairs on the GS so we washed her ( Dora the purple explora ) so I could fix her.

I remember trail riding my NightHawk S. Best bike I ever had, nobody told me that you needed a special bike and tires to offroad with...so I just rode the bike I had down any trail or gravel road there was. Guess that's kind of been my theme. I ride whatever bike I have at the time. I road my first century on a Mt Bike because nobody told me you needed skinny tires to ride a century.

I know, that's where I keep seeing them and it makes me want to build one. Fortunately for my wallet I live in the middle of Orlando and have no place to really ride one...lol.
