Hi guys , i picHi guys , i picked up a 78 XL75 frame with a street title (just frame & title , no swinger , triple or forks) what id like to do is turn it into a motard for my wife (5'0" , 100lbs) . So i guess my question is whats the cheapest easiest way to accomplish this ? Im mechanically inclined but not a fabricator . What are the differences between lets say a 2000 XR100 frame & the XL75 frame if i was to buy a donor (would this be the easiest route) ? Thanks in advance for any helpful thoughts .ked up a 78 XL75 frame with a street title (just frame & title , no swinger , triple or forks) what id like to do is turn it into a motard for my wife (5'0" , 100lbs) .

You could use the front end off the '00 XR100 frame. You would then need a swingarm, brake stay, brake rod, off an XL100 (79-85) or XR100 (81-84)..

I would just try and find a donor XL/XR twin shock bike and transfer the front and rear ends complete.

Starting out with these : frame w/ street doc's , 1984 XR100 swingarm , NOS Red Wing shocks , chain guide , & new swingarm bushings . I got to find somewhere to do some painting (leaning toward a yellow frame/swinger/brakestay , crazy ?) & im still on the search for a cheap donor XR/CRF100 . My buddy supposedly has a tank , seat & headlight from a late 70's mini Honda im going to try to barter on for some auto work he needs done depending on the condition . Sorry if the pics are huge or microscopic im computer illiterate .​

Im still in the process of finding a cheap donor XR/CRF100 bike locally as well as finding somewhere to paint the frame & swinger that has heat - leaning towards a bright yellow , crazy ? My buddy supposedly has a tank , seat , & headlight im going to try to barter for some auto work he needs done depending on the condition . Sorry if the pics are huge or microscopic , Im pretty much computer illiterate .
