What happened to the old motor? After reading about the blasting media remaining on the head after it was already installed, I was like ummmmmmm...
Good call on the 205 motor. Did you do any maintenance on it before you installed it?

How did you do the conversion on the front brakes to your st185? Install a bracket? Great build sweet choice of the st205 upgrade.

Well the 185 motor the crankshaft froze up nothing we did caused this it was from things the old owner did :shrug: and that blasting media we were able to get it out completely.

for the 205 brakes we put on we grinded down the hub and caliper itself no brackets. shaved the rotors down a little so they are smaller. let me find all the measurements they are somewhere on one of the posts in the brake upgrade posts i will be updating this project tonight with new pictures lots of updates and adding a new project thread form 185 no. 2
