    Im going to go with Dakar heavy kit, instead of the BDS kit on my 77....any input on the dakar setup ??

    I love my BDS kit on my 77 except for the lean...very good ride.

    Its a april 1978 FJ40....one owner.
    drove it to work the last few days.....the gheto cruiser, its got tires from a honda civic on it...ha ha !!
    not to worry, I ordered up some 33x9.5's allready......122 each...great deal that discount is offering... ;)

    ha,
    thx for the birthday wish....I think.

    No, just stumbled on a great cruiser on the way home from a great MTB ride....

    and I thought all the one owner original were gone........

    Looks sweet, I would keep it unmolested... but hey, I didnt buy the thing you did. I like the brown.

    I like to see the one owners come around... I got mine from the orignal owner. I think you will find it is not a basket case... especially with the wiring.
