    I got a fun one for ya. I just grabbed the axles out of my bin of parts from my 83’ XS HS. I hard tailed it. It’s got 1/4” axel plates. What do I have? What do I need?

    The longer one isn't an axle, it's a swingarm pivot bolt. The shorter one is a front axle.

    lol you guys are too funny. I sent 5twins a message explaining how all my parts are in bins and/or missing from moving, after the bike has been stripped…so I got nothing to look at and compare lol. And thank you!

    Hi staf0s,
    now that you've been told what parts your hardtail should have, you will need to find a competent chiropractor to fix up the damage your spine will get while riding it..
