Default New project

My son desided to make some improvements on a 87 El Tigre. He has a newer rear suspension that he combined with the older outboard shock style but he is using adjustable rear fox shock on the rear. so he can adjust ride hieght and tension. We are not sure if it will have a stock 800 or 1000 or a 200hp 900. We have the motor mount made now we have to figure out what pipes we need to fit. That will probably tell use what motor we will use there isn't much room under the headlight for a large dia. pipe. He also has a reverse setup he might use.

Custom, originally started out as Decker, made to fit an 88 Wildcat.
