TopCat, what did you do to extend you fork tubes, or where did you find them off what other bike? At 6'11" my issue is the riding space as defined by the seat and pegs. Bars can be swapped around easy too.

On my other bikes I have built up the seat and lowered pegs or both, however have left the 80SG all stock as much as possible. Guess I should get a spare seat as a donor and have that built up. Adding 2" or more to the seat thickness when possible is a huge help.

Those shocks from partsnmore look like a good option! A guy might do a bit better on a used set of Showa's but it takes some patience to find a pair that looks really good.
