Theres gotta be some other way than throwing down 250 for a lowering kit, or making it a hardtail....is there some tricks to lowering the back fender down w/o spitting out that much money or making it into a hardtail?

shorter rear shocks, slide the forks up through the trees. Cheapest way to do it.

I just noticed you posted in my thread asking about it.... so to answer your question, yes, just put shorter shocks on it.

i built my struts for less than 15 bucks. i've seen lots of guys just use a big piece of metal and drill holes in each end. as long as they're the same distance apart on both struts, you should be good. that will let you take it as low as you want, and it's pretty cheap. there is a salvage yard in indianapolis that has always been very cheap, and they do ship. the place is called cycle recycle II. there is a cycle recycle also, but they're not nearly as good. they have a website, but i'm not sure what it is. just google it. everything from a salvage yard on ebay seems too expensive to me.

Try Grim Cycle Salvage in SLC too.
