Man that's a great project you going. Looking forward to watching your build progress, and what ideas you come up with. Nice looking tail tail section.jordandogtown said:I took a few minutes to work on a (very) rough mockup for the subframe rails. I'll be attaching them in the same manner as the stock, and adding in a few more gussets, so I think they'll be plenty strong enough. Tubing is 1" x 0.125" - same diameter as the frame but a lot thicker. I have a tendency to overbuild, but the rails will be hidden by the seat anyway.
I want to give the bike an extremely slight "stinkbug" stance, with the rear just barely higher than the front. Right now, the bottom frame rail is 2.5o in relation to the table top. This mock up has the new sub frame at the same angle. I'm hoping if I get the frame in the right places, I can adjust the suspension to fine tune the stance
I had to get a sense of the bike with the wheel and seat in place, although this is a pretty pitiful attempt. The bottom of the seat pan will sit on top of the subframe rails, so it's about 1.25" higher than it should be, and needs to be trimmed at the white line, and who knows if the wheel is where it should be - but it was fun and definitely got my wheels turning
Note: a bike on a table is so much better than a bike on the floor. I've been missing out
That table your working on ...man I need that. Work on ground level kicks your butt for sure.
I've got a 78 " 750 F 3 in the shed just waiting for the right motivation to start.
I'm just toying around with a 82. CB 650 SC " Nighthawk " barn find for my winter project..about a 1000 miles on it. Was too nice to Cafe out or Brat .
