so right now as it sits, I have to final weld the frame head, swingarm. then I will mock up the lower rails on the frame. one everything looks right, I will finish weld the frame rails, then connect everything.

 

Phase two of the frame fab happens after that..

new drum brake assemblies order this week.

pulled the rear mono-link and corresponding frame section. re-using this section on my new frame.

Gotta get the front and rear ride height nailed down, need this back end to get the back half of the frame figured out.

Snuck up to the shop this morning. Squared up the front and back, then burned everything together.

Now Im back to mocking up the frame with the rear swingarm installed, and the front beam dressed with wheels. Once I sort any issues out with that Gonna drop the motor in and create the motor mounts. there are a ton of little additions to the frame that will be made once the big issues are sorted out.

seems I never re-posted the swingarm modification. to fit a 15" car tire, I needed to run a v-max rear wheel. Shaft drive pinion spline is the same, however the hub width was wider than the 16" venture rear wheel. After some thought, it was easier to bump out the swing arm than mess with the vmax rear wheel.
