I've not been doing anything big for a while. I've been playing with the front brakes and I'm getting all of the lines run, the line loc in place along with the adjustable proportioning valve. Bought one of those pretty chrome master cylinders and I'm waiting for more fittings to come from Speedway to finish off the front brakes.
I went to a swap meet Saturday and found a pair of wheelie bars/wheels.
I've been playing with making my own but these popped up for $10 so I grabbed them.
I bought a pair of Honda chrome spring/shock assemblies with intentions of using them like this. In the next pic you can see how the shock/spring bottom mount fit the wheelie bar mounts as if they were meant to be together.
So I threw a bolt onto the wheelie bar mount that'* already on the rearend and propped the Honda spring up against the rear frame crossbar. This makes it lean backwards and it'* not what I really had in mind.
I would rather extend/lengthen the bars farther rearward and then lean the spring forward.
Then I would run a cross bar between the two to keep them straight. I may not keep this but I thought I'd play with it.
