Re: Doomed to Fail: The SteamRat Build!
Got the bolts needed for the rear upper plates. Also did a bunch more mockup. Right now engine is hanging on the rear 2 mounts, but it looks promising. Really need to get the blocks welded to the frame for the front lower, to take the stress off the upper rear which is bowing right now. But, step at a time.
So here's the mockups!
Chain alignment looks pretty good, based on where the marks are on the swingarm. Should have the cush drive here tomorrow or Friday to verify that.
Still need to find shorter shocks, the ones in the pic are too damn long. Even on the softest setting, I don't see those shocks letting the bike sag to the height I want.
