But how to get it to stay in there and not do bad things like crack the frame? Well, I think this should work:


I gleaned (okay, stole) the idea from one of cabbie's builds. It solves the bracketing issue and the subframe issue with the same approach...
Shock brackets:




Subframe spars:




With RS tail for rough fitment:

Got the tail bolted at the top.


I can get to adjusters.



End result:



I will need quite few spacers, I know. But I already have alumin(i)um round stock on hand.

Also shaved a few pieces on front end...


I am installing the M-Unit and M-lock, so no need for original ignition mount.

Bottom yoke:



Et voila! Not perfect - but good enough for now:

Someone wanted to see the sub frame rendered in aluminum. Well, here it is (almost finished). These were rough cut with a band saw, jig saw, shaped with flapper wheels, a spindle sander, a 12" disc sander and an orbital sander. Holes were drilled with a drill press or a hand drill. So, basically, everything was done with basic tools and a LOT of time. Edit: All of the subframe/bracket parts are 1/2" alumin(i)um plate.

Raw finish:


Right side closeup:


Left side closeup:


That black line from the above image was relieved to make room to adjust the rear shock:


Seat supports (2 installed) clamped before drilling and tapping for M6 x 1.0 bolts:


Right side with tail on:




Mocking up the tray:


'Tray' in with tail on:



All work done with shop super's approval - as long as I watered him (it was 105* out).


Once the subframe/electrics have been finished, I have a local shop to weld up the tray and mill out some of the meat on the subframe rails. I might try that myself, but I REALLY don't want to screw that up and have to re-shape another frame spar.


So, progress has been slow, I know, but I WILL post up as I DW!!

Yeah, well. Life happens. New house. New job. Two small kids that the wife put her career on hold to start raising, so we're on one income. The project bike had to take a back seat for a while. I've had the damn thing since 2008, so maybe I'll finish on the 10 year anniversary?

You're still moving faster on yours than I am on mine... looking good.

It's a tour, not a race... but don't get in my way while I'm touring!
