Been waiting for some inspiration for what to do to mine, this is it! I've wondered for a while if lengthening the shocks would be hard on the university joint at the drive shaft (was considering doing this to a 700s nighthawk but decided against because of engine heating issues at low speed), given the increased angle between shaft/transmission for long periods of travel. I guess that one's been answered.
I grew up in the Ozarks, when a kid the family camped many times at Albert Pikein the Ouachitas. Got a twinge of nostalgia seeing those pics. Great build thread, can I PM you with a few questions?
