And so the quest for rear end travel begins!

A few basic measurements

got me here

Hmmm, not much to work with!
Gonna need a longer swingarm for a start!

No turning back!!

I m,easured afew other bikes and settled on a axle to axle length of 500 mm
Found a bit of 75mm x10 mm flat bar, lopped of a couple of bits, some rough and ready jigs

and I had this

k in the bike for some checking, all square, chain alignment spot on!
Tried every position I could

but all I'm ever going to get with that little shock stroke is 6and a half inches of wheel travel,so the hunt is on for longer shocks!
I live more in 5 minutes on my motorcycle than some people live in a lifetime...............
Where are my pants? Our farmers thank you!
