Looks like your shop has a lot of stuff we gudgetfreaks can jork off on

I cant believe that you machined that from steel....I would have started experimenting with a wood or plastic model, until it all fits together properly...but you definetely enjoed manufacturing process of this bit )))))))

I agree.
I would have normally made it out of Alum first. Faster to machine and normally cheaper. I had the stock sitting around and it's hard to tack weld Wood to a steel frame for test fitting.

I'm "normally" pretty good at this and I did have an Alum version from the Honda Frame mount to get some of the dimensions from. Earlier, you could see that I printed out some drawings and cut them out with scissors to mock it up on the frame. About 10x back and forth from the CAD/Printer/and cut-out and I was pretty close. At least close enough to make a 3-D part. Some times you just have to roll the dice and hope for the best.

Worst case I could weld it up and re-cut it.

My hunch is CJ'll get back to this writeup as time permits. Patience has its rewards.

From what I saw on the Weather Channel this morning he's probably trying to dig himself out of the snow. Wish it would snow like that here, it just got done snowing for 5 days and it didn't even completely cover the ground.

Sounds like what he needs is a two wheel drive 950.

I've been swamped around the home lately, and any free computer time has been spent researching our next adventure ride. The Holidays can be a busy time. I'll try and add more to this report soon. Sorry for the delay. There's more to come.

Ya, we've got about 4" on the ground now, not too bad. I'm still trying to track down an electrical draw on my bike that leaves me w/ a dead battery every couple days. So as soon as I get that worked out it will be out in the snow and maybe on the lakes too.

Thanks for hanging in there,
Craig
