I do have a question..

If the airbox is not require anymore why do they keep the battery on the original place, that is kind of lamme don't you think..!?!?
And of course those carbs on not Bings either.
This bike is a real honey. Love the Akronts and the R90s looking front end.
I guess you could add that paint on a toaster tank. I feel a parts gathering coming on...

Frame Braces

Going thru old catalogs, Luftmeister's 1993 catalog shows frame braces that clamp in place - no welding, where as the 1997 CC catalog has weld in place braces. A CC set was just up on Ebay and went for $208. CC use to get $140 for steel and $199 for alloy. Luftmeister had a price of $109 each for their version.

Bolt-on frame braces?

Ricky,

Looking for bolt-on frame braces? My PD came with them when I bought it. Don't find them useful myself.



The ends with the studs (one of them is actually missing) replaces the clamps used for the PD roo-bar. The ends with the "hook" (one is broken, too) goes around the frame just above the swingarm pivot. Makes checking the oil a bitch. And I don't personally think that bolt-on braces is actually useful for frame stiffening. Just my $0.02 worth.....

Captain My Captain more than anything i'm looking for information, opinions, design option and thanks to you guys i'm learning a lot already


how about if the attachement plates were part of the Gussets (since i'm making the plates from scratch anyway) and the structural tubes are attach using high density urethane bushing for rigidity but also to prevent cracks on the frame like Jorge mension before...

I just want to explore every possible option before I start to weld on the frame, but i also agrre this "Exo-esqueletons" are not the best choice( they do look look) specially for a bike that is going to be taking apart more than usual.

thanks as usual, you never, ever fail.

Here's a photo of some I had made way back for my 4V bike. They act as part of the fairing bracket too.

Ricky,

For a look up close and personal at a braced airhead frame, go to Lanesplitter (in Berkeley). Peter Watson's old AHRMA airhead racebike (with braced frame and other mods) is above the front door. You may know Pete, he's a regular at the Wall, Zeitgeist, etc. (rides a black MV Brutale at the moment).
