Getting started on my Honda/Scout project
I am building a Honda Passport/ Fly Scout hybrid using a 1982 Honda frame and a 1981 Honda front fork. I am still looking for a Honda swingarm. The Chinese metal, welding and geometry will not work for me. The build quality is terrible.
See the large gap on the scout forks were the two halfs come together. That made it too big to turn in the bracket that goes around the top portion of the forks...so the Chinese took a hammer and beat the hell out of it to give it some clearance. It was still rubbing. Thats exactly the way it looked when I took it apart. That is a 1981 Passport fork next to it.
The steering stem was drilled off center. Not much metal on the thin side...
Not much weld holding the steering stem to the forks compared to the Honda fork. The Honda fork is noticeably heavier than the Chinese fork. And I haven't got to the frame yet.
