I Was down on Dartmoor a few weeks ago - but not on this bugger - will have to get this thing back together over the winter - its not going to be till next spring before all the works done, the powder coating and paintwork etc etc - then figuring out how to pay for it all. But if the invites there well it may be a few beers down your local in the not so distant future. Jake.

Of course... I'll have to get the tank sorted by then and we can have a jaunt over the moors! Can't wait to see the next batch of photos!

I have shimmed them off the bike on the workbech to take up manufacturing tolerence differences but the tolerences were very close anyway but once shimmed they are set for just about good so I believe as there is no place for movement or misadjustment in the uprights unlike the old system where there was a room for a bit of movement as you tightened them down. They also reduce tappet noise a bit more thann the original set up.

at last a couple more of the swing arm Its still needs the bracing between the extended arm and the new left side in front of the tyre but at last the swing arm mounts are in place - so here in this first one you see a rear view of the shocks mounted in place everything is still just tacked and not fully welded as we were checking for full movement of the swing arm with the shocks in place making sure the shocks did not move into any extremes of movement during the full compression etc. from a line taken as neutral from the line of the gearbox we have achieved 13 degree of shaft drop below that line and 11 degrees above this gives a total movement arc amounting to 230mm for the back wheel. we we could have gone for 14 degrees and achieved 240mm but this does push the UJ to its limits. You can see that in comparison to the HPN photo earlier the shocks run virtually in an equal offset top to bottom with equal splay from head to bottom - however the left one is still offset by 1 degree due to the nature of the swing arm, the only way to correct that would mean offsetting the top mount out by 10mm at the top this would not have sat right on the top frame. The bottom of the right mount is an offset shaped mount on the side of the tube of the driveshaft. (the mounting bolts etc are all temporary so to long at the moment)

Here we get a side view of the right hand shock mounting, its quite a substantial mount made from 3mm steel to be welded all round onto the shaft tube (currently tacked). as mentioned earlier the mount is offset to achieve more equal suspension geometry. I have had the bike off the stand and it seems to move well with me sat on it. so initial set up appears right.

A slightly more close up of the right hand mount it actually looks good in reality but maybe does not come across so well in this picture. I hope that rob can get the swing arm back in the jig and all welded up next week.

here is one with the 2 into 2 exhaust pushed into place so we can start to determine exhaust hanger positions - as its not supported its hanging a little lower than it will actually be when finished as it will sweep up at the rear a bit more.

Awesome stuff adv950!
Can you please post up a couple of pics of the LHS.
Are you fitting a disc brake & caliper to the LHS- it would be a relatively easy task compared to what you've already done & would visually soak up a lot of assymetry.

Edit- just gone back & saw the pics on the last page- carry on as you were...

Hi Padmei, no wont be going for a disc conversion it just gets to complex I am going to keep the bike a simple as I can (believe it or not) and I have never had a problem with the back drum brake before (my other gs had the HPN brake conversion - different cam etc but this one has the much wider brake shoes as fitted to the earlier models so the drum should be quite effective - cheers for the comments anyway. Once I get all the other bracing and welding done the rear end will be immensely strong set up.

well the swing arm has been welded up and the box section added to form a large structural cross - member, this will be hole sawed top to bottom and three tubes two outer ones larger and a small central one welded through to give a three hole type look through the box taking away some of the slabness and hopefully a nice look, then the whole lot needs to be linished and the welds dressed back to a pre powder coat finish. the swing arm is immensely strong without being overweight.

this is from the other side the main tube welds have been cleaned up so you cant really see the join where the 100mm extension was added, the other welds will be cleaned up a lot more also.
