Heres the arm for my next unit... Yamaha XT660R dirt leaner..
Its made from 32mm OD X 3mm stainless pipe..Has a 3:1 leaverage
ratio to the shock... " thats not the shock I will be useing"
The 17" wheel is from the rear of a Suzuki FXR150.. I replaced
the 17mm ID bearing with 3/4" ID.. biggest I could bore the wheel for...
The end of the shock conected to the frame will have a ride hight/leveling
adjuster of some type... not thought that far ahead yet... The arm
will pivit on bronze bushes...

Thank's Pete, I'm still stick welding and machining with a drill press plus an old small Atlas/Craftsman 6x18 lathe. I like to of forgot the angle grinder with cutoff wheels.

I make a little progress when my brain gives me something that seems to be an answer. The good thing is that often the idea works.

My first damper set up (horizontal) was way to weak, I've experimented a bit with different set Ups and now it's fine.

You may find that design for the single side swing arm is not rigid enough. We started with a similar idea but had to put in another rod to stiffen it up. You can see it below, the one from the botttom right angling back.
The shock is a Progressive from a Suzy Boulevard and designed to operate on that angle. If you use a normal shock, as it leans closer to horizontal you need a much stiffer spring rate.

I have been thinking about using an older 18" Honda wheel but it only would accept bearings for a 12mm axle. I decided to turn a disk of 3/4" steel to accept a 19.9mm axle and fit where the drum brake once resided. I will next turn an axle down to fit both size bearings and build a one sided swing arm.

HiHo, I have a heavy aluminium bodied fixed hack with a single sided swingarm that has held up very well to hard running.

Is that a square section you have used?
We used a 32nd pipe and found it had too much flex without the extra brace.
The leaners are a lot more fun though!

It's 1x4 solid but the leaner will really have to be something special to be more fun than my fixed as I'm able to run gravel a lot faster,in corners, with that rig than I can in a pickup and pull away from most cruisers in the corners on pavement.

I could be a little crazy.

I know it's been a while but I had to turn an axle and then find my die to cut threads and I'm not the fastest using a lathe but I did get it done.

Spent new years eve day welding the axle I turned into a swingarm and attaching to leaning sidecar frame. New years day I added a shock and fender support. Now I need to mount the fender and come up with a body or mold my own.

Here's where it sits now.

Got to give it a 50 mile test run with plenty of tight twists today and it was great. I did notice that I was slowing to 25-30 for 15 mph posted curves but that may change with time.

I made a few adjustments and added a fender and a 15" plywood deck until I can find or build a body. I want to keep the body to 16" or less in width so I can keep the 45+ deg. lean angle. Will post pic's tomorrow.

I decided to narrow and shorten an old pick-up tool box to use until I can find or build something with better looks. I do not own a brake so this was done the hard way but I think it will work for the time being.







I still need to sand, seal the seams and paint.

Bolted the body on this morning and gave it a 160 mile run with a 25-30 mph wind and had no surprises. Next I'll have to add lights and wiring.





This should be great to haul camping gear or groceries.

Looks great, Cleatus, you did a mighty fine job! Thanks for sharing the build, I've enjoyed it very much. Very nice workmanship on a very practical rig!

Just wondering what your maximum lean is towards the rig. Looks like this is limited by the narrow track, am I right?

I know that I need more lean on my leaner, I max-out on 60% of the turns I do....
