    Ricky,

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

    [​IMG]

    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:feelgood


    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).

    thanks that bike is so awesome.

    I feel like I need to start on Pezz-T from the ground Up
