Did some work on the subframe, mostly small tube work and a few gussets.
Bent and welded a cradle for the rotopax. I also bought a Rotopax mount but I figured this would be more secure and will mount to the back of the pannier hoops that I have yet to build. I bought the rotopax that was close to the size of the Wolfman saddlebags so it will tuck in right behind. I figure it will be about the same width as the exhaust on the right side. It's 5052 0.080" aluminum I bent, cut the 45 degree miters and welded. I'll secure the tank with an Ancra cam buckle.
Sent the CAD drawing to my waterjet guy and dropped off the 3/16" plate I got from my buddy free as a drop. Should have them back next week and can tack them in pace to drop the shock in.
We're not out here to rough it. We're here to smooth it. Things are rough enough in town.
