dirt floor build

My '76 Convert has acquired a attachment that I'll be able to load my wife in her wheel chair and take a ride. It's a long way from being finished but I was able to take the first test ride today. I found that the goose needs shocks with stiffer springs on the rear and a change in the front forks but it can be ridden.

I built a sub frame that attaches to the front motor and center stand mounts.



Here are pics after first ride.





I'm thinking of building my own leading link forks if I can find the right tubing.

Thanks to all the builds here I was lead to build my first hack and am looking forward to going the rest of the way.

If I remember correct the wheel track is 45" with 10 1/4" lead and the width of the top frame is 30 1/4". The floor deck is 48" before the nose is added.

Here's a shot of the subframe mounted on bike. I used the same type brackets on the opposite motor and center stand mounts except longer so that I could bolt through and into the 1/2" plug welded nuts inside the 1" sq. tube. There are also plug welded nuts in both the front and back ends of this to attach the car frame.

And another view (blurry)of swing arm from bottom.

Nice of you to do that for your wife. Hope you are going to put a gate on the back of that and a few tie down loops to keep her chair in there. A gate can work pretty good as a ramp too. Enjoy those rides together.

I was looking at your brakes and thinking that if you flipped the calipers and put mounts on the swing arm you could get rid of the linkage

I'm ahead of you by a year and a half. Not the best pic, but here's a crop and enlargement of a pic from Roll The Bones 3.

Very nice good to see the caliper has clearance with the shocks. when I start work I remember what bob my shop master use to say, KISS you will be glad you did. He was a big fan of the keep it simple stooped philosophy and his advice has served me well

You could always under mount the calipers, does cause a little problem with bleeding but not that big a deal then you have all kinds of room. Floating calipers are said to be better but I have not had any issues with mine that I have been running solid mount on the swing arm for 20 years and about 100,000 miles.

That's what I was thinking when I said swap the calipers to the other side. As for the floating calipers my Yamaha came from the factory with the rear caliper on the swing arm and the front calipers on the forks so if it is good enough for them it's good enough for me. I hope to get started on my set soon but I don't have a shop to work in right now so any work is difficult to do.

I like the feel of the fixed mount calipers, when breaking, over the rising I was getting with them floating. Now I just need to take the time to pull it down for a new top end.
At least I have my other rig to ride.

Cleatusj, are you sure you're not "Eugene" from Hillbilly Blood? The resemblance is uncanny!
