Really nice welds!

Have you done any test ride with that new set up?

The welding is not done by me. I tried, but don't have the patience.

Welding isn't as easy as some people make it seem to be...

A little question...
Isn't the shock bolted upside down? Does that affect the work of the shock or is it something that souldn't be taken care at all?

This picture suggests I've done it right.

The preload adjuster is at the bottom on the LCs to enable users to actually access and change the setting.

That's a really nice touch and a great idea... One of all the clever solutions and the things that made the RD LC, and also the YPVS the great bikes as they are regarded by almost anyone that knows a little bit about the two wheels...

I agree that it was a good idea. Truth be told, though, it was just the way shocks were done back then. I don't think the top-side adjusters came into being until we started seeing remote reservoirs and the like. Even high-spec piggyback-reservoir shocks of the day had their spring preload adjusters at the bottom.

Limping forward.


Regulator position.



I need spacers for the front wheel, and bushings for the swingarm.
