I'm not intentionally pissing on you're parade, but how did that steering damper work out fitted to the lower fork tube? I wouldn't have thought very well as one end'll move up&down with the fork tube whilst the other end will stay fixed. Just wondering if I got it wrong?

Outfit, it really worked well with the weak front springs, but I had the same concerns.

Got a little more done on the links and should have pic after some more work tomorrow. My wife's back pain put off our trip to the Llano eagle nest.

The links are on the Goose minus caliper mounts, fender and threading the pivot bolts. Here is a left and right pic as promised.

Acquired a 9/16"x12 die to thread the shortened 350 Honda swing arm bolts. I was able to use the collars and bushings, for my pivots, that go with these bolts and will change the grease Zerks.

Seriously impressed here. I can see a job well done as well.
What did you use for the pipe bit at the triple trees?
Oh and the pivots. Any pics of the bits involved?
I wonder what sort of engineering hoops I would have to pass through here in Oz? You need permits for any sort of mods as far as I know here.
Cheer Bruce.

Bruce, I used an extra set of stock fork tubes that started to show rust and I cut the stock CB350 Honda bushings from the swing arm and welded them to the bottom of the tubes. The only info I used to design was posted in this forum in the Auzzi builds by looking at all the search results for "leading links". There are no other pic's as this happened over the weekend.

Cool

Really starting to shape up. Work and a set of tubes is what has me stalled on a similar project , actually one 36 MM tube is what I am looking for. Will be following to see how the spring rates work out.

I got around to mounting the calipers, damper and a fender.





I then took it out for a 30 mile test run. The spring rate seems about right but will try it with one click of preload next time. I do need to make a 1/8" adjustment to move the calipers out to take pressure off the outside pad.

Other than those small changes I'm real happy with the way it handles.

Just got back from a very short ride down the block and she said it might not be too safe for her neck if her head moved around as much as it did without a helmet. She has so little neck strength anyways. She commented on how much smoother it was than she thought it would be.
