Ya cann't go wrong with spokes.I agree about the leafer if there's to much rake or up stretch.

a better pic of the rear motor mount through the seatpost . moves the seatpost back some. and took motor out today to work on the bottom rails was way easier to get out didnt even have to take the plates off the motor just tilted front up and out it came should be easier to get back in after paint also got front mounts made and installed now everything except bottom rails and axl plates tacked in i need to finish shapeing the axl plates fit the lower wishbone and fit the lower rails hopeing to have everything tacked together this weekend so i can get it out and finish weld everything

i was haveing difficulties locating the lower rails because of the lower motormount i couldnt get in the jig with the motor on the frame to get measurements dam motor too wide spent a couple weeks lookin for a stock frame to make a motor mount jig and came up empty. after finding the thread on frame jigs i saw someones post on a triumph and realized i could do that i have the motor .so i made a jig off the motor so i could make a jig to replace the motor but let me work arround it it worked perfect i already had the front and rear mounts in place so i only needed to place the lowers should be more progress now

no sorry been swamped at work booted the old lady to the curb had to put the dog down been just general hell i have started welding everything together but havent had time to post i think at the moment i just have to finish shape the axl plates and weld them in then the frame will be done . i got the frame all tacked real good while it was in the jig then pulled it out and welded everything i did leave the motor jig in just to make sure it wasnt moveing arround then i poped it back in the jig so i can get the axl plates in and lined up properly more soon i hope
