    Things are still apart, but I'm hoping to make some good progress on the frame this weekend.

    I did have a recent "win" making some custom slip-on flanges for my upcoming stainless exhaust build. I machined them out of some SS pipe I had laying around at work. They are basically copies of the ones on the stock headers, but without the holes for the plug welds.

    Made some pretty good progress today! the swingarm is all fitted and tacked together now. I just need to weld on the brackets for the shock mounts. There are 6 of them since I am using a linkage, but It's gonna be a roller pretty soon!

    Finally got all the rear suspension brackets fitted, and installed the sachs rear shock and linkage! Im thinking about raising the rear shock slightly to increase the rake, but im really stoked on how it turned out!

    Don't mind me in here just to spy on your build. Looks great! I love the amount of work you put in to the rear swing.

    the beauty of this install type is that it transfers all the brilliant engineering honda did on the suspension

    and tegh weight of the bikes are pretty close so itt may not even need a spring change and if it does it

    will be to a lighter spring

    it my favorite way of mono shocking i have also done some cx's with a yamaha r6 shock and linkage

    Great build and I'm watching this with interest. As a complete newbie to this you have asked some of the questions I needed to ask but using the right language so as not to sound like a complete numpty
