The under side of the tripple tree. Under the cover in the center is where the turn signal cancel switch is located at. It runs down the center tube and connect here.

When building the ladder bar make sure you have the body on first to see where the rearend is center. I also took measurments from the center of the axle and outside of the axle to make sure it was square and not shifted. After everything is square I marked the jacks stands to make sure it don't move.
hello,just to ask what size are those rod ends.having only two at the front can the bars move sideways?nice looking job,

ade747,

The rod ends are 1/2inch and I tied them into the original place the swing arm came out of. I took the end caps that hold the original swing arm and drill a 1/2inch hole in the center. I placed a 1/2 extra hard bolt through it and welded on the inside and around the shaft of the bolt on the opposite side at the base. I then cut it off on the right side enought to clear the drive shaft. The finaltime I will put them back on I'll use lock nuts and lock thigt.

I have been working on the body again trying to get some primer on it and getting some undercoat put on the underside. I have spent all day Saturday on that and will start posting some more pictures within the next few days. Next is disasembling shocks, shock mounts,and placing the body on the frame to install to the existing bike frame. Due to how the body is made I can't assemble everything and then place the body over it all.

To answer the question on if the ladder bar would let the rearend slide from side to side the answer is no. With the two ladder bars comming back on each side and connecting to the rearend I have a 1" tube with rodend the connect directly across to tie the left side and rightside together. Then from the left side I have another tube that goes from theleft front to the right rear ladder bar. This keeps the rearend from shifting left to right and shifting. I'll go back over some of my pictures to see if I can post that part again

This picture shows the ladder bars and the two tubes that was describe. When setting this up you have to install both ladder bars but preload one side. By preloading one side is adjusted about 2" higher than the opposite side and then push down onto the bolt. This keeps pressure and the slack off. As seen in this photo the cross and diagonal tube keeps the rearend in place and stops any shifting from side ways or drifting. Hope this help answer that question

Thanks Lightin,

Hope you are doing well. I'm trying to fit mufflers and seeing where I can puthangersat. It's really getting compact under the body. I'm trying to work an hour or two after work to finish up alining the body to the frame and side covers. I still have to run brake lines, wiring harness, and extra support.
