Ready to roll

Post by BobbaZooki » Tue Jun 16, 2009 8:29 pm

have been busy over these cold night's for the last few week's putting
together a sissybar & rack for the Mega Ride , the sissybar is made from a caravan annex awaring ajuster "bizzo's" , thick steel and already pressed flat at the end's , the rack was made from off cut's , but look's like a bought one, also added heavier spring's under the seat , and the
Velocette seat base (not in pic's) for a more "compy" fit on the bottom , the backpack came with the HD1200 and will double as a backrest on the trip , and it will hold everything I'll need to take , coz I like to travelle light . Next I'll change the risers from 6" down to 4" with shorter bar's ,coz since changing the spring's and seat , I've dropped it down 1/2 an inch ?? . A big thank's to Ray with his metal & welding skill's , a deadset brainiac with automeccaicca

Looks good. Now pack your gear and go for a 200 mile ride to see how it holds up to the roughness of the rigid... It's handy to hang a water bottle off the bag or bar for easy access.

Noice

Noice Bobba,
I have thought long and hard about a sissy bar on my yam but always decided it would look stupid with a solo seat !
Your's doesn't so maybe I'll try it.
But I would put it further forward just behind the seat to lean on and hang stuff off the back of it.
Of course my seat is higher because I have not cut the frame so it may still look stupid but if it means my arms aren't getting stretched it's worth it.
It's not about the Bling /:~)>
Well maybe a bit !
