started the Battery rack




built the support for the pivot point of the swingarm,,right now it's not welded in place, it is butted inside and i can put it in place or take it out to build the swigarm and check the fit

i did some work over the christmas period

I had to switch my coil spring shock for an air shock as my leverage ratio is to low for the springs that i have in stock...works good now

this is a very unique build Tart, you have a real talent for some artful insight into this design. have you any idea how fast or how far you will be able to travel on that amazing battery set up you have ?
