Hi Anthony, I took the liberty of inserting the pictures for you. I went to the pictures and right clicked on them and selected copy image location and pasted them into your post. Highlight the complete location then select Img from the menu above where you compose your post. That's all there is to it. Pictures need to be on a sever that can be linked to. You can't upload pictures directly to the forum.

You can use the edit feature of your post to see how I did it.

Nice looking job on bending the tubes! It would be cool to see how the arms will attach to the bike. Are you trying to decide on which calipers to use? Nice looking ball joints too. Keep up the good work!

hi all
im using two 6 pots on the front with a vented disc, the 4 pots are possibly for the back wheel but i might be rethinking back wheel to go with a normal disc and one 4 pot stuck on it mounted on the outside as my original plan might be a fabrication nightmare?
the tubes are all welded up today now and im making the balljoint hangers and threaded inserts for rose joints this week? hopefully the next few weeks will deal with the front end and i can get to work on the cradle.
ill try putting some piccies on the weekend if i manage to skive off from domestic stuff.

Hi Moses,
Looking good.
What type of vented disk are you going to use on the front?
Did you build spacers to make the calipers wider to accommodate the thicker disk?
Thinking

hi all
iv just built the spacers for the 6 pots and had to space them out by 19mm wider 3/4" in imperial, i'v used ford escort xr3i vented disc which goes with the wheels iv used.
luckily the triumph 2 pot calipers as fitted to early triumphs fitted onto the normal disc on the sidecar wheel without spacing but i had to skim them down by 1mm.

best regards
anthony

Thats a good idea, I assume that the aluminum piece will get bolted to the modified rotor.

The rotor could be made "full floating"
