Thanks. I got the front swing arms on last night,I'll have to take a few pics and upload them. No stainless, would be nice but way to much $$$$$. I have a Honda VLX 600 going in it. Not to radical right now, since my son will be driving it also.
OR maybe I'll have to build another one.and pit a real nasty motor in it..Yea thats what I'll do!!!!!!!

Just a few more pictures of my latest work. I got bored waiting for parts so I welded a few cross member bars on the front swing arms. I dont think they will serve any real support purpose so I ground the welds down flush so it will look continous. I think that when its all sand blasted and powder coated it will give it a pretty cool look. I still have to do the shock supports and greese fittings

bracing supports

I agree, they look good and I think for the minimal work may just prevent minor stress problems later on...

Is there any particular reason that they shouldn't be added? Tony?

for that minimal weight it is a plus to as u say stop any future problems as i think there is a weakness there in the right circumstances.after all the buggy does take a pounding.as u will see when u get going.happy building 8)

We fit a single flatbar gusset to that area & also fit a triangular gusset either side of the shock mount slug to spread the load across the tube.

Yes its heaps.
But when you weld on the shock mounts fit a triangular gusset either side of the mount.
So a total of 8 gussets required.

Yes thats the Edge brake kit. After looking at your pics then looking at mine it makes me want to make alot of changes. I think Im going to look for a diifferent radiator with an oil cooler and mount it up top for better air flow to start
