Build Diary Fri Apr 15, 2011 Part 5

the 4 front arms built (but not finished in these shots)

Here is a shot of the front hub adaptor I have built for the suzuki swift front hub to convert it to double a arm suspension geometry - My aim is to keep the specialised parts to an absolute minimum hence the adaptors! anyway this is what it looks like (note a rather rusty looking front hub assembly still to be cleaned and painted)

the lower rose joint plate needs a strength webbing adding to the bottom yet but were almost there.

Front Suspension mounted

And another shot of the front suspension -
