i am building a custom TW for my missus.

i showed my welder friend how i did the swingarm extensions, i was going to drop it off to him for the weekend to do but had the afternoon spare so did it myself

took less than an hour to cut it and re-fit it together, he is welding it for me now. then just some filler/bog and jobs a good un!

ive seen a few way to do it posted here but think this has to be the quickest and easiest, only using 1 swingarm too.

I have done them two different ways, that is one. With a 7" it will sit high in the back unless the shock or spring is addressed. What is your plan ??

jersey jeepe, the tubing is 1" x 1" and is a tight fit inside the swing arm section, i notched the top and bottom so they are actually pretty flush, just need to fill the sides.

Dougdoty, the last one i did was 5", i will firm up the spring so there wont be any sag, the ride height wont be far off standing height.

i have cut the back part of the frame off at the seat fixings so its going to be a single seater bike.

just did all the filling today so will update soon..

i have just about finished the bike, just waiting for the paint to dry on the speedo and connect the back brake.

this bike has been built out of parts i've accumulated over the years, i bought a parts bike and had what i wanted and was going to bin the rest, after a talk with a new friend that has a welder i decided to build my last custom TW, and give it to the missus, she has yet to learn how to ride a clutch bike so until then...its mine!!
we decided to cut the rotten bit off at the seat mounts, we then cut the seat off on my chop saw and it became a single seater just like that, i extended the swing arm 7", (i'd done 5&6' already)

this engine had a n issue, i have posted here before about it but never resolved it, just swapped out with the one in the parts bike, i had a new type CDI, side case and flywheel so when i saw a matching harness and magneto i bought it, i dint know if it would work but couldnt see any reason why it wouldnt..it did, so this is drum model engine disc model electrics

i would say its a good option for people with older TW's with CDI issues, the later ones are much more reliable and the harness has less plugs and is neater.

all i've had to buy for this build is, tyres, wiring harness, magneto, sprockets & chain, rear light and had the custom seat made.

i made the battery box and the rear splash guard and light bracket form some 1mm stainless, the clear top coat ran on the tank in some places but i'm not up to speed with the spray gun settings....but all in all it turned out ok...the missus is very happy.....and i have managed to clear some drawers of crap!!

Very well done build, I see many fine details.
Shouldn't the swing arm be longer though?:rolleyes:
