i wanted to raise the transmission up an inch and an eight to give the bike a little racier feel, Here is a picture that shows the reinforcement bar that links each side to each other and the groovy steel uprights that hold the back of the transmission where it is supposed to be. These look like gumby's legs
This is the last pic that I took of it before putting the motor in. I was surprised that the taper is so noticeable on the neck, but not as apparent on the tubes going into the axle plates. I think it is probably because of the difference in length of taper
and here it iswelded together and mostly finished up. I still had to do a bit of grinding to make it look a little more organic.distance in taper.
