Almost finished the Rear Sets, Started to design on monday, so it took a shitload of time. at least by designing firts and then fabricating then was a big time saver, i learned to first think then grind, saves lots of time and raw material, i used brass bushing from a starter, i just could use a ball bearing but i had those from my Ford starter so i just used what i had. Still not finished, i need to keep filling and kill all those square borders on the lever, and some form correction to the main plate.

Hope you guys like it!

If someone wants to use the design, i can send the cad file!

How close it the fender to the tire? The center looks like it has enough for growth, the sides where it tapers looks like it could shave.

You'll find the rear controls will be more positioned down pedal wise. Rather than flat like the mids or up like forwards. Prolly not set up yet though, right?

Howdy Jaws! Yes, there's enough clearance, at least with this fucked up, old, petrified and deformed tire, that has almost no centered part (it was on a bike for about 20 years, so the part that remained on the floor for 20 years makes a funny S and then it goes straight again, i don't know how to explain this. the sides are tight, i think ill have to shave a little off the fender or open it up a little and make it a little wider.
Funny thing about this tire it took me about an hour to put in on the rim haha the tube was impossible to fit, and i punctured the tube when fucking hammering that fucker to make it go in the rim, but without air still holding the bike weight and mine no more flats (?)
And yes, you are right about the rear sets, but that was the only way i could put a vise grip(is not a vise grip is like an U with a screw to adjust things together, don't know the name in english, tried to google it but had no luck this time) to stick it to the bike and take the photo, but.. now i realize that pedal not gonna work, i think ill just have to make a "rod" also more easy to set up in any position the lever goes! So... Thanks again man!

I think the word you're looking for is C-clamp, and I too am enjoying your work. Thanks for posting

I took some pictures for you, JAWS, i checked again and theres a reasonable amount of free space fro growth and the sides are OK, even with this fucked up tire it doesn't grind at all.

Well, finally i could attach the rearsets to the bike, i need to file down all the borders and polish everything, but i need to move on to other stuff, i did the rearsets because based on the legs position stops me from doing the exhaust, which im doing tomorrow, gonna use a cocktail shaker/triumph muffler almost side by side with the engine. lets see what happens!

Hope to finish this bike before october 8(yeah i know im fucked up), there's gonna be a big classic car show, bikes and swap meet, its the biggest show in latin american, and i want to sell this bike as now I am unemployed and my wife too, so... i need to buy some plane tickets to move from this shit hole and search for a better life somewhere else!

btw, the bike is not comfortable at all ha!
