If they would have run that upper link to the top of the frame, and lowered the axle end to follow the line of the frame, it might have sold better. The way it looks now, it looks scabbed on and unfinished.

Hey axman...look into the suspension geometry of John Britten's V1000. It is a more functional version of that 4-link shown above and an absolute trip to wrap your brain around.

The reasoning behind it allows allows more stability since the main mass of the bike travels perpendicular to the road surface throughout the suspension range rather than out of line like most.

Pinion angle? :rolleyes:

There was a Vincent cafe racer built in the 70s in the Toronto area that used 4 bar parallelogram rear suspension. Saw it at the Vintage club rally late 70s, still looking for picture of it.
