The Ford Rods work real well if done right. The bad part about them is doing a 10" or under..Unless you do a butt weld 3/4 up the leg and pin then warp 16 ga. and weld from the Ford rod to lower tree.
Been a long time since I done one....I made up press plates to make the slugs from 1.5" seemless .125 wall hydro tubing in any lenghs... Think I still have them somewhere put back....As far as both legs are the same extention..If you was going with big time rake ( 40 degree or more) would add to front leg a little to set the rocker out just a bit more..Dragstews,
Did you do the forks? Looks like the legs and the reinforcement are both extended, but the legs are extended a lot more. Right?
Here ya go. Rich says it was really a HA scooter.Kinda like to know more about the Fork that was on Jimmy Hinricks bike in the poster of the 60's....
It was done really nice.
I agree the Ford Rod don't have the OEM look that Harley had on them.The only thing I don't like about that style of extending forks is that the rear legs look a little bulky and you loose the detail of the reinforcement.
