  • Per Mark BEX ...

    I am currently redesigning the rear wheel swingarm, and using the Honda engine donor rear wheel assembly for it, for good reason.

    The rear wheel assembly bolts on to a flat surface with 4 x bolts, see picture, drawing of the car's rear beam axle showing the flat mounting plate, and a rear wheel bearing. I will laser my own mounting plate of course.

    This allows the use of shims to adjust the rear wheel alignment much easier than what I had built on the prototype, now simple adjustment can be made for tracking and tilt.

      I've had a few days of silly errors, wrong measurements, got some files mixed up and lasered some wrong bits, happens every now and then, so I also took the time last night to go through a bunch of files, and trim off the excess.

      So the swingarm is done, came up very well indeed, when I got the right files together that is. Easy to make, and reasonably neat looking, not that it's something that will be seen, or that you want to see.

      Because the swingarm needs something to swing off, I also did the rear bulkhead.

      • You can't see any difference from the last rear bulkhead picture on Friday, but it is completely revamped, including new laser cut bulkhead, resetting of the rear rollbar angles, and resetting of the main chassis lower rails' angles.

        Happy now, and what you can see extra is the 2 swingarm pivot mounts.

        • The swingarm has turned out quite nicely, easy to build with minimal common materials, and self jigging for welding.

          Importantly, fully and easily adjustable for tracking and camber.

              Fuel tank should be 8 US gallons with the piping.

              Setting up the rear suspension, made the upper and lower bushes that attach to the strut, and last thing lasered the brackets to attach it to the frame, which i shall attempt tomorrow
