I am having shocks built in three weeks,
and I am also going to fab up a pair of adjustable length struts.
This way I can run the bike either way to determine what handles best for the salt conditions,
and puts the most power down.

The shocks will be designed with a softer compression, and stiffer rebound,
and built according to the weight used.

The soft compression is easy on the rider (if salt is rough),
and quick/stiff rebound puts the traction back to use faster.
At least that's my theory.

Thanks for the interest grin grin grin

great project-your frame came out mint.

my friend 'east end' lee-[im in london] runs a 500cc JAWA in a replica norton featherbed frame with a czech built  seonara 6 speed box-at SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS-he was clocked at 148mph-in 5th gear-

good luck with your build,i think your choice of single cylinder engine could proove very wise-

You might look into Progressive 440 Shocks. They use an Edelbrock Patened I.A.S. dampening system. (Inertia Active System) it really works great and you can get several different springs as well. The I.A.S. is explained on their web site.

Hi Larry,
    I'm working with Tom Edison from Works Performance.
As soon as I finish filling out the spec sheet he sent,
they will build me shocks to suit all the bike's and rider's particulars.

Next on the list is the fiberglass, and I think I'm going with the Can-Am Fairing.

However, I have also been mulling over...
