Jim,
I found some here:https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?LH_PrefLoc=3&LH_ItemCondition=3&_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=camry+motor+mount+shocks&_sacat=6000

But they don't appear to have any springs.  I need combined spring/shocks, as I don't have any suspension now and I plan to add a swingarm with the appropriate so-called "shocks".

Thanks again.

I am in the midst of conversion to single shock rear suspension which I have posted in the Tech section under Suspension.

The engineering and thought you put into your machine is extraordinary. Always learn something when I look over your bike.

This is what I did.  The arms were extended 3 inches using butt welds.  1/4 inch thick gusset plates were welded on each side for a total of four plates.  The vacant space in between the arms was boxed for strength.

Dennis,
I'll be doing something like that once everything is in place to check clearances.

By the way Dennis, I'm also building a 250 motor to run in the M Class at Loring, Maine.  Of course, if the motor is strong, it will bolt right into my A Class frame!  Photo is attached of the frame without the motor.

This is what I did.  The arms were extended 3 inches using butt welds.  1/4 inch thick gusset plates were welded on each side for a total of four plates.  The vacant space in between the arms was boxed for strength.

Bo,
Ditto the answer I gave to Dennis above.  Making sure the tire clears the spring, and making sure the swingarm clears the frame where I've cut it just behind the foot peg mounts.  Fitting a tube or shaped and boxed in plates inside the swingarm between the spring and the rear wheel would be most efficient.

Tom

Good work.................I'll be working on my Cub for 2018.............I made one run in 2016 at more than 90-mph but it started missing and slowed with no time for a recovery attempt.
