OK, OK, Ok... One more mock up, then the upper frame rails and upper control arm brackets, then mock again with steering, And will be on the ground at this point. Dec 30 is motorcycle swap meet, I'll be looking for twin shock and jack shaft sprockets, 3.5" and Harley 530 chain and Honda 520 chain AND...
To all of you my friends Thank You and Happy New Year... With all our trikes running in 2019

Thank you HRK, I was thinking of the heim joint over the brass bushing brace also. This is the way to go for my build, coil over and pull rod is just off center to the right and the swing arm brace left side will play host to the jack shaft mount, again guys this is still in mock up with all tack welding. Now notice the upper shock mount it was going to thick steel and brass bushing, Butt I decided a extra heim joint should do the job??? What do you guys think???

Damn, The lower swing arm bracket will hit the shock mount, back to the drawing board, I want to keep all pieces straight and level with the frame? Sooo, the shock will be centered with the swing arm bracket and I hope level, the two sets of pull rods will install beside the shock I HOPE, New drawings tomorrow and back to the machinist on Monday and he is cutting the 30 degree angles on the upper rails which will be ready for welding next week...

I try not to final paint anything until the fab is done. Here is another way to tackle that issue with 1/8 plate.
I put a small bend in at the bolt flange but you could use flat stock or square tube. Just make all the sides in cereal box paper. Then when you are satisfied, trace on to steel strip you can buy at Home Depot or Lowes. Cut using a hand held bandsaw with a 14tpi blade. Cuts like butter without all the noise of a circular saw. Bend the flanges in a vice with a hammer, debur with a carbide rotary file in a drill, angle grinder, bench grinder, etc.

A little higher at the top of the shock and one pull rod on the outside so I will add another...

I thought about that, but you said you wanted "all pieces straight and level with the frame". The motion ratio is not falling now too so a doubled improvement. :cheers:
