That's a nice lift. Well worth the $$$.

Actually the legs just act as stabilizers, but they are strong enough to support the weight. The lift does all the work!

Hey Rick, looks like you got one bitchen ride in the works, ....good job on the econo lift!

You are gonna love that front-end, just keep a rag handy, cause people seem to drool alot when they are checkin it out
Hey I got a question, does Jay send the tubes for that Dragon already cut to length? since it's a kit and all......I bought mine directly from Amer. Susp. and they send the tubes out long, and you gotta determine the length and rocker angle yourself.
Also, what front break are you using? I went with the one A.S. sells (Padlock) and I am having some trouble with it.

Lookin' good......Have fun!

Padlock is what I used. Works great. i have the Dragon Springer on my Annihilator. You will have to cut tubes with a wet band saw preferably. I have not cut mine yet. I will be cutting about an inch. My gallery has a pic of the Padlock setup on my bike.

BTW..........neoinbiz ....(Rick, this will apply to you too)........judging from the above picture, It looks to me like your axle isn't seated correctly. The sleeve/spacer with a snap ring, that your brake bracket rides on, has an indent in one side for the thick part of the axle (where it rides in the rocker)
The axle should be allowed to grab more threads in your right side rocker, & the axle should be countersunk in the left rocker like this:


Thats about 1/4" more threads I would like to have if it were me

Oh, and check out my ustabee sweet wheel-matching rotor that the padlock caliper fucked up, (caliper "locked up" on the freeway) I checked my mastercylinder and flushed the line.....no prob, so it must be the caliper, this has happened three times,.....the last time, (on the freeway) the heat turned my rotor into a potatoe chip!
I am sending it back to A.S., Vince is working with me on the caliper, but wont cop to the caliper fuk'n up the rotor.

I have a HHI brake. My spacer has that groove milled into it right against the ring. Ive been wandering what it is there for. This was mentioned above in this thread. Is there suppose to be something that goes there? like a snap ring or wave washer or something or whats it there for?

Went to home depot and picked up a woodworkers vice to finish up my build platform. A total of $14.00 and it will work perfect as it only grabs the tire. This finishes my platform for a grand total of $219.00. Not bad!!!

This is the angle Iron to support the vice. Mounted it on a 45 degree angle and it was perfect!
