Shock bolt failure

Although this happenedon my American Ironhorse Texas Chopper, the Big Dog K-9 also uses the 422 progressive shocks mounted in a similar configuration.

The video shows what happened when the rear mounting shock bolt sheared off on the freeway at about 65 miles an hour!

Naturally, you can see this on my YouTube channel but I always add additional photos and details directly on my blog. Here's a hyperlink for those who are interested: Motorcycle shock bolt snapping

Here is the link for video #2 about this shock bolt:

I keep looking for something to happening while you were going down the highway in the video , I just wasted 2.5 minutes watching a set of handlebars going down the road.

all i could see were two bikes going way too slow, taking up two lanes, and creating traffic issues.
