CFL cantilever seat shocks


Here's a new part we are working on with Choppershox. Just fishing for mean spirited digs on the design aesthetics, weight, or to let me know that it won't work (it does) because those remarks usually end up in new design ideas that help us out more than compliments ever could.

True Mike, the oil tank was actually on loose (and slid back a bit) and the pic makes it look closer to the rear tire then it is but... in this position it is only about 1/4 inch from the oil tank so we will be adjusting them to make the clearance closer to 1/2 inch in the (no weight) seat position and up to an inch when the shock is compressed.

I am thinking just under 200 bones for the bracket and bungs (this is a bolt on NOT weld on kit) but that is kinda dependent on Choppershox as I am hoping to have Dave do the marketing and I just sell him the metal at wholesale.

Yea Spin that's us but for CC I just wanted to focus on this piece.

Ebay is kinda quarky so you never know what is gonna happen there and if you do get a sale you never know how repeatable it is, plus there I am selling the whole thing as a bunch of prototype parts on a CFL and here I just want to see what criticisms people have of this one particular part.

thats a great looking piece IMO....i don't have that type of bike/seat, but i would think it would be well worth $200. Nice job Vision

For 200, yours would be worth considering

Looks good except the bottom part.
The long nut and flat part of the plate on the lower shock mount don't look right.
The rest looks pretty cool, mechanical style and shape are nice.

Never argue with a moron, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

I like my bikes to look ridden and my tools to look used.

Does that leave room for the battery?

Looks ok,but it has to have things like battery and fender,oil tank clearances
or it's no good.honestly i don't realy like all the pionty stuff.if you took all the
pointy shapes away you would gain a lot of clearance right there.price seems
great if you can get around those numbers.

I am not much on pointy stuff either... I would probably reshape and round off all the pointy things.

How does it hook to the seat?
I have a pan that already has tabs with holes in them as do many others.

What is it made of? Stainless?

I am also curious about the "bolt on" attachment, is that gonna stay put?

Excellent questions man I love CC for getting serious input and serious concerns!

#1 Too pointy? This sucker was designed pointy so it would fit with the Dragon style tank and fender. We are working now on "Hot Rod" style set that will look more classic and drilled out like it might belong on a T-Bucket with a tractor looking seat and a side drafting dished in gas tank and maybe a moon eyes oil tank. We will try to re-use the main design but just have a different set of plate metal cut with a more hot rod look in mind.

#2 Battery clearance? Yea that big old turnbuckle looking height adjuster looks like crap and sticks down too far (battery still fits but just barley) and that has been bothering me since day 1 but there was always bigger fish to fry so I think that gets attention next.

#3 Stainless? The current rig is made of mild steel because we were changing the design constantly and doing everything by hand. Prolly gonna get all the plate metal stuff cut from stainless plate in a big batch before we start selling em but that decision hasn't been made yet.

#4 Break off? I hope not. In the single shock set-up it is a non-issue but for the dual shocks this is part of the same area that I want to drain a few beers on (starrin and thinkin) and see if we can't come up with something that is more solid but less clunky looking.

Rake= Steering neck angle or if talking about triple trees it can mean added degrees of rake in the triple trees

Ahhh OK so the "rake" in the trees is actually the delta between the "rake" of the neck and the "rake" that the forks are angled at after coming out of those trees eh?
