lowered my bike hahaha



because im cheap and work at a machine shop i decided to make my own lowering suspension today at work

i think i made it a little too low, took it for a ride, the tire rubs the fender well

tommorow ill add .75" to the dog bones and level off the front end so it dosent look like a chopper
oh and my stand is usless, when i put the kick stand down it makes the bike lean the other way, time to make a new one!

lets see some pics when you raise it the .75"

when i first saw the pic, it looked really weird. i look at it again, and it looks pretty nice.

It is EXTREMELY unsafe to lower a bike!!!

you'll see what I mean when you take it for your first ride. Make sure you wear body armour, trust me.

I can't imagine how scary it would get if a bike ran out of suspension travel while under heavy lateral force.

Have fun.

You just screwed up all the geometry of the bike...Might as well go buy a chopper beause this will never handle like a sports bike...
