    Does anyone think if i machined some brass bushings for the swingarm that would work pretty good or would i have to go with bearings? Maybe some type of harder plastic like nylatron? I have brass laying around. We use brass as bushings for slow speed gear shafts in valves and what not seems to last awhile.

    Alot of us use Delrin swingarm bushings.

    A couple of people here offer them for sale. I bought one set and machined my own second set on my 86R

    Post number 4 from shortline is the best or spend the coin for a bolt on aftermarket kit or just get a 250r/350x. Machine shop or no, theres No sense in chopping up a perfectly good hard tail frame when you have so many other options.

    Thats definately in the works when i find the right 250 or 350 within a few hours from me for now i really want to have suspension on this bike its going to be a rider and its my first 3 wheeler i would like to keep it and be able to ride it without beating my back up to bad. Not to mention i just enjoy working on stuff will give me a project until i find the next project and i will have a trike to ride while working on the 250 or 350 project. If i find a good aftermarket kit that would be nice so i can use it as a pattern to get dimensions from so i can build a few kits for anybody interested.

    Also i have a 200e i think it is for a parts motor would i be able to use the bottom end so i could have electric start if i could figure out a place for battery and how to wire it? Really dont like the hi/lo handle but i will deal with it for electric start.

    I will def be on the lookout for the right deal dont want to pay 2000 for one or have to drive out of state to get one. I want a fixer upper somthing i will.be proud of when im done with it. Im hooked i dont think there is any getting out of it for me i enjoy being the oddball i rarely see any around here anymore. Im a pretty damn good machinist and pretty decent at fab work i think i could produce a quality product that performs pretty good might be a little trial and error but thats all part of the game. I look forward to starting a build for everybody to follow this really is a great site i just have to figure out how to post pics
