ProjectVF: Frame Modifications to
The entire head-bearing portion of the frame needs
to be cut away. As shown on the model, a large monoshock is supported by an
arched tube which spans the two sides of the frame. It's going to look crude compared to the original frame, but most of it will
be hidden beneath stylish bodywork.
Unfortunately, the monoshock concept didn't seem to
work very well, and the arched tube was a little too difficult to fabricate.
For now I'm using a piece of 1" x 1-1/2" rectangular tubing to support a
pair of coilover shocks. It's ugly but ought to work fine.
