PostSubject: eye to clevis strut   Tue Oct 25, 2011 11:53 am

Hey, been lurking here for a while, finally getting started on my first bike- a 69 Honda CL175.

Looking to drop the back end and chuck in some struts but its an eye to clevis setup. I'm not having much luck finding eye to clevis struts online, and I suspect if I did they would still be longer than I require- about 170mm (bit over 6 1/2 inches).

It looks like I'm going to have to get some fabricated. Can anybody recommend someone to do this? I'm in Dunedin so the further south the better.

yeah custom i spose..
if you can find any eye to eye ones short enough, i would just get them modified (weld plates on the side for the clevis end..)

got any pics of it so far?

Shouldn't be too hard to make a set up. Give Jody a call.
