Suspension Test #1

I got the left side of the rear end welded it in place, as I am doing more of a standard 2 sided hard-tail rear end, but just making it look like the 1-sided style of the real batpod.

I also finished the shock mounts, and the connecting rod between the main frame pivot point bolt and the rear shock mount (the boomerang looking piece).  Once that was all done, it was time to put it together and test out the suspension, and roll it around.  It had awesome balance, and the suspension is pretty plush.  May need a stiffer shock now, or as the riders get older, we’ll see once I do some more tests.
