Rear sets thus far

I’m almost done with the rearsets I am making and thought I would give you all a sneak peek.

I commend your efforts but can only imagine how uncomfortable itíll make the riding position?!

Hey Desert, nice work and like you I also looked at those 2 opposing mounting holes on the frame and that Triumph may have intended them for a rear set setup.

So I have bolted up race pegs on either side and found that the distance between the seat and the pegs may perhaps be too short.

What are your thoughts?

I like your design for the plates, unlimited positioning.

T-rider,

The holes are for passenger pegs on the Speedmaster (same frame) which is where I got the inspiration for my plates. I drilled around the plate for styling but discover I could also adjust the position, eyeball engineering at it’s finest! The pegs are ~ 15 inches below the seat and they feel good with the clip-on bars thus far.

Mike J,

Comfort is not much of a factor with this type of riding position. This machine handle so well I wanted to see how it would do on the track.

I see, that makes more sense, although I suspect youíll have to revise the position/shape of the seat also... otherwise youíll end up with a squeaky voice!

Joking aside, at 6ft.4Ē thereís just no way on earth Iíd manage to get my 36Ē leg tucked away in that position... not unless I sat on the fuel tank!

None the less itíll be interesting to see the final result and Iím keen to learn about how you get along out on track

Mike J,

Fortunately for me my genes are from the Shire at 5’ 6’ 🤣😂😂.
