Decided to hack up my Triumph rear hoop and see if i could make it fit this old, bates tt style seat I had. I have always really liked this Triumph called the Grasshopper. It's a green Triumph pre unit with a bates tt seat, but the rear loop had been bent up into a sissybar/ passenger back rest. It's just a real nice touch and i wanted to elaborate on the idea. The frame for my bike is very narrow, and the rear loop really is alot wider then i would like. The tire has to travel up and down with the singarm, and at the same time, not bottom out on the underside of your seat, as well as not hitting things like your battery box and oil bag. I'm sure i will run into these problems down the road but for now, i just wanted to focus on making my frame fit my seat. I went at the rear shock mounts with a torch, melted the brazing away and separated the top loop from the downward support struts, that hold my swingarm in place. I need my swingarm to land through the same holes in the frame as well as line up with the two outer support struts. The top of the shocks land on these, as well as the passenger foot peg mounts.
