Yeah, I know the triple tree is off a later model lol but the same applies to the old triple tree and I only had that triple tree at the time. So I used the alloy one. jimson

G'day John, back in the day they made a aluminum adapter plate to carry the guard. They look pretty cool and make the bike look period correct if that matters to you. I made one years ago from an old aluminum sign I found lying around.

To add to the gantry, I made this engine hoist leveler from a old jack I bought from the buy back scheme at the tip $5

John I'm not sure of the pipes performance ability as it was taken from a parts bike that appeared to be set up for enduro riding as it had a large after market tank as well. Davy sending the pipe to the UK would be expensive for you. I recently sent a pair of redback boots to Devon and it cost around  $70 I think. jimson

I had 2 big stuff ups making the gantry one was putting 4 swivel wheels on the gantry as it has no direction when pushing it. So I've bought 2 fixed wheels to go on, and my other stuff up was not realising the weight of the beam going across the top. I thought I could lift it higher with the help of a second person, but ended up putting car jacks either side with a spacer. The gantry has now got three hight settings. jimson

Thanks, and I'll have a go at making things until it becomes electrical. I'll give that a miss, cause I know I'll either burn it out or myself. Electronics is like a female, I don't understand how either work lol jimson

The I beam was bought from the buy back scheme at my local tip. The welds aren't pretty but they'll hold up, to what I need. I think lol jimson

G'day viewers, with Fat-Toy putting a few great projects up. I thought I'd post up my budget gantry I made for under  $500
The slide was made from conveyor chain I picked up from a job I was on. jimson
