Rigid Rear End

Does anyone know if there are rigid struts that would fit an 86 750? I'm thinking of turning it into a hard tail. I've heard some people say you can use shorter springs for a harley on there any idea which ones.

It's easy to make your own. Just get some 1"sq tubing cut at the ride height you want and drill holes in the ends the dia. of the shock studs. That way your not out much money, if ride is not what your butt likes. Then if you like the ride, you could make or have someone make a spiffier set out of Aluminum or stainless steel.

You can find shorter or longer shocks for just about anything, all you need to do is find the length you want, and the end style you need.

85 VN750 basketcase ( yes its a true 750, and no smog controls, its good to be Canadian)
It will have
a rebuilt 96 top end, rebuilt 85 bottom end
degoated, Eared
stripped, lowered, raked, bobbed,
reed valve boxes shaved
ported and polished
balanced
right side dump exhaust
heads and cylinders shaved for compression
looking for smoothbore sidedraft carbs
possibly fat bob tanks
modified vn800 or sportster drag pipes or I'll just make some
