Ride height...

Post by Prof » Mon Sep 30, 2013 11:26 am

A topic worth some thought.

From your experience, what do you think is a good minimum ground to frame height for a rigid chopper, bearing in mind a CB750 and it's pipes are wider than a trumpy or xs650.

Minimum height of a chopper with rear suspension?

I owned a VT600c a few years ago, and that seat was LOW ! 27.5 inches (approx 70 cm) off the ground to the seat base. I'm not tall, by any comparison, but I could stand up at the lights, and there would be 4 inches between me and the seat. Factory everything. Cool riding position, suited me perfectly.
Reckon that would be cramped for a 6 foot person.

Well we dont have to worry about silent cops :roll: but speed humps have become a problem so 100-120 ml for a ridgid would be my guess and higher than my xs with swing arm maybe 125 ml to lowest point im at 100 and it dosnt even like rolled gutters or entry square on at servos
IM NOT CRAZY ITS JUST OTHER PEOPLES PERCEPTION OF MY NORMALITY THAT DIFFERS
