Custom Forward Controls - '70TR6R

This is a pic of the set of Forward Controls I made.

I have the plans on CAD or DXF format FREE to anyone who wants them.

Note: To construct them, you, or whoever builds a set, will have to have knowledge in blueprint reading, detail layout, machining, welding and have access to good quality steel or stainless stock.

They were designed by me and were drawn to fit my '70 Triumph TR6R. I am 6'-1" tall and with a hardtail and low seat, I needed a set for my long legs. They fit me just right. I cannot guarantee the design will fit your leg length without altering the length and/or the angle of the Motor Mounting Plates.

If you are interested in a set, e-mail me (holbs at yahoo.com) and I'll get a file of your choice off to you.

Just my way of thanking everyone for the help I've received here.

Looks well costructed, but the brake pedel should be redisigned to provide more leverage.
A mechanical brake operates on the same principle as a bolt cutter "multiplied leverage" on the stock bike the pedal is say, 12 inches long and the lever attached that pulls the rod is 3 inches. 1 pound of pressure on the pedal results into 4 pounds of pull on the brake rod.
With thjs set-up, the rod is attached just under the pedal resulting in almost no mechanical advantage, To get the same amount of pressure at the brake shoes you would have to exert almost 4 times more pressure at the pedal.
By designing in more leverage into the pedal you are rewarded with a much better rear brake.
