    Not sure if anyone mentioned the suspenion changes...could put on a stout upper triple tree and maybe a fork brace. There was a brace that could be added to the swingarm that is very hard to see...not sure how much it did. If I can remember where I have it, there are a couple of articles that might provide some ideas for restomods.

    - Black-Tie Boxer by Joe Minton, Motorcyclist August 1984
    - King of the Boomers - http://www.omnilex.com/public/bmw78/kotb.pdf
    - a final chapter in one of the Clymer manuals

    Maybe someone can find these others on the web.

    I'm just starting my own airhead journey so take this advice for what it's worth. I think a little frame bracing would be required for a restomod. I will be sliding a 4130 tube into the backbone, rosette welded, and a triangular plate to tie the rear down legs to the backbone. And something up front to anchor the back bone.
