I home built an adapter. A piece of 1.5 or 1.75" tube is basically the same size as the neck of the stock res so I cut a short piece of tube. Then I took a hole saw the same size as the tube and cut out a hole blank. I drilled the pilot hole out to larger then the -10 fitting size I was using and bought a weld on -10 fitting bung. I welded the bung to the piece of plate then I welded the slug into the piece of tube. Bingo, instant reservoir adapter and now I have a double capacity reservoir with the stock res and the PSC aftermarket res feeding it.

I can't wait to finally get it "done" and get it out and wheel it.

Might as well update this

Harley has too many kids and not enough time, so Nate and I decided to steal his buggy for a while and finish up what he started.

Harley's old coils rode like crap with no weight in the back, so he cut out everything and put in some air shocks after rebuilding them. Here is the best before picture I have with coils



The shocks were mounted on a straight tube and the shock angle was almost perpendicular to the floor. This limited his up travel even with wheel spacers. After looking at it for a while we decided to cut that tube out and design new shock mounts that inboarded them more for better up travel. I had recently bought bend tech, so I decided to put it to use and designed some mounts. Once we got the final design done I emailed my files over to Rob Bonney to have them cut on the CNC.







After we finished the new shock mounts it was time for bump stops which was originally all we really needed..... after lots of measurements and design changes this is what we came up with. Sent these files over to Rob Bonney as well to have them cut out











Here is the finished product all assembled!
