How To Build A Motorcycle From The Frame To A Road Worthy Bike!

Here is a sample from the our new mini bike building course called, How To Build A Motorcycle (we shortened and edited it for simplicity on this page):

Since building a motorcycle frame requires plans in most cases and it is a little bit technical, we will start off this course assuming you have a motorcycle frame. Let's begin...

One of the very first things to consider are what kind of motorcycle forks to use. Some are gorgeous, some just do the job. The most common type of forks are:

  • Girders 
  • Springers 
  • Hydraulic

As you learn how to build a motorcycle you'll shop for forks. And most modern factory produced motorcycles will have these motorcycle forks. In hydraulic forks one single closed unit contains both the shock and spring. This means that you aren't able to actually see the spring.

When choosing a hydraulic shock you must ensure that you get the right kind for the type of motorcycle you are building. The forks need to be compatible in length for the overall set up of your motorbike.

Motorcycle and chopper forks come in various lengths. But how do you know which length will work on your bike? The easiest way to figure this out is to measure. Fit the rear wheel and block the bike up to the height you want (riding height). And then at this point measure the space that you motorcycle forks will be fitting into.

Side Bar: You should first have the wheels and tires you're going to use on your bike.

Here is a basic overview of what we are talking about here:
