I'm doing a rear bike engine conversion & wanted to know roughly what length shocks(coilovers) to order. The brackets to support them have yet to be fabricated so really all I need to know is what length works best. Any help greatly appreciated!

mine are 13" fully open , you will find you can only get short shocks in the rear unless you fabricate your frame to suit longer shocks first.

O.k cheers for the advice. I'm watching your project very closly as i'm about to start a very similar one. I've a carb'd blackbird engine & a rear frame for it.

good choice of engine , loads of torque and very driveable, not to mention scary when you open the throttle !
