Project TTF2 rumbles back into life...
I needed a rear shock for a TTF2 project bike I’m building. But what to buy?
Bearing in mind this bike houses a prehistoric Ducati Pantah engine in a steel tube frame and sits on 18in wheels, was spending six or seven hundred quid-plus on a full spec race unit worth the money?
For this old-school race bike all I needed was the right stroke, eye-to-eye length, spring weight (350lb/in) and the right damping parameters to work with the non rising-rate shock linkage. Seeing as I’ve been waiting for nearly two years (!) for a friend to build me a shock as a ‘favour’ it has recently become evident that I’d actually have to dig deep and just buy one.
