2 questions for/about Superblings bike...

The frame sliders, what type are they? They appear to be mounted into the "trellis" part of the frame higher and more forward of were the S&W kit puts them (which I like personally )


Also on the spools on the swing arm, they are below it, did someone tig them in place, or tig mounts on the arm for them.

Thanks. Those are two things on my "need to do soon" list.

Hmm, well I guess I should address these questions. LOL

A previous owner mounted them in that location and simply drilled holes and bolted a set on. I later added gsxr1000 sliders as they were about the longest I could find, looks be damned, as I wanted them to work as good as possible if I ever needed them.

Same for the spools. Welded on. Any welding shop worth their salt should be able to do it. My first VTR didn't have them and I used extra rubber grips on my rear wheel stand which worked OK but spools are much better.

BTW, are you going to buy the risers? I haven't heard from you since your original post.
