View Full Version : Sissy bar

Building a tall sissy bar for my Hardtail .Having issues getting it to look even and centered due to the frame being offset almost an inch for chain clearance .Is this common on most triumph hardtails ? Puts my fender off center .

The hardtail was put on the bike previously if I run straight edge down the backbone should the axle plates be even on both sides?I switched out the stock 16 inch wheel to a stock hub 18 and relaced it I've read a wheel can be shifted too one side with the spokes? I checked that the rear wheel runs inline with the front and the sprockets line up .Should I just make an offset sissy bar and live with it ? The way the wheel sits now the brake hub almost touches the frame can't go over anymore .looks like it's about a 3/4 shift off center in the hardtail but like I said everything lines up otherwise .

Wheel, fender and Sissybar should be centered on the backbone. Add a kickout over the chain. Or offset the one side more than the other.
