It is a fun setup to sort out. The simple of it, its about the same as replacing the stock shock mounts of a traditionally sprung dual shock bike's swingarm with downward tabs to lower the rear. If you want to have real fun try making the bones yourself. I made a 3" drop set thinking the rear would only go down three inches...NOPE, completely bottomed out with the rear fender sitting so firmly on the tire that it would not turn. The real shame of it was that the bike looked awesome....minor reworking bought a quarter inch with my but in the saddle, great she could move. Went for an quick spin and discovered the frame was dragging with almost no lean in turns....more heartbreak, again because the bike looked awesome but was still unrideable.
