Default Baja Warrior rear shock mod?

Looking for some detailed info on installing/modding a Baja Warrior with a set of rear shocks. Even a unishock would work. Can anybody point me in the right direction? Thanks

A member named Delray over on oldminibikes.com did one. Best I've seen yet--and of course it's outfitted with a flathead Briggs.

Sure, just buy everything. Don't actually create and fabricate stuff to your own liking, nooooo. Don't Do It Yourself, Heaven's Nooo!

Some people just have a passion for fabrication.
Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't...

Yea, I blew a couple of discs out of my neck and had them replaced and I have at least one more to do. So until I get cleared by the doctor I can only lift 15 lbs. and no working in the shop.

It would be easier to get springs for the seat. Check out the 301cc mini bike build on YouTube from Red Beard's Garage.

Easier, sure. As cool, nope.

Sometimes life isn't all about easy.

Unless of course the OP does not have the means to fabricate.
