Hobbit sub-frame dimension question

Would anyone happen to know what the dimensions are for the Hobbit sub-frame? Specifically, I'm wondering whether or not the non-drive-side mounts are in parallel, and what the offset between the front drive-side and rear drive side mounts may be.

the bottom holes for the motor mount line up straight across and the top holes for the trany and brake plate line up across. every thing else is wonky. (Sitting on the seat)- the engine is shifted to the right 1" then back to the left 3/8" in back. 4 5/8" spread. i have each side with all the dimensions if you need anything specific.

3/8" is the offset shhh! (edited)

Re: Hobbit sub-frame dimension question

yeah its a mess.

Scootertrash, I would be interested in your specs. CAD time! (edited)

Mars, I have a Hobbit subframe you can have if you want to figure it out. All I ask is a deal on the beefy monster subframe you create.

Re: Hobbit sub-frame dimension question

Oh cool that would be easier than having to take apart my daily rider to spec things up.

I was talking to Adam 'ecsuspect' about getting the actual mounting plates waterjetted, sorting out a basic design for the structure, then basically saying to people, "here, buy these plates and weld them up like this", but maybe it would be a good way to make a few extra bucks by welding them all up as a whole thing.

a legit and affordable sub-frame would be a god send to all rippin hobbits

that'd be rad, 3/8 aluminum!!

i'll send the specs this one Martian.

Re: Hobbit sub-frame dimension question

that thing looks burly as fuck

Re: Hobbit sub-frame dimension question

couldint you guys run vespa wheels / gearboxes?

taller ratio no?

Re: Hobbit sub-frame dimension question

I will personally test any subframe that you make on my hobbit.

Re: Hobbit sub-frame dimension question

don't drop that on your toe...

It looks like it takes 5mph off the top speed.

say what you want, but i guarantee its better than the stock tin can piece of shit going around a turn at 55mph. plus it looks better.

How about a 6061-T6 billet Hobbit swinger?

Re: Hobbit sub-frame dimension question

yeah i have some reinforcement plates that i made, but the swingarm i used to prototype them was all taco'd to fuck and back. haven't had time to get another subframe stripped and redesign them with the correct dimensions.

thad be about $150 in material. 24" x 14" x 3/8". martian, go over there and hack some out of one of them boats. leave a note that it went to a good cause. :)

yeah, some back up plates and angle iron rails goes a long way.

man, if someone starts making custom subframes that can fit an intake and lets say... mikuni vm18..

so far in 2012 you have that new mlm pipe, that new rear contra spring mod, trickmetric dio reeds adapter, indigan seat... wow.

makes me so glad i got a hobbit as my first/only moped.

We (myself and Trebek) got one in the works. Be sure to keep us in the loops on any subframe tech collaboration

Re: Hobbit sub-frame dimension question

try it on this set up

DR

Dio

24 oko with power jet

notched variator

shitty leovince circuit

Re: Hobbit sub-frame dimension question

Vespa wheels dont work, theyre driven the other way.

its mopeds dude, you can do any fuckin thing you want. :D

check this rigid shit!

Re: Hobbit sub-frame dimension question

whoa, mounted backwards. rad.
