Front End Assembly

I used off-the-shelf shoulder bolts ($5 each) and bronze bushings ($3 each) and two high-deflection ball joints ($35 each) to form the double-A-arm / floating headstock which is characteristic of the Hossack design. There are 4 smaller ball joints for the steering links ($14 each)
It's pretty amazing to me that I can build a proper Hossack FE for under $200 for all the materials and bearings.
I seem to have lost all the pictures of building the A-Arms on the jig table. Cutting the fishmouths in the mill was pretty cool too, but lost those as well, sorry.
