I'm about to acquire a Profloater frame. I haven't seen it yet but I know it's in pieces with no shock or bushings.The shock shouldn't be much of a problem but what about the bushings? Are they available or are they a common size?. Pictures to follow as soon as I pick it up. Thanx in advance :thumbsup:

Hoov you slippery so and so! Mantis.. now your talking.

The bushings on mine were an impregnated bronze type material. They didn't come out very easy, so I would double check that you are actually missing anything. To today's eye, it's a really spartan set up that may lead you to think there's something missing.

Newer rear end and a ti spring on the shock. Post a pic of what the pivot on the frame looks like and I can tell you if you need bushings. Unless they changed, it's not a bushing in the usual sense, and they may very well be there. I think the bolts may have been tailor made to bottom out so as to prevent overtightening of the swing arm. I know on my mine, they had a very positive stop, and reefing on them more had zero impact on bushing preload.
