It is not easy at all. The front is easy make a 4 inch strut top use a 4 1/2 inch square tube have it cut to 15 degree angles make some tops up if you dont posses a cutting torch and a welder good luck with that.

The rear is very sophisticated you have to drop both swing arms on the brat basically building a subframe then bolting the arms on it lower not so hard to do but hard to make.

I know Bill made a few (I bought one then sold one). I saw it installed and it worked great. I'm not sure if he's producing them anymore, but you can check or if Mike can do it snag one from him.
