Under the rear-most body to frame mount area...Any photos of this area in original condition will be greatly appreciated! I can patch these areas together from little pieces of sheet if necessary, but perhaps some "chunks" of patch can be located. Also, incorrect rear Hassler shocks will be removed a.s.a.p.Thanks! -ChrisVoid...

Same someone cut away that sub frame on your touring body. Guess they removed the body that way as the frame bolt was likely holding it on. :-) At least the rear cross member horn is intact.



Here are some pics to show the sub frame, just weld in new pieces to connect the U-channel section that was removed.


View from rear, right side of touring. (Black steel parts are rear bumper brackets).


View from front of rear cross member. (Wood block is correct factory part for fit between body and frame, bolt goes thru it. That added fabric anti-squeak pad is for leveling body on frame).

Thanks Dan! Looks like the wood block takes up all the space under the hat channel, there's no flat sheet metal "foot" or anything. A shot across the body with a side view of the sub frame would be awesome too, if it's possible. Not to be picky! I just figured it'd be worth askin'... Thanks again! -Chris, in Boulder

Chris

Don't have an underside view of a '26-'27 touring body, but these might help. The runabout body upside down is similar in subframe feature.
