Here's a photo -- Hard to see, but the clearance between the gas tank side and the closest point on the axle is 13/16". The suspension is parallel leaf springs, but they are short (36") and robust -- At 950 pounds weight on the rear and a tire friction coefficient of 0.85 the maximun lateral load would be about 808 pounds. I am not sure how much this would move the axle sideways -- All opinions welcomed
