I guess I didn't really clarify I know about th drop spindles and adjustable beams but I was wondering if anyone knows how to adjust the stock beam. My dad says it can be done. Let me know if you know thanks.

On the early type one there is dropped spindles and/or adding adjusters to you beam as a method of lowering the front of the car. There are other methods for a type 3 but no others for the early bugs.

I rode my friends and it was the same way, so much so that it scared the hell outa me trying to run it hard thru corners. Aparently you can get a shock off one of the more modern gsxr or busas. Hopefully its a hair longer to get some ride height. Because the bars wont allow you to lower the front end to make it handle. Shorter dog bones on the shock will raise the rear, but mostly I see long ones for lowering bikes.
