Yep those look really good.

My mate has just bought them. I want a set for my Brat too. You can use modern shocks with this set up.
Make sure you match the shocks up well as this will determine how well it goes.

Add some good wheels with a harder compound fronts to the rear as it's a very short wheel base. Add a little caster ( Frog has adj castor) to slow the steering down a little and it will be jumping along very well.

Post some pic's please.
