    I was having a hard time coming up with a name for this build but as we were at our favorite watering hole tonight I seen a beer tap with Attitude on it and said maybe need to fit that in the name and the wife ran with it and came up with the name for this build as it will be a dual purpose use build if I can pull it off hence the name (with the 2) Bad Atti2ude.. as the build goes on the dual purpose will be revealed.

    I love it when a build starts with a photo of some straight lengths of tubing.

    Fat rims and tires and a Bafang mid drive kit, ordering a battery today should of had it already but there not cheap.. this will have a tank (sort of so to speak) I have but will be revealed later it will be repurposed from a vintage household item:39: some sheet metal work will be done but first things first going to start laying out the frame this week and fork design. I have a feeling may end up will some scrap tubing by the time I'm done, got the chop saw and roller out so time to start cuttin

    been playing with fork ideas something out of the box that's not your normal springer not set on any one design yet... maybe holes maybe not maybe a custom design while still maintaining strength? I need to get the forks done as that will determine how close I can get the front downtube to tire looks like it will be in the 1-1/4 range though to follow curve of tire and to weld to headtube.
    need to get some bigger brake rotors also front will be dual brake setup.
    Forgot to mention this will be another bare metal build.

    messed around with back also.. Mega drop out piece :crazy: thinking out side the box again, nothing set in stone yet as I am sure it will change some, holes or design in this also? will shrink to probably the sharpie line maybe more when the actual tubes are laid out just cuttin cardboard and laying tape lines right now. nothing probably makes sense yet where I am heading with this but it will, at least I hope :21:

    always end up with some flat on each end so cut those off and rough mockup wrapped around the back no idea right now where it will be cut in back yet, got it nailed so I thought but I am going to have to redo as I slightly over rolled it and it drives me nuts already not the same distance all the way around tire but it will at least give me the visual for now.
