    Okay, the grimmrod is almost ready for sandblasting, and the customerwork is a little slow, so it's time for a brand new project.
    Laced up a pair of polished 100mm rims, rear with a nexus 3sp coasterbrake.
    Started the offset fork today, and here's the progress:

    It still has a good 2-3mm of clearance on each side...

    The extra hoop on the bottom will align with the 2 crossbars in the frame. At least, thats the idea...

    Here are 2 pics of the design. The back end will change somewhat, but you get the idea

    That's a cruel design,T. Reminds me a bit of the designs of Kamilos. Like the way,that the frame seems to be one piece with the fork-part.
    Btw,is that an Auto-cad drawing? Thumbs up and I'ld say: go for it! :mrgreen:

    It's solid edge, a 3D programm I use for work. Thought i'd try it with the bike building for once.
    Normally I do use autocad to just make a side view. That's way faster.
    Who is Kamilos?

    Yo T., am I right that I saw your orange creation on MP? It's an add from a guy from Gemert. And he's selling more bikes.
    And yes, I ment the Polish dude. Friend of mine from Hellevoet rides his Downfly-bike. So take the comparison as a compliment. :mrgreen:

    Heheheh, i definitely took it as a compliment :)

    Yeah, the guy from gemert is selling the bike. He asked me to build the doublestretch for him to sell. (and ride as long as its not sold :mrgreen: )

    I'm doing some more work for him now. Two rebuilds, nothing special.

    Nice idea,these fenders. Although I'm not sure yet,about the looks of the rearfender (might be a bit too wide),the frontfender is an absolute winner. Fits really nicely 'round the wheel. If you had a pair,it would look great,I think. If the rearfender is less wide,it suits the wheel better,at least,that's what I think. Think it over,T. But it certainly has potention. Looking forward to the pics. :mrgreen:

    Dunno about the fenders yet. I like the idea of being able to ride in the rain, but those tires just look too good to cover up....

    Anyway, here's another mornings work
