KWAZY DEATH MACHINE!! I LOVE IT
You probably already know this, but Don't forget that when the Voting thread is created we will use the first pic from your Finished thread. I'm not suggesting anything is wrong with the current pic, just making sure everyone knows.
That bike takes low riding to the extreme!
You are going to collect a lot of grass stain on the bottom of the pedals, as it should be.
It continues to evolve. '51 Shelby tank, correct chainguard, and fat saw-tooth tread front tire. More changes to come:
My original goal was to have it be able to roll up-side-down. With a few alterations,that mission has been accomplished.
Now for the ride video!
Keep thinking the stem should be flipped and the bars raked back a little bit....
I contemplated just about every handlebar possibility. But I did not physically try them all. I mounted the stem rearward to give the effect of a longer front end. I typically always like my ape hangers vertical. I also like having the grips sitting as horizontal as possible. I think that you are wanting the bars angled to match the fork angle. I do have ape hangers that I could set at the angle you are suggesting while still having the grips sitting horizontal. I might give that a try to see how it looks. This thing will never stop evolving as long as I keep thinking of different ideas for it. That's the part that's the most fun. How about mounting a drop stem forward? That would tuck the bars origin way up under the spring. Now you got me thinking. Thank you for the suggestion.
