    Everyone thank you so much for your compliments :oops:
    In fact, i have no extraordinary abilities,I'm doing this project in my small home studio, which I have collected many years,It takes only 6 square meters and is found on the balcony of my apartment,work on the machines I learn myself for several years while building workshop.
    Here are some photos of my studio:

    Fireproof -about the inscription, I think you're right but for now I will not touch it,now I'm still in rough stages,at the end many of the details go to trim handling over there i will sort things out :)
    In the meantime, I have many months ahead of interesting worck :p

    Wow, can't wait for this to finish :shock:

    As I don't see any drawings besides the fork, are you doing all this by head ? Trial & error ? I bow to thee, respect man 8)

    I do not do drawings,I like the concept of originality,also the forck i going to do on my way,original forck made from steel and my it from aluminium.
    I took out the drawings only the critical parameters and the rest will be upgraded,like the bearings,springs :roll:
    The only drawings that i have it^s concept in my head :mrgreen:

    Interesting idea for the headset. Those roller bearings should be able to handle the job! I’ll be watching to see what you have in mind for the forks.
    Keep up the great work!
