I was encouraged to get back onto RRB and throw this build into the winter buildoff.

I was needing a use for a 36" wheel I had sitting around and had also been toying around with building another tall bike. Figured I'd kill two bikes with one stone. Introducing the King Krate. I'm going to try to keep it as close to stock looking as possible and not get too wild.





Seat will be at 5' and the grips about 6'. Tall bike BB will be placed at the stock seat post clamp. More to come!

Glad that the timing on this build lined up with the WBO. This is gonna be a blast to watch!
For those of you that don't know, @pvwacko is the builder of my Screamer XXL frame, fork, seat, and guard. Also he's not new to RRB, he was around in the early days alot.
Build on brother. This is such a cool concept!

I welded in the seat tube before I put the frame into the jig.



Laid everything out for frame jig measurements.



Mounted up in the jig.



Dropouts to have the original overall shape but open in a different direction.



Rough cut with the torch.



Mounted in the jig.



Mocked up the chainline to make sure it clears the seat stays.



More progress tomorrow!
