Awesome!
Pretty sure you could just cut that nice tapered tube out, move the back up and weld it back in to do the sex change, be a shame to lose the tube, nice curves...

Luke.
I was thinking #1, wanna grab that seat post and arc it back, leaving 4" straight tube at the top. Then add a top bar with the tapered.

You suggested #2, which would almost reach, would have to extend it about an inch. But, now thinking to cut it off to raise as you suggest and extend it 4 inches or so for # 3. :)


MC, in the game! And goin' shiny....what's become of us rusty ratters?! :bigsmile:
Got rusty zombie chaser going on as well. It will finish before this one.

I figure with my ugly welding, gonna have to add some color and shine to kinda offset it.
I'm looking @ the seat thinking "that is a real banana.... what is he taking about? "

To bend the top tube back, will be spreading the chainstay and seatstay tubes. Plan to pie cut them and bend them in as i bend the seat tube.

Anyone know a good pie cutting template sw that might make it a little easier? Else will draw them in by hand.



Need 190mm wide at the dropout. Funny how plans change as the bike starts to speak...

If you are using a 1 pc crank, I have a 26t cog I just pulled off my MBBO crank arms that would give it a very low gear range. Not much for high end though....:21:
