    Re: New School "Jacked It Up"

    The easiest thing to do with those braces you cut is just to cut 'em completely out and replace them. Looks great so far.

    Re: New School "Stripper!"

    I remember the first time I used airplane stripper, it was on a KA24DE aluminum valve cover, I was amazed at how well that stuff worked... and just how a tiny bit could so quickly burn you! haha

    Looking good.

    Public Safety Announcement...Never, ever sit down in a puddle of paint stripper.

    I did. Once. :shock:



    Oh yeah, killer work on widening those stays.

    Re: New School "full frame pics"

    Didn't hurt my clothes, but my butt looked like one of those baboons with the bright red hindquarters. :mrgreen:

    I was working at a Corvette restoration place, and out back we had several cut down 55 gallon drums that we used as workbenches. I was stripping a set of valvecovers and I got tired of standing, so I sat down on one of the shorter drums. I completely forgot that I had just stripped an air cleaner on that one and there was just enough stripper left on top to soak through my jeans and burn my bum. Ooops.

    I'm really liking your frame. No doubt this will shape up to be a very cool bike!

    I'll be interested to see how much tire you can squeeze into that fork. I seem to remember a Fat Frank being pretty tight, vertically.

    Re: New School "Time to make the Gussets"

    I think flush should strengthen it just as much as further down, especially with welds top and bottom and since that plate is so thick.
