    Re: SOUL CATCHER

    Cool start, is the triple tree fork still strong enough without the top plate?

    Cheers,

    Its off a mountain bike, not sure but its a welded bottom mount time will tell. Ive seen where someone had done one and just added a piece at the top so i might do that to just be safe

    Lookin' good Man :!: That looks like the same fork I used last year on my trike.Please trust me:you're gunna want the top clamp on the steer tube.Or a sufficient bracket.Especially if you mount a front brake for hauling around a pile of souls. :wink: Just a suggestion...

    Re: SOUL CATCHER

    Looks good, what are you going to do to bring some red up high in the front? Grips? Stem cap? It's just missing some red up there.

    Took SOUL CATCHER for a short shake down ride. Couldnt resist any longer and WOW what a smooth ride it was. I wasnt expecting it to ride like it did I expected it to have a few kinks to work out.
