    Ok I'll try this. Got this frame from CL. $20. I'll make some type of springer for it and go from there. I hope to get it done in time.

    looks good but i have a possible safety related question...
    the solid bar for the front........is that just (im guessing on the width) 1/2" mild? if so id temper it....i made some trusses for a springer with that and before i tempered them i bent the heck out of them(im about 170#'s)

    looks really good though :mrgreen:

    Gee Sensor I was thinking you were going to tell him that it might slip out of the slotted forks. :roll: Good start though

    im guessing the springer on the black bike? looks good :mrgreen:
    5/8" probably wont fold but id still temper it(or at least lean on it really hard before riding to be sure).....

    Got springer done. seems pretty sturdy. And I did put new brackets on bottom of main legs so it wouldn't slide out. Thanks Uncle Stretch ( I cant believe I did that.)

    Haven't posted for awhile. spent last week stripping paint and sanding I hate that part. And went and picked up some other bikes. Got it in primer and took it to a buddy's to spray. Now we're waiting on dry weather.
