    Here is my full custom twin leaf springer. I started with straight tube and a pile of parts but lost the pictures on my old phone so no progress shots[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The custom engineering of the leaf springs, the stance, the flow of the "one continuous line look" on the frame....you took your idea from proto-type to production bike! Clean, custom, cool! And I know from experience....it looks even better in person! Nice work Chad!

    Thanks man, always fun meeting fellow enthusiasts. I like your build as well. It has inspired me to make a collapsible travel version for camping.

    That rear leaf spring turned out really slick!
    Loved watching this build. Hard to believe that you mostly finished it in the first month of BOTEN.
    Great work my friend!!!
    BRAVO!!!!
