    Re: the BLUE MEANIE /got some parts! 10/19------

    now, you might have noticed, i put the forks in a vice and gave them a light bend........
    well, that's just not gonna Kut the mustard!
    so the front of the bike was raked about 3/4 inch....... 8)

    the rake went well, and we were bouncing ideas around for an all metal seat.
    i wanted it to be entirely metal, and i wanted to sit above the rear tire.
    it was decided that if the bike had a nice rake in front, it was gonna need a nice shovel in the rear! :shock:

    this build is a dedication to all the great friends i've met on this website, and to the website itself.
    i was so inspired at the turkey day ride, and for Kuttnhack to open his shop for me, and the parts donated by Mike S. & James.
    here is a mock up picture taken at the lab....... 8)

    good luck to everyone! 1 week to go!! crunch time! :lol:

    I used a #2 shovel once... by the time I had it shaped to be somewhat comfortable you couldn't tell it was a shovel anymore!
