    OK , I think I've decided on a frame to use and a direction :roll: But , I reserve the right to completely change my mind . :shock: :p These are the losers in the frame battle . A sweet Evans , I've been wanting to build one since I saw what texasbigjohn did with my old one . I just got this last week and was convinced that it would be my RRBBO bike [​IMG]

    great looking stuff as usual,jeff! :D really wished you would have gone with that evans frame though. im pretty sure you could stuff a 4" wide tire into the rear of that frame,without any mods. looking forward to your build this year,buddy! 8)

    Re: Hawthorne Lows (name temporary )

    Thanx for the positive comments . I've had the fork on a couple different frames , but it never found a home , it seems to flow well with the Snyder , it's an inch longer from the BB to the neck than the Evans . Also I want to use the 5 speed & have a twin tube stick shifter coming . The Evans will get built eventually , maybe with a Surley Black Floyd . But for this build . I'm going more traditional Hot Rod :!:

    An all day rain killed my plans to strip the frame . That'll have to wait till next weekend . [​IMG]not much else got done , spent the rest of the weekend working on other projects , like this killer 3 speed coaster w/ skiptooth & heavy duty spokes for VoyagerAl[​IMG]and this seat & post for my Silver King[​IMG][​IMG]the seat is made up from parts of 5 different seats , with some comfy padding added & covered with an old jacket , along with a reflector made from some old sign cateyes and a piece of aluminum

    Re: Hawthorne Lows (name temporary )

    no good news , nothing is going as planned :( I had a whole different build in mind , till I traded for the 5 speed hub , then I decided to use the disc up front , to keep a modern setup @ both ends . But , the shifter I got does not fit the spacing of my twin tubes . Also , the rear stays are too narrow for the hub :roll: Looks like I may be using my frame change card :p

    Sorry to hear the plans had kinks. I'm sure you'll sort out new ones.
    If it was easy, everybody would do it, right? :lol:
    That's one crazy fork! Looking forward to see what's next...
