    So I almost have my Stretch done and my best friend says "Bro I need one of those" and here we go again!!
    With a quick search on CL we found a nice candidate for $40.00 twenty minutes later we are ready to start cutting 8)

    My friend loves his dirty devil shirt so that's how I came up with the name.....

    Re: Dirty Devil

    Hey thanks guys.... This bike is living up to it's name I had to stop working on it last week due to a smashed finger and today I was doing some welding and grinding on it and the grinder slipped and cut my index finger to the bone!! I cant wait for the cursed bike to be done and in someone else's garage!!!

    That's bad luck, dude. Get well soon, so you can finish the bike.

    the frame looks awesome! would look cool with a raked lowrider fork on it or something to kinda throw the front wheel out a little more ya know? cant wait to see it finished!!

    Wow, good ideas on this one. I just picked up the same frame with 20" ww's, a 20" springer fork and banana seat in a trade and was wondering what to do with it. Let me know if you wanna sell or trade that chain guard, mine didn't come with one and will probably just build it up first before deciding what to do.

    Looks great, I can picture it with some thick bricks on it the way it sits without extra rake.

    They're 24 x 3, really good quality tire BTW.

    Loving this build, you've got a lucky friend... :mrgreen:

    Keep up the awesome work, just watch your fingers!

    Cheers,

    2nd Stretch "The Dirty Devil"

    Thanks Dr. T.... I'm running 26's so I guess the thick bricks are out. And as far as my friend goes, he was there for me when no one else was so i think it's a pretty fair trade off.

    Yeah, the thick bricks are 24's, but they're as tall as a 26".

    2nd Stretch "The Dirty Devil"

    Thanks jackdaw.... I really love the way it came out. I gave up trying to work with the splint on my hand so off it came. I mocked up dirty devil for a little shakedown..... Nice and straight a little wobble in the front nothing to serious. [​IMG]

    Re: 2nd Stretch "The Dirty Devil"

    that turned out pretty rad dude! still think the front end needs something. apes maybe? to be raked out or something... maybe some triple trees? just my opinion... but regardless, looks awesome. you got me wanting to chop things up in my garage now!!! any ideas for paint yet?!
