Start your build off journal here!
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.
Ok first things first. Tired of working on floor.
Daughters old spare.
A couple hours later a welder and a chop saw.
A bike stand.
Nice bike stand way to go.................ya know..........if you cut the center out of that donut you could have had the beginnings of a chopper wheel.............If I get you the wheel off a police car would you trade?
Practice makes progress.SOME OF MY OLD BUILDS
All right started working on springer.
Started with this.
Not quite done.
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
It's 5/8" I built one for my other bike more traditional type. and haven't had any problems.There is a pic in my intro. I might temper it now that you brought it up.
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.)
Now to work on a seat post to move my seat back. I have this cool seat I got on a $5 bike this summer.
