A place for scratch built frame bikes.
well since the build off got killed off i guess ill finish this one off here....
laid out for bending
rough mock up
got a little work done today(finally started cutting steel for the drop outs but dont have my vise grips here or my butcher bit and grinder so theyll get finished and tacked next weekend )

thanks and heres the basics for the seat....i still need to make the pivot for the front and the frame but you get the jist of it...
and yes i know on a solo the springs are supposed to face the opposite way but i dont weigh that much so i dont need alot off bounce and these are rated for over 300#s
got to playing around today and next thing in line will be to take this shifty little guy and stick it to him!
seems like itll be a fairly easy process and i have most of the bugs worked out but dont have enough steel here to start cutting and fitting tonight
stared eyeballing this again and heres approximately how shell sit when done
i finally got my drop outs rough cut/level/square so i can get them off not and start carving them into shape and start tacking them
glad ive finally got some time to bring her back from the dead finally...
Can't wait till your done I'll be watching this
finally got her out of the jig
still need to trim a couple things,make the brackets for the seat pan,and mount the b.b. but shes on her way finally!
ive even got my shifter figured out
at this rate she may see primer before halloween
I love the stance of your bike. Have you tried out the riding position yet? how does it feel?
in this pic there looks like there is some sort of half tank in the bike. I know its the rails from your rod but it actually would look really good with a tank of that shape
But then again, I could be totally wrong.
Thats looking real nice, I really wan't to attempt something like this sometime, (Someday I see a 5x5 clear space on my garage floor),So are you gonna make the Rodeo this year ?
What would Jesus ride???
