Thanks texasbigjon, seeing as I can't easily get the cool parts you guys in the US have access to, I have to build my own (I guess that's how many of the hot rodding pioneers did it though). I've still got a bit of fabrication to do.....parts will be appearing gradually as I get the time to do them. I picked a donor this morning for the shock to use for the springer front end.
Quick mock-up, and it looks OK dimension wise. More to come next week, as I've got a full two days of rehearsal for our high school musical, and won't get to play with bikes this week-end.
Quick mock-up. I'll be using longer fork legs to get some suspension travel
