Kota, thanks appreciate it. Our drinking water has been replaced with Vodka straight from the tap.
Started mock up of front struts & stand. Ran out of clamps; will finish both and clean up rough edges.
Settle on this look for the fork struts.
Front Forks complete.
Whew! Finished that pesky seat post.
You're on a roll with the "Dream Junk"....
Chad T, thanks brother. Gotta cut back on my copper intake.
There's just so much "wicked coolness" going on here! I haven't been this fascinated with a build in a long time.
Kota, I appreciate your comments brother. Long time fan of your builds.
This build is really taking on an identity all it's own; and that's hard to achieve in this very creative environment of builders! I'm liking your direction and the bike is coming together nicely.
OddJob, appreciate the kind words of encouragement. You are the King of Rustification.
Finally decided on this double leg stand. Will finish the other leg, when I find the matching spring.
Details Details Details!
KF, you know a thing or two about details. The devil is always egging us on. I am trying to join a 12 step program to manage my dodads addiction.
Okay, tried the seat with the seat post mounted. Gonna call it good for the saddle.
Doesn't look too comfy but who knows, I have a bare spring seat that's real nice to sit on.
It is not that comfortable. However, it fits the flow of the build. I have a Brooks leather seat with copper rails; tried on the bike and did not work with the spirit of the build. Let's face it, a lot of the unconventional things we do in our builds are not always functional.
Ain't that the truth.
That is definitely a 2dawgs saddle!!!
Work of art man!
