Well sorry for the long brake i had to take from bike building and the forum.

I had to renovate a home, marry my wife, landscape the garden etc..
But since the most of it is done its time to get building again:grin:
Been lurking now and then and i saw some really cool bikes being build this Build off!:forum:

It got me inspired again wooohooo!!!:agree:

First in line is my BO 10 entry, El Diablo.

Here is a link to the build thread

Thanx for watching

So one month has passed already time flies when you're watching MBBO 

Last week I got some parts for my bike again, I found a fork it's from a Kapitein Mobylette EEG that's an old moped and I also ordered the handlebars.
I mounted the fork that pretty much fitted straight away. But firsti neededto do some grinding on it

A lot cleaner!
These are the handlebars


So I mounted the fork and stuck some wheels in there to look how she sits

Not too bad but I think it needs some extra lenght or something it looks really short...
The fork also needs some extra room for the tyre cause its rubbing at the top and there wasn't any air in it yet so I think I'll add some extra rake and I hope it will be fine. Or maybe straighten it a bit more not sure what to do yet....

Well that s all for now I'll try to keep building as much as possible!

Thanx for watching and if anybody got some tips or pointers that would be great!

Made soke fork extensions today


Straightened the fork a bit more

Made a testfit but found uot the inner diameter of the fork was 21mm and my stem is 22.2 mm
So that aint gonna fit!


Made some trussrods from old seat staysbi had laying around

So I was enjoying a beer and lookimg at my progress and decided I didnt like how the frame was looking so chopped it up again

Thats better!

So I have another donor frame in the yard and I think I'll make double stays to the rear..
That's all for today next update is coming monday!
