ok after much internal debate with the multiple personalities within my mind I switched tires to brick red vintage looking tires after looking at tons of old board trackers almost all the pics I see have colored tires from the era
and I got my leaf spring today! so now all I need is a few more parts to arrive and see if I can make this springer!
I will detail the whole springer build (if it works) and add it to the how to section
but the second pic gives you a feel how it will look and by adding the missing pieces the front tire will move about 3 inches forward and 2 inches down making the clearance needed for the front tire
my basement lighting and the dark walls make these pics look much oranger than they are so when I take pics outside it should all look more natural





couldn't afford white tires like this :(

I am debating on how many to use I think it would look more correct with the 3 but even wit my fat .... thats way overkill lol and actually this short lil leaf spring is heavy it might make it to top heave for a kickstand so I wont really know til I put it together

lets see $1750 for this

or make my own with these pieces lol



 
How thick are your leafs on the springs and do you know what they are off of? Have you checked to see if any metal yards have any spring metal that is like 1/16" thick to make your own leafs? That would save weight plus be more functional. Just trying to throw some suggestions out there. I know how stiff those leaf springs are. Troy
