    thanks for the heads up buddy and i finally got a new phone charger so feel free to call me. also i left my camera at the shop so thats why i have not updated. i know i have been lazy i have not been feeling too good with all the smoke and now 100 plus temps. but i gathered some new parts to put the fork together and should have it done in a week or so. i think you will all be impressed.

    Re: PAY IT BACK updated 6/22

    finally got around to finishing off the front wheel tensioning it all up got the tire mounted now onto the rear. also started removing the paint off the chain guard but the metal under it is not too good so i think i might just paint it flat black and do some striping on it. and yea yea i know no pics yet sorry trying to get a hold of the computer at home for 5 min is a trick these days and when i do the darn dial up acts up and wont let me upload. grrrrrrr sorry i know i prommised pics and i will delieve as soon as i can.

    Re: PAY IT BACK updated 6/22

    i coped out i know i prommised that everything on the bike was going to be metal polished but i need to spend more time on the fork and the metal when i removed the paint from the chain guard and kick stand was not so pretty so i decided to shoot them with metal specks copper. figured it would go well with the gold parts i am using.

    Re: PAY IT BACK updated 6/22

    now the real fun begins the fork. it will be a sort of severly modified schwinn style springer i guess you will all have to hang with me for more info on it. i started with the base aka the lower crown and piviot. it is made out of two 1/2 steel plates that were welded together and squared off then tack welded together for shaping. this is where i started.

    then the corners were cut off so that it could be rounded off. but there is more i wanted both halfs to also be round from the side as well so here is where it gets interesting. once the corners were rounded i started working on the side angles

    your not missing anything with the frame other than it has rusted a bit because i am waiting till it is all mocked up to polish and clear the frame. however since these were taken much more has been done to the fork and it is taking shape. thanks on the wheels i really dig the color combo myself now i just have to lace the rear and i am golden.

    sorry i could not get the computer last night long enough to get any posted. thanks sensor for your worry she is fine thank goodness and she is letting me spend as much time with building pay it back as well because i think she realized that it means a lot to me. nothing is more important than her but she sees how much time has gone into it so far and how it would be wrong to stop me now.
