I am trying to find something like this that will fit 3/4" pipe. I would like 4 ideally but no clue where to find this in the smaller diameter. Everything I am finding is for motorcycles which generally start at 2" in diameter. Any ideas/leads? Thanks

Looking good so far! If you have a Schwinn excercycle, why not use it's wheel cover on your build?

.75 dia clamping surface, but what span do you need?

Do you have access to get the flat brace piece made and welded? Something like this maybe?

I'm sure I could find someone to do it. But if the thread pitch is standard, I could use a long bolt and thread it through both rings and tighten it to the span I need?

That’s a great idea

If you are using 3/4" pipe, the O.D. is probably about 7/8"-1". Would the triple trees from an OCC, or WCC bike work?

Stripped the coppertone (love it so much, but doesn't go with the theme). Too bad it's not a tiger theme, cause the wire brush creates an awesome tiger stripe pattern.
Trying to figure the stance still, mainly of the bars. I want the fork out where it is like a crouching panther, however, 2 major factors that I can't readily address are:

1. The headtube hardware. It's a schwinn steertube, but I don't have schwinn cups, bearings, or cones/races so I'm using the excerciser spacer which doesn't give me an accurate gauge of where the stem would be height wise. 2. I don't have any mounting hardware for the seat, so I can't sit on it and gauge where I want the bars to be... fun yet frustrating.

Once you are satisfied with the general placement and vibe, figure out the order that parts need to be locked into place and start your fab work from there. That is what I had to do with my parts this year.

Needed just a smidge more spacing at the cross brace of the headtube which, thankfully, was exactly 2 nuts worth *giggity*. I have the stance down just about perfect and am simply waiting for my truss bracing to arrive so I can set the handlebars in place. Need to track down a sissy bar as well, but all in good time. Started working on my moondiscs for the rear, but that is fodder for another post.
