Hi there!
I've decided to make a new project during my winter holidays. This time I've gone for a classic boardtracker look inspired by old harley Davidson and Indian motorcycles.
So first I've printed a template.. and my cat approved it

Bent some tubes

Got a donor for headtube, bb and dropouts

Mount the jig

Check that everything is straight

And add the bb and the straight bar

Double check

And make a suicide shifter for 8 speed hub


And there will be more pics later

Wow, great start. I really like your jig, is there a plan set for it available? That fork looks perfect for the antique look of the project. Always great to see another scratch built project :thumbsup:

The jig is this one: http://www.flatpackfoundry.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=20&product_id=50
As far as I know the design is not open source.
There will go another fork. I'm thinking about double springer monarch style fork.

I think that jig was on Kickstarter a couple of years ago.

Wait, you're not using that fork? I like that one on there.
Yeah this jig was on kickstarter.
This fork is from another bicycle. I've just "borrowed" to check the geometry.

:acute:There's a lot of those reproduction Monarch forks around, I think the coolest fork should go on the coolest bike (just my $0.02)
I think the same way. for now my rat rod is the coolest build. I ll have to check how it will suit the new frame and the old one. Maybe I'll swap them.
