We were short on funds when we ordered them, so I got them printed on a white background and not profile cut, the white surround does show a little as it is a different shade of white, but it still looks good. I'm happy! :thumbsup:

The paint is so bright white it is hard to get a good pic of... :confused:

Seems like the backing blends in pretty well, I couldn't see it.

What's the hub spacing on the fork and rear dropout again? And is your head tube a 1"?

Just trying to compare with some of the modern hub spacing on the multitude of mtb models available today. Looking good Luke! Can't wait to see the parts on it! :inlove:

Both hubs are rear BMX trick bike hubs, so 14mm axles and a O.L.D. of 115mm, headtube is 1 1/8th threadless.

I'm looking forward to seeing it done too!

Sweet Luke! Let's get that baby in the dirt! The saddle is perfect on there. And is that a quick-release seat clamp?! Nice touch. :41:

Ride Vid! Ride Vid! Ride Vid! :nod::nod::nod:
Yep, ended up with a quick release on there. Ride video will happen, just need to wait on my health a bit more or find someone willing to ride while I video...
Very nice Luke, very nice. :41:
Thanks TRM!

I believe that frame is a Trek Sawyer . It's a 29" trow back to the klunker . It can also be set up as a Kevlar bet drive single speed. They don't make that bike anymore but they still pop up once and a while . If it is a swyer

I think that is a frame he built, I may be wrong?
Cool whatever it is!
