    Looks cool but we know full well you can't sit on ink. I have faith you'll get it ready to ride in no time.

    I don't like it, I LOVE IT. :inlove:

    I really do think it looks better the way you have it now compared to the front spring and jackshaft version. It was too busy. This is much cleaner and leaner.

    :praise:

    Agreed!

    Family wedding tomorrow, then spending time with other family for a couple of days, then I will back on the build!

    The more I study the details, the more I love it!
    Front wheel built on a motorcycle wheel I assume?
    What's the diameter??

    Thanks!
    Correct, that is a 21" wheel and tire off a Harley Davidson.

    Health has knocked me around a bit, had the Flu, which compounded my other health issues...

    Did this video a few days ago, only now getting around to putting it in the thread:



    Was pretty sure that would be the end for the moment, but did some more night time work today: (well, yesterday now!)

    New fatter and stiffer tube welded in and some added flat braces to transfer loading further around the curves:

    2017-03-28 00.02.01.jpg

    That moved the wheel backwards slightly due to the larger diameter tube, so I had to extend the chain, but one link is too much, so until I get an adjuster mounted in place behind the crank, it will run a floating chainring:

    Still not sure if it will make the finish line... 5 days to go! :confused:

    Thanks G-Matt!
    Yes, that would work, could easily weld a chainring to the other crank too, but problem solved now anyway! :thumbsup:
    Way, way too much! Glad you are liking it!

    Luke, that floating & spinning chain-wheel stuck in there as a functional chain tensioner is the coolest thing I have ever seen. LEAVE IT THERE and to heck with the usual boring kind. Spinning and floating down the road held only by tension...... :cool2:

    I'm trying, looks like it will be getting a temporary seat and bars, run out of time for my double spring leather covered spoon seat!
