    I want to learn how to do pin-striping by hand, these were made with duct tape.;)

    I'm having trouble with the air chambers. they do not support fat frank size 2x2.35. I've already provided larger cameras.

    I covered the saddle with black leather.

    the extra springs were great.

    "I'm having trouble with the air chambers. they do not support fat frank size 26 x 2.35"

    Leo do you mean inner tubes? What size have you put in the tires? Any 26" tube will stretch out to fill a tyre. I guess the only problem you might have is if you have to patch a puncture on a much smaller tube - say 1.5" - the patch might not stretch out with the inner tube rubber and may fail. But I wouldn't be worried with a 2" inner tube if that's what you're using.

    It's looking great, love the seat, springs, leather recovering :) Have you taken it for a test ride yet?

    I have not been able to take a test tour yet.
    I just sat on it with the bicycle stopped. I felt it soft.


    the inner tubes are 2 "but they are not suppressing the 40bar pressure.


    I bought specific inner tubes for the fat tires. I'll take it right now.

    thank you:113:

    Wait...40 bar?! That's, like, 580 psi! There must be a decimal point in there somewhere.

    I assumed 40psi...just that bar is probably the standard in Brazil :).

    Thank you for your help and support.:praise:

    I wanted that look of the fenders right next to the tire.

    Very nice! What I meant was, "do not chip the paint!"
    One chip or scratch would make you cry..
