Thanks. I did make the jig but there really isn't a lot to it. It's basically pre-drilled 1" tubing typically used for storage shelving, some pieces of plain tubing, and clamps. Previous build-off I used 1" for the straight horizontals. I'm using 2"x3" this time around to help hold the vertical pieces more stable. I'll probably eventually upgrade to 2"x3" verticals and make axle plates or purchase them from Chop Source.Nice work. I assume you made your frame jig as well?
The scratch or custom frame builds like this are def a step above us drill and bolt guys.
Thank you very much! The seat/rear tire clearance is a concern for sure. To be honest I didn't take the spring movement into consideration go figure! I've got options though. I can flip the seat clamp backwards to move the seat forward relative to the post a bit. Could even use longer bolts for the spring attachment that would prevent any movement at all. A little drastic but it would work.Just....WOW.
I'm always so blown away by all of you guys with fabbing skills. I can "customize" bikes and motorcycles (have even had a couple of articles and a spot on a calendar done for mine), but it's just not the same as building from scratch like this. The fabrication, the vision in your head brought together in a real, working bicycle...just blows me away. And just love the lines of this. So very frikkin' cool!
I am a little concerned about your seat/rear tire clearance, however, i.e., spring movement, if you decide that you don't have enough leg room and want to raise the seat post, etc...?
Will certainly be watching this one closely!
