    So i download tapatalk again and what do i find? You guys just started a winter build off. Well i just tossed this Murray in the stand and tossed a rat trap springer on. So why not lets go. Obc is a few weeks after the finish so it gives me something to shoot for. [​IMG] i had wondered if u can stuff a 26x1 3/8 in one of these forks and well yes you can. This is a 24" fork by the way [​IMG]

    Great bones to start with. The frame, I think, is a Huffy though.
    Should be a cool build with the 24" rat trap w/the rockers flipped. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

    Glad to see you in Karfer!
    Will that tire bottom out in the fork when the spring moves?

    I dont think it will have much travel. It has about 1/2 inch of room.

    I have a 26" rat trap springer.
    I was wishing there was more travel on mine too.
    In fact, I haven't used it on anything yet...
    The shorter fork brings the stance down a bit eh?
    Cool.

    Carl.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] this is why im running a 26x1 3/8 front. Ive had this tire for about two years. Scored it in a pile of tires. No idea how old it is but check out that tread. Its also a little more squared off so yes its narrow but has a beefy look
