    Wow it's killer! The illusion on the fork/bars is amazing. Looks really cool.

    I am totally enamored with this bike! I don't get the colored lines / angles diagram, or what their individual or collective meanings are? All I can say is, you better keep that opposite pedal back on any sharp turns....toe overlap city! :eek:

    light green = ground
    orange = steering axis
    blue = tire contacting the ground

    the space between the orange and blue line on the ground is the ''trail'' positive trail

    other lines at the back are just the wheelie angles

    for the pedal thing , it can't really hit my toes, the crank is wide and i have the habbit to pedal on my toes like on my road bike

    Handle bars, obviously. It's right there in the equation. :D

    I agree with Chad that the fork/bars do create an illusion. Whether you planned that or not, it's very cool how it appears to have negative trail even though it doesn't.:tmi::nod::shake:

    I'm not quite sure. I'm not trying to cause trouble here, but if you look past the bike and everything else in that diagram, the blue line is not perpendicular to the 'ground' line. So I'm guessing the trail is pretty close to 0, or definitely less than what the lines currently indicate.

    You can't take the photo literally. The bike is angled and off center creating distortion and also there is fish eye distortion (look at the straight row of pavers). We know that 1HP is very meticulous, so I'm quite sure that he actually measured it. (I also want to see him ride it though)!:bigsmile:

    i compiled the expences and i come with a total of 140$ total for that build, steal/welding wire /cuting disks/old seat/old wheels /paint/leater/yog mat/batteries

    bondo/sandpaper were left overs
    rear hoop /handles/ crank were a trade/donation for old parts
    pedals and head set were from a donor bike for Haul-in(last build)

    not half bad :113:
    cost allot of time tho:dontmentionit:

    And that's why custom anything is expensive, you have to pay for that time.

    That is cheap 1HP!
    Did you remember the cost of tires and chain?

    tire came with the hoop
    +15$ for the chain true!


    should have made it bare metal , the cost would have dropped by 70$:bigsmile:
