    Had issues with my computer
    but now back on track

    I will see if i can re-post the older pics

    as for updates i did get a little opportunity to start work on the moon disc

    3 tabs equal distance appart (about 13 tabs between each)

    Trimming the back so i can mount it to the wheels

    saving these 3 full size so I can use the whole as my area to drill so I can bolt both discs to each other

    the rest will be cut down

    Is it just me or are the pics not visible?

    Can you see the pics of the underside of the moon discs? If you can't, then it's you.

    Yes, but not the pics at the beginning of the thread.

    What I thought was going to be a rather straight forward build
    hit some major roadblocks
    I have spent a good amount of time seeing if i can still make it work
    good thing i Have a month to go still

    I got all the holes drilled into the discs
    [​IMG]

    I used the back tabs as a guide marker to plot out the 3 holes to bolt on the discs to the wheels
    [​IMG]

    But this is where all the issues started
    [​IMG]
    the disc is bowed much more than I expected
    nearly 5" in the center when both sics are put on
    I think I can still make it work
    but I need a new idea for a front fork/springer
    a wider coaster brake center for the rim
    and a new way to better attach such wide discs

    If I cant then I may need to look for a back up bike to build
