Start your build diary here.
So I've decided to hack up the Monark. Has anyone ever cut (the green spots) these areas on a bike & taken some tube out at the top to rotate the back of the bike up so it sits lower in the rear & gives it that 50's led sled look?? Not sure how it's going to work but wanna try it.
Just cut the top green spot then bend back like Randy describes in his link for a frame chop. Nice bike.
Double Nickle- " All I'm planing on doing is building a awesome bike for me to ride...."
I don't have any pics yet but we cut out 1.5" at the top & bent the rear of the bike up & welded it back & also cut the top of the tube off where the seat goes. Now the question is to run a 24" rim with 3" wide tire & bobbed fender or a 24" wheel & connect 2 fenders to make a fender that wraps around the tire in the rear & I'm going to run a 26" wheel on the front.
Got the frame, tank & springer in primer. I've never been so undecided on a paint scheme & I also ordered the 24" x 3" white wall for the rear. I have NO IDEA what direction I'm headed with this thing now.
