    A build done before @OddJob ? Say it ain't so. GC.

    Thanks. At this point, (understand it's still early in the race) the only idea I've dropped is an offset steering to put the front tire in the centered trike position. I can't really do that AND make the subframe detachable. I think being able to cruise this bike without the door might be a cool...

    I think I've got a pretty cool anti-trailer queen look started. It's a classic burrito thing to leave all the original paint and welds hanging out there for all to see. So I won't be smoothing out all the ridiculous welds that really look as if they were applied with a hot glue gun. Instead I'm...

    Went back out and swapped some tires around so I will have a pair of tires on the back. 48v 1000w front hub matched against a 7 speed derailleur, both rolling on 26 x 4 tires GC.

    Take em' out and ride em'. She's a roller and the thought has crossed my mind to make the subframe detachable. Because it rides nice now... Carl.

    Yeah the opposing curve looks ok but where to land them? The planned route ends them on the OCC frame nicely, in theory gives them a purpose. GC.

    I'm thinking speed holes for sure and a possible window frame removal but a gotta keep the wing vent. Carl.

    Bigger wheel it is! It thinks it's a muscle bike with apes and a banana seat. I still need to weld the rest of the cantilevers and the end of the old seatpost where I removed the BB... but a couple hours and I could be rolling. Carl

    Hey Merle says I can ride someone on my handlebars now... Carl

    Thank you. Check this out! Main frame is almost done. A bit of secondary seatpost, continue the cantilevers and I could be rolling down the road. The 7 speed drivetrain from Muscle Spasm is intact. The disc brakes are wimpy and likely to be a problem with a 48v 1000 w pusher. So that's an issue...

    Add one more. I stared at the last one for a while and thought no that's not it. This is better. No welds yet. But tomorrow there will be! GC

    The progression so far. GC

    Nothing is welded yet but... I'm still in the "refining" part of the build. I could say no classic bikes were harmed in the making of this build but I'd be lying. Might be fun to make a list of the carnage. 2 OCC stinkrays (so far) a Columbia Twosome (not much left of that bike on this build)...

    You know that'd be a DoorK :crazy: tattoo? 🎸 Carl
