    Oh Ya, double wall steel post riveted!
    The black seat post was driven all the way inside the neck of the stem, then epoxied and riveted.

    :x Dame truck broke down today. Customers will have to wait till tomorrow now, I'm going to play with my bike. :D

    Re: Devist8er ~ new fork legs

    Well it took the repair shop till this morning to get my truck fixed so I had all day yesterday to work on the bike. :D
    GOT the new fork legs done :!: I'm really happy with how they turned out. 1-1/2 tube cut at 25" lengths at 30degs each end with a welded caps and brake stay.
    I worked on polishing them last night and should have time to install them this weekend. In the mean time I, need to pick up some longer pivot bolts for the leading links.

    Re: Devist8er ~ Together and 1st test ride

    IT's AWESOME!! if I can say so myself... Got all together and have been out on it a couple times now. Everything seems to be working soooo smooth.

    The fork came out great. I installed all new washers and spacers cleaned the linkage up and greased it all. I added a cable guide to the fork leg for the brake so it wasn't flopping around.

    I've made an extra long kick stand but really dont like it. It just doent look right or compair to the rest of the bike. Not sure if I'll even have one on it.

    Just a few more pieces of red anodize I'd like to add and I feel it'll be done.
