Ok I'm in. I want to spiff up my fat bike. I plan to build another frame that is a little longer
and maybe do something with that BMX looking top tube. Probably won't be too exotic, but
I plan to change it up some. I got my bender busy and bent a couple stays and a couple extra
to change the springer to something that would fit. Its close. Still needs a little , but coming along.

Re: Fat Fix

Well at least everybody is easily amused. If I can build a fork,,,,not even a painted and
bondoed fork and yall are enjoying it, the frame will really be exciting . :wink:

Re: Fat Fix

Thanks Schwinnray and Bikerbutch. I don't normally play in these because I will be finished in a week.
This will be a kinda silly build,and not expecting any wins out of this one, but its going to be fun.

Re: Fat Fix

Still waiting on my lugless bottom bracket shell. I ordered two so I can have them
welded together to make one 4 1/2'' wide. They shipped today so I should have them
next week where I can build my frame. I spent the day adding the bondo to my springer.
I only had some orange paint so I sprayed them that color. It probably won't be the color
of the build though. The fork is looking pretty good so far.

Re: Fat Fix

Thanks guys , Not sure where the color choice will end up. General Lee huh? Guess I could have some
confederate flag stickers made and put them on the rims. :shock: :shock:
