Sorry to hear the news. Praying the time left continues to follow this pattern.
Peacefull energy headed your way Carl.
That's what I wanna see..
The lacing vid. I did like 4 wheels before I realized he was doing the spokes around the valve hole wrong.
He puts the first spoke next to the valve hole when he starts which is good but when he starts putting spokes in from the opposite side of the hub he puts that first spoke on the other side of the valve hole which is not how to do it. You want to put that spoke next to your first spoke away from the valve hole and then twist the hub so the spoke next to the valve hole leans away from it.
Really only notice it on a small rim with a large flange hub. Then the spokes kind of get in your way when you go to pump up the tire.
From the depths of page three...
I've yet to be able to get my welder up and running (no 220)
I'm also concerned with the effect of the offset rims versus the weight of two riders on the rims themselves. The rims I pulled off of the tandem have some thick spokes. The rims I laced... not so much.
I've already bent the original front seat post...
So with a resigned sigh...
As it sits today before the swappage commences.
Just caught up here. Sorry to hear about your dad. I lost my dad to cancer back in the early 80's. Prayers sent.
This is quite a change from the deuce! Good luck! You've got plenty of time!
Thank you. I believe I can still put together a fun and crazy bike in the time we have left... now it's not a Deuce so... This is the beginning of Harlequin Uno!
Love the new name!
I also have 98% of what I need to return the Deuce into a rolling tandem...
Welcome back buddy!
Gotta work fast...
HiBoi in progress...or...
LoBoi in progress...
What's your plans for this new frame? Looks like fun.
It's like a test mule for that water bottle holder..
Good move. It's hard enough to get somebody to ride on the back of a regular tandem.
Frame will stay as is... tweaked the fork already with my hand conduit bender. I need to try and get a pic of the bottom tube headjoint, it has an awesome ripple/buckle in it from a header my son took on it. Downhill into a t intersection in the woods...
Shaken, not stirred...
The original drawing for the Deuce had apehangers, but the Uno seems more like a boardtracker gone wrong, these bars are growing on me.
Now, can I find a suspended tank...
Still want to see a riding video when you get this thing going Carl!
Definitely! I was wondering yesterday, if I could ride a wheelie on it...
Oh that poor seat post. It's gonna take a beatin' when she gets a buckin'.
Dig that chainring..
Im not sure if i missed something, but how about close up / info on the bar wrap from the front of the duce/hiboi pic?
