Was informed that there was a build off going and to throw my hat in so here she is again. Well with little more than a week left before the Tour de Fat ride here in Tempe AZ I decided that my chopper just wasn't going to do. I've had this sketch sitting around on my desk for a few months now and with the tubing roller all set up it was time to get crazy! First things first. had to make a frame jig. I still have to make a BB holder but the frame support worked for mocking up the postition so I could mark it on the jig. Now this is where it gets really fun! Alot of eyeball work for this kind of deal. if the frame works out well I'll trace it onto plywood for easier recreation. Looking good! Should have the main hoop all welded in tomorrow with the BB in place and time to start working on the rear stays. I've got quite a wish list for this project: Nexus 3speed (or 8 ) internal with a disc brake laced into a 24" for a thick brick tire, Jockey shift, all internal cables, and a stereo. That's where the portable ipod dock comes in. I hope to mold it all into the gas tank for a super clean look.
