This bike is looking awesome. I love the mods to the frame. Enclosed is a picture representing what I was thinking of when I looked at the very first photo in you thread. I'm enjoying this build! Cheers

Widened the rear frame for a wider hub

I also cleaned up the thread of the BB

Still need to make a mounting point for the tank and mount the engine.

For the engine i have an idea, i want to make the downtube split into two other tubes and mount the engine in between, i have a lot of old handlebars that i can use for that

Good progress!

Luke.
Thanx but i wish i was further along...

I already changed my plan for the fork, it's not gonna be a springer but i'm gonna use the fork thats on my Phat Coach as a donor, it has a polished aluminium triple tree that will go nicely with the aluminium hubs and seat post. And the legs are gonna be the same color as the bike or maybe black.

Thanx for watching!
