Nice video Luke,
That bike looks good and is a "shoe" in with the kickstand tip!

Carl.
Thanks Carl! That was my one little thing I wanted to add! Found that little shoe at the start of the year and have been waiting for the right bike ever since! ;)
I think it is meant to be a key ring...

I am going through some of my old builds and updating them, starting with this one.

In the end I decided this build was too dangerous.

I'm too old to be bouncing off tarmac like a teenager, it was fun though, but I think the heavy rear tire is not the best on a swingbike, just too much pendulum action when turning and too much weight when you come off it and it lands on top of your mangled body...
:21:

Anyway, parts of this build have found their way on to quite a few builds since, all that remains now is the rear triangle and the long forks.

It was fun, and I learnt a lot, so I still call that a successful build! :thumbsup:

Luke.
