That fork looks sick!I put the fork together, but the fork needs to go to the machine shop for the ends to be flattened completely. I don't have the stuff to do it right. I think they have a press, but maybe just a big hammer.
You can see how far forward the front wheel is. The handlebars can go 3 inches higher by raising the stem. I have to make up 2 struts about 18 inches long to run from the front axles to the bracket at the top of the head tube. That still needs to be designed, I'll probably have that made up at the same shop. They did a good job on the flanges for Splat Rat.

I also raised the height by a half inch. Recent research shows that kick bikes have a deck height of 3.5 to 4 inches. The Schwinn has a height of 6 inches and no one likes that on the reviews. So this will put my foot height at 3 inches, if I mount the board to the bottom of the two bottom tubes as planned. Another option is to mount it on top of those tubes. I would have to trim it a little. That might look better, showing the whole board surface.
One other consideration is the option to lower the fork legs to fit a 24 inch wheelset. it would need longer struts too. That would bring the geometry more into normal but make the board too high to kick. The chain drive would have to work great to consider that. Kicking would be the secondary drive mode then.
