    project "deathtrap" uk broadtrack racer build.

    Oh btw I highly suggest going down and getting some No. 41 chain for it down at a Tractor Supply Co. It'll make a big difference iand save you a lot of breakage and mess in the longrun

    project "deathtrap" uk broadtrack racer build.

    I dunno, I kinda like the new tank. Makes it look stout, more serious. No, its not the standard elegant flow that your eye might want to see, but thats another great thing about it - its not standard. It looks like a serious, well centered, heavyset, mean machine now - like it needs to be out on...

    Bobber:ish Rex Lyx 1936 Build. *Its DONE*

    Re: Bobber:ish Rex Lyx 1936 Build. Sweeeet, What kind of rear wheel is it going to be? Im too lazy to stop typing this and double check if you already said :roll: But have you ever tried those flat 'drag slick' sulky tires? Could be a pretty slick idea for later years if you wanna change up, I...

    Re: Bobber:ish Rex Lyx 1936 Build. Uuuugh, I've been gone for half a year - But I like what I've come back too :wink: I like the new bars and the springer, the rear fender was mighty dapper as well though I'd play around with the idea of bobbing it - could look cool. Bobbing fenders is kinda...

    I cant tell because my computers not letting me check it out :x They look pretty good, but quality is pretty much all the same no matter who you buy it from, a nice decent one can be as cheap as 40-30-even 20 bucks, some times cheaper if your eyes are good enough. If the compy would let me...

    Like dis! That should let the tabs of the fork slide right on in to the bracey thingy (That is in fact the technical term - trust me, I'm an expert :roll:) Either way I'm really liking this stance! :mrgreen: ...though I still think it would be sick with a mean landspeed sized crank from an...

    To be honest I can understand how the before stance can be preferred. In my opinion I believe its the angle of the springer's spring; its tilted up and kills the flow. That being said I prefer this stance, perhaps you could cut some slots in the brace of the springer near where the forks mount...

    My first build: 1912 Indian

    This is goijng to be incredible! Especially if your following those schematics you have on the wall thaat well :shock: Is it going to be just bike or is it going to have a motor in it? That big of tubing is pretty much just building a heavy duty Indian, might as well just throw in a 61cui. V...

    Gaskill's Hop Shop: "The 37"

    Neat truck, very nice 1903 too. Someone stole my 1911 AND my 1873 about 4 years go. So mad, the 1911 was high end comp, best of the best, but that M1873 was my baby, beast of a nail driver too. :cry:
