    Managed to get the handle bar cut and a piece of tubing inside that had a tight fit so everything was straight. Clamped it down to my outside workbench to keep the back and forth lined up and left a little gap . Welded up the gap but this cheap welding wire gives off a lot of splatter luckily it...

    Not much accomplished just some figuring out.i like the look of the thicker tube handle bar but the knurling is in the wrong spots and feel a little too wide. Was looking at them tonight and realized that the stem is like a 1 1/4" . Each knurling is about 1/2" and if I came in the other 1/8" on...

    Getting close to painting and I am liking the look of the bottom pic. If I could find someone who can draw out some flames it would tie in with the Electra flame tires I'm using. Almost forgot about a bracket for the brake arm cut something out drilled a bunch of holes close together. Then used...

    Got some wire and finished up the welding. Got a little bit of body work done yesterday and today. It don't look like a lot of progress but took yesterday and a little while after work today. I also worked on a tank first I made a template out of cardboard marking the holes for the tabs...

    Watching you move the dropouts up and down I was thinking that would be a good way to add some shocks or something to raise it up and down.

    I haven't had much time to work on my build but did manage to get the old dropouts cut off and the new ones tacked on. Also started to tack stuff up before I ran out of wire in my welder. Forgot to take a pic of the dropouts tacked on . Don't have a lot of clearance but these tires are 2,325 I...

    So today I wanted to get the gussets for the rear dropouts cut out so I broke out the grinder with a cut wheel. Traced it out on some cardboard and cut it out then transferred that to some metal then cut that out. Might as well give the fish a tail. Tried a different set of forks I think they...
