Beautiful build, it really looks like a big bike :thumbsup:

Just wondering, personally I mounted a cruiser style handlebar for the 'upright' seating position (also because the bottom bracket is located quite a bit to the front).
Is this comfortable for you? It certainly looks the part!
Thanks. I will eventually bring the bars to a tube bender to have the rake of the bends brought back quite some degrees, at the moment the position is ok, it's not as comfortable as my original bike, but it's still fine, I'm 6ft 1" so i'm not overly stretched. I like the low look, so trying to keep it low.

Some buddies over on the Motorized Bicycling forum are doing great things with their e-bikes which feature leccy motors concealed in the crank cases of their bike's faux V-twins.

These are done so well. This is delightful. All you need now is a good sound system that would blare out a righteous V twin or big single sound whenever you needed it. Of course good for Jazz the rest of the time.

Did I see your earlier bike - the one with the orange tank - listed on eBay while I was searching over the weekend?

Hi-noob here-loving your Porucho build so far-may I ask if you went for 29" wheels this time round to avoid ground clearance/front wheel clearance issues that seem to be a problem on other Porucho builds I've followed? I'm keen to avoid costly mistakes if I go down the Porucho self build route myself. cheers.

Hi thanks. It wasn't for ground clearance as the new ruff porucho frames have moved the bb forwards and up, so no need to worry about that with the new frames. I thought the 29s just looked mean and big but still athletic enough. It's still a cruiser though so when cornering you'll always have to have the pedals level.
