So today I took the bike up to MonsterMetal's shop as i was dropping off another bike for him, and he helped me with my chain clearance issue. One leg of the fork was in the path of the chain on its way to the wheel. So Larry looks at it for a moment, says" Do ya trust me?" I se yep, and he proceeds to cut out the section of the leg that is inerfering with the chain. Then he grinds it a little, and welds in a new piece of pipe that is curved and misses the chain completely. I'll post pics later. I am rethinking my painting of this thing. I may just grind the welds down a little, at least where they are jagged, and maybe even weld some more, just for looks. Kinda like frankenstein's scars. I mean this bike will never be perfect. It doesn't quite line up right as far as being symmetrical,so why bother trying to make it look pretty? I'll always find something else wrong with it. It's definitely a rat, so I might as well let it live like one. Anyone else have any ideas?
