Ok , i got out to the shop tonight and got some more done , i cut the middle bar out for the last time and rolled a new one that matches the tank better , started on the springer front end , added some points to the end of the main tubes and now ready to start on the pivot part of the forks , still waiting for the new springs so for now will have to use old ones for the mock up

FORKS ARE DONE !!!!!! , i had the chance to get in the shop this morning and put the rest of the forks together , i dont have the right springs yet but you get the idea of how this goes , now for the bars i am not sure if i am going with the tall bars of go with board tracker type bars , well that can come later , back to figuring out what fenders to put on it so its time to start digging through the fender box and see what i can come up with , the last picture is where this all started !!!!

I figured that you would knock that springer out quickly. Nice work.

The new frame bar looks great.:cool2:

I like the way the fork and the seat tube are parallel with each other, this thing has some serious rake!
That's what I was trying to do was to get them parallel but wasn't sure if it was to much rake , so far I think it is going to work out good , just have to figure out some cool rear fender now

Lots of folks like them full fendered but I think that bike is crying out for a ducktail...

The RenMan likes the new bar in the frame, and so does SKPC! Nice saddle. Coming along nicely.

Hey Kemp, give us a review on your tig sometime. I have been thinking about buying the Eastwood 200, but some reviews say that they don't work well with thin sheetmetal. Thinner metal for tanks and bodywork would be the majority of my work with a tig.
