Yeah, I am. I specially got them actually. Not everyone's cup of tea for sure, but again, it is kind of a bucket list thing. I'm just hanging out to get it back home, put the front end on, and see what the lines are like (I have a feeling the tubes may need to be cut down a bit).

SOOO COOL! We are finally there - thanks Woody man, it looks great. Now, about those tubes...Any chance of a photo directly side on without the frame on the block of wood (so the whole weight is on the forks)?

I imagine that Woody has the lower frame rails level with the ground & 4 inches above it. Are you talking about cutting your fork tubes?

Nice job on those plates Woody. So much better than just that normal triangle shoved in there.

That bike looks great Woody! Nice job.
Excuse my ignorance, I see 2 extra holes on the axle plate. I'm assuming one is for a fender stay. What's the other one for?
