well finaly got a chance today to mock the bike up all went pretty smoothly except for the front wheel that should ov fitted but no it didnt want to so i had to machine the hub and poke the bearings in a bit futher and open up the spigot on the disk then i decided i would give lacing the wheel up a go not the best idea iv had for sure Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad after putting it togeather wrong not just once but a bout three times Rolling Eyes i finaly got the hang ov it there was a lotta cursing goin on
the only real concern is the lack of front suspension Embarassed

freakin great!
i was the only one who voted for the Sporty tank but I see now i was wrong, Cam's tank looks brilliant on there
if you set up the forks nice n low like on mine (mine are 2" lower than stock) then i reckon that would suit it, would keep the bike looking low & of course low is best Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

Great lines Mike, If your going to run that front end Your going to need some more rake in that frame though bud. scratch Prick of a job to do but it sure won't hurt he look of that chop mate. Awesome job Mike just makes you want to ride the shit out of it now don't it. Twisted Evil

At least with the leaf or springer the wheel doesnt have as much travel, and the rear "fork leg" i spose we will call it is stationary, might solve the prob without cutting the frame, plus leaf front ends are cool and not many people have them
