Making dreams, reality. One bike at a time

Frame part 5!
























                 Next in line is to wed the backbone to the neck. After some bending and discussion with the customer we came up with this. This allows for a standard frame height and it is raked out to a total of 43 degrees. This puts trail at 10 3/4 way outside the range I like so it is going to have a heavy feeling at low speed. We will come back to this later as there is a way to fix this with standard forks and no rake in the tree’s. More to come on that later.

                 Here it is with the axle plates mounted to the axle jig awaiting upper and lower legs. The rear axle is set for a 4 inch stretch in the shaft. Lines are looking real good.
