new build for the winter

Thought maybe I would start a build thread. Not in a big hurry on it. Early spring of 2015 is the dead line. I've got a few ambitious ideas planned for this build. Going with a low style frame with some stretch in the back bone. I took some 1/4" plate that i milled out and welded some tubing in between. Im also thinking im going to drill and sleeve the tubing along the whole frame. Im going with 18 x 3.5" front and a 18 x 8.5" rear. Ill run a springer on it. Ive got mods for the tank planned ect. Its a start to alot of work like many of you guys know.

Your stuff always looks very creative as well as innovative. Your frames definitly have your signature on them and look structurally stronger then hell, can't wait to see the outcome on this one, I'm sure it won't disappoint, keep us posted with lots of great pics!

Lovin' it! great start with the frame...only thing that jumps out at me is the dropseat...having a frame tube directly infront of one's nuts has never struck me as an attractive prospect...keep posting pics, this is the kind of build that makes me want to get out in my garage.

I suppose it could be a ball buster if you crash. I don't intend on doing that. That pavement doesn't have much give. I made some tail section supports out of 1/4" stainless. This weekend i"m going to make some gussets, do some welding on the frame and start putting the motor mounts in.

Nice. Great stance. I,m a sucker for goosenecks and small and raked springers...

Wanna see the handlebars and your posture in the bike.
