Rice Rider-

I have been watching your project for a while. Your rear frame resectioning came out well.
I noticed that you welded a socket on for shifting?
That weldment WILL break. Reason is that a socket is hardened steel
and you cannot weld hardened steel. It is the same reason tractor trailer frames have tags on them that say DO NOT WELD. It may look good but a chunk will break out of the socket.

I really feel like if you could get a real chopper frame it would completely inspire you again. What you have now is ok but the gas tank looks too big.
I just feel like your whole project would look better with a better frame.

Remember that www.cycleonemanufacturing.com
they make lots of frames for metric bikes, and the porportions look good.
Check it out just for fun anyway.

Also what that person said about spring seats being for sissy's etc.,.
is WRONG. The reason is this. If you have a rigid frame the only cushioning is the air in the rear tire. Everytime you hit a bump,(big one) all that force is transfered to your disks in your spine. The the nerves can get damaged and it can paralyze you. You wont feel it now but later on when you are 50 you will have problems. I just put a spring seat on my rigid and it is so much better than a foam seat! Only 2 inch high springs.

Anytime someone talks that sissy shit, be suspicious. Tell them to ruin their own body but you are going to take care of yours, so when you get 50 you will be out riding your motorcycle but they will be on the front porch watching the bros riding by,

And I can not argue with either. Unfortuantely Gasoline is eating up all my play money. I am going to ride it at least once as a rigid, just because I never rode one. but ultamately, the seat is gettin sprung! no question about it!

Edit: Others have said that about the tank too. Imma try somthin, be right back.

Well, as you can probably tell from the pics,, I let the thread get ahead of itself. Prior to the shifter,,I, with the most needed assistance from my buddy Corey, (actually he did most of it), started the nightmare that is wiring.

Oh shit!



Had to have a place to mount reg. and ignitor,,,,,had this lyin around.


Hmmmm,,,I can make that work!
