Hi all,

The new year is well on his way, so time for some extra pics.... The frame has seen some extra welding. The front cilinder mounting, and the tubes that wil hold the swing arm in place are done.

Back part of frame fully welded:


Front part of frame step 1 tack welded:


Front part of frame complete tack welded:


Overview:


Tomorrow the lasercut parts arrive (plates for bracing swingarm and plates that "hold" the swingarm, see picture below)



So construction of the swingarm is next ad also a mounting point for the back cilinderhead needs to be constructed... but i'm not entirely sure how to do it. So more than enough work remains to get the frame finished....

Best regards,

Loek

Well, this looks interesting. Do you have plans drawn up on what the completed bike will look like. I'm sure you do, your just going to surprise of us all at the end, I hate surprises. Looking great, keep the photos coming.

nice work, would like to see rake and trail numbers, as well as planned f/r loading weights, swingarm angle, sprocket to rear wheel diameter ratio, rear shock velocity ratio and progressive/regressive characteristics :D <- some of us here are truly bike nerds

I would also like to see the chassis numbers?   I've always been interested in chassis more than the engines.  Nice work.  I was wondering about the top tube joint  to the steering head tube.  My question, is this the Proper way to join two tubes of different diameters?  I'm asking because I don't know the answer?  Is this the way the Egli frames were built and that is why you did it that way?  I perhaps would have done it differently?

Gentlemen,

First of all, thanks for the nice words :) of course it's hard to deal with the fab shop! it's hard work... my hands get dirty... I sometimes hurt myself... Can you imagine the horror! ;) .....

Off course it's very nice to be able to use a shop like this, it makes the build possible in the first place. I truely respect the people that build the most awesome bikes in their sheds at home.

Very good to see there are living bikenerds here as well!

My chassis numbers so far:

Rake: 24,5 degrees (adjustable with different inserts in steering head)
Trail: 97mm (depends a bit on tire size)
Wheelbase: 1435 (still open to change a bit, as my swingarm isn't cut to length)
F/R weight distribution: To be discovered
Swingarm angle: Have to check the CAD model after the weekend, swingarm will have some degree of ajustment with offest inserts

@50Gary: In general the steering head tube was welded in this way in EGLI frames, my "extra" reinforcement piece was not in the EGLI frames, but my steering head tube is a bit longer/higher mounted than in most frames i saw pictures of... so I made the decision to weld in some extra sheetmetal. What would have been your solution?

Made some progress yesterday with aligning my swingarm (all fits well, no offset sprockets or spoke paterns needed for the chain). So delivered my hubs to the wheel guy today, he'll lace up some nice 18" excel rims with stainless spokes ;D

Enjoy the weekend people!

Best regards,

Loek
