Bike is still on the back burner, but I did just buy another motor that doesn't have damage due to a grenaded crank bearing, and even runs to boot. Next update in another 5 months lol

well I lied, its only been 4 months or so since the last update, not 5 haha. This project has been back on the brain a bit. Ive started the process of doing some actual design work, and if all goes to plan it will have a fully custom built frame with a kz550ltd titled neck (cuz I have one) This is just a very rudimentary first sketch to try to get a basic idea of where things may land. My first order of business is to get the rake and trail where I want it so that I can begin the process of building the springer front end. I have some reading to do to make sure that I have the rake and trail at the minimum of a non dangerous level. In the pic it is 25 deg of rake and 2.53" of trail.

another part of the challenge is that I picked up a pair of xs650 rear rims to lace up. I like the look of 18's front and back and will probably go with something like 100/90-18's front and back. Im lacing the front to a titan drum and the rear to an rd350 drum hopefully. Lots still to do, but im still plugging away little by little.

Forgot to post this as well, through the magic of the "DTT postal service" I picked this up for a song. Planning to hack it up for the front end

That's awesome, and makes me hate you at the same time.

I took a wrong turn and just kept goin'
