Hard tail sport 76
« on: Nov 18, 2015, 08:24:49 »
Hi! Started new project a few of weeks ago.
The bike was darn ugly when it arrived to my shop. I didn't even take a pic of it. Wennt straight to stripping it.
The engine is a full rebuilt. Needs to be run in. Both wheels relaced for 16" .
Going to be a hard tail.
A bit of improvisation as the the build goes. We'll c.

Here is a short photo story of the build so far:





This is where I'm so far. It needs to be final welded and then still quite some work on details left :).

Tell me what you think guys.

This is how you build a hardtail. Mean, nasty, traditional. By hand. Even the Firestones fit the bill on this one.

If it were mine I'd call it "Middle Finger"

I can already see that the final product will be stunning.

Thank you all for the good word  :D
I wasn't big fan of hard tails before but I think I really like it now.
Definitely not my last hardtail project :D

Have to say, that is some BEAUTIFUL welding. Great job, all around. Let's see it all finished up and in the sun!
