Brat / Bob
« on: Oct 03, 2011, 15:26:28 »
I don't know what the hell to call it . I wasn't gonna put up a build thread until I was into it a little more . But what the hell I need and respect alot of your opinions and advice . So here goes .
 
The day she came home
 

 
Cutting the swing arm for a 4 in stretch
 

 
welded up
 

 
bolted up and on the ground
 


 
before cutting the frame
 

 
After
 

 
Kinda a rough idea what I'm going for mocked up in PVC
 

 
 I'm now at the point I can start tacking the DOM tubing to where I want it . can't really get anything done untill I get my Cadillac put away for the winter then hopefully I will get more done . Thanks for the look and any advice .
 
Kevin

So last night I got everything pretty much tacked together . I also played around with the tank position and set the fender in place to kinda get an idea of what I want to do.

Is this what they call a "konged" frame? Pretty cool, pvc is a good idea, totally gonna gangster that for any future frame mods.
if I can I only buy rearden steel and danconia copper.

I think thats what it's called . The pvc was alot cheaper in case I screwed up . LOL

I'm thinking just using a steel gusset at the rear part of the frame and taking the originals off the old frame and mounting to that .

Hey! I'll be following.
Why did you drill the frame before chopping?
