Still a backbone, but reall cool design. I decided i am going to chop this frame up and start there. 3 reasons.

1. I was to use original gears lined up perfectly.

2. I want to fab a more aesthetically pleasing design.

3. I wanna put hard miles on this, so i want it overbuilt.


Something like one of Tony Foale’s backbones?

Or something more like Fritz Egli’s?


Would love to see the FEA of your designs.

Jig is up, and frame is in. I hacked out more of the frame than i did originally, and made a solid plan, just waiting on metal now. Motor is moving up 1.5 inches, and will be better aligned. I have to say, with a jig, this is almost easy.

 The plan is new downtubes (again) now that i hacked the steel bak to the neck, new bracing,  i nixed the rear single downtube for two instead, and a new crossmember by the new bottom motor mount. I figure 20 to 30 hrs of work.

To be efficient, i have a couple of untitled damaged honda frames i will source some material from. They will give me some of the bends i need without having to fuck around too much.

Pics to follow.

As long as you have steering head that matches the title, all is good.  Right? ;-)
