MILLENNIUM FALCON said:I spent about two hours tonight working on the bike. I put the engine back in and bolted everything nice and tight. I had to make a few custom engine mounting bolts on the lathe. The stock bolts didn't fit due to my new mounting points. Everything is lining up good...........so far. I also started de-tabing the frame. I didn't go to crazy with the grinder because I'm not sure exactly what direction I'm going. Do I want to go with the more modern dual sport look? Do I want it to look like a tracker? Or do I want it to have the vintage motocross/scrambler bike look? I just cant decide. TO MANY CHOICES!!
That's cool, as I said just sayin' what my eyes were telling me I ain't got a clue about structural stuff which is why my frame and other structural things are stockMILLENNIUM FALCON said:Yeah Im am thinking about making it into a trellis style frame, but mainly for looks. The tubing I used is extremely heavy. compared to stock frame rail I already stood on it and jumped up and down to see if it flexed any. I'm not saying it couldn't give, I just don't think my skinny but bouncing around on it is going to bend it. Also this is going to be a solo bike so there won't be much weight over the rear tire.
