Here's another quick post. I've been working very long hours (luckily my employer approved a week of vacation time this week) and it will be down to the wire getting the bike ready to ride by Friday morning. So this will be my last post until next week with a post-Dirtbag update.

Here's a few photos of the girder frontend coming together. Hopefully the photos are more or less self-explanatory (I'll try to add brief descriptions)....

Front legs getting notched on horizontal mill...

[IMG]20190727_191703 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

Starting to tack together. The cross bar at the bottom is temporary to aid with alignment and spacing distance. It will be chopped out later as it becomes captured during the welding process...

[IMG]20190728_092855 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

[IMG]20190728_113524 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

The "wings" add stiffness and a little bit of unique style...

[IMG]20190728_165255 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

[IMG]20190728_170512 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

Lower rocker and fork "legs" coming together...

Remember the pile of turned parts. Here's where some get used...

[IMG]20190810_132503 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

Top caps for the fork legs...

[IMG]20190810_114828 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

Finally after all this work I have something I can add to the bike

[IMG]20190810_134138 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

[IMG]20190810_153715 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

Those upper links need to be connected, but the tachometer is between them, so a hoop is made...

[IMG]20190810_175213 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

[IMG]20190810_185445 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

And now the frontend is together and on the bike.

[IMG]20190810_153734 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

[IMG]20190811_081504 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

With the DMV and related issues now taken care of and the new frontend added, its time to start chopping! Let the Dirtbagging begin

[IMG]20190811_104525 by andbike, on Flickr[/IMG]

20190811_122915 by andbike, on Flickr

Stay tuned for more updates in a week or so.....

Have you ever ridden a bike with a front end shaped like that?

He may be the only person who ever has!

Fwiw, I think it's brilliant. Heavy and complicated, but still brilliant. Baffles me just trying to figure out how it works. Can we get a video when you have time? Maybe a go pro pointing out over the front end?

I know who hossack is, and I suspect julian may know. I meant more about the shape of the fins.

I've now ridden about 370+ miles on the bike (front end). Although not perfect, it rides very well for something I designed and built in just a few weeks. Full Dirtbag Challenge event/ride report coming soon.

Uh hum... I can say that I did jump in the river in my underwear and it felt great after riding all afternoon in 90+ degree heat... but I happened to be back on shore when THAT photo was taken... so no Forkless ass in the photo.

I like the plump bottom in the lower left hand side!

And I looked and behold a pale horse. And the rider's name was Death.

I'm hoping to put together a full Dirtbag Challenge 2019 report within the next few days. Until then, here's another teaser photo
