gotta single sider to build fer a guy , been in the planning stage fer ages , mocked up a few bits , best get started eh ?

make from steel , a bit heavy but i'm more confident with steel welding for the moment

it'll hold a 280 tyre




we got a date, of course in my infinate wisdom i welded some bits before i took the pic

pivot point bits, all milled and bored



pivot tube



the 3 bits glued together

little more done , this is a good idea this forum section , makes you do work








the pockets for the round tubes will hopefully be done tomorrow , that just leaves the section that the dogbones pivot on and i'll be able to assemble the front section .

i'm going for a chunky engineered look , more industrial than pretty , the bike is going to be big , more of a fighter styled cruiser than an out and out fighter , but thats a can of worms i'm bored with:doh:

hopefully you can see from these pics that while i'm getting the chunky look that i want , the blocks are actualy pretty light .
the tubes that join all the blocks will be sleeved at the joins , using smaller tube inserted into the holes

just the dogbone mount and thats the front section ready for assembly

i'll turn up nylon bushes for the dry build , save fucking up the needle roller bushes knocking them out for powder coating

drilled t'other side of the adaptor , so it would all bolt together



chopped up all the bits of tube



which will kinda look like this





i've drilled the holes for the brake disc into the adaptor rather than nuts and bolts , this way the adaptor will be fastened by 4 M12 bolts and 4 M8 , while the wheel will be held on by 5 M14 wheel studs . couple this with an M20 stud right through...... belt and braces



the missing hole will be done when i see how thick the alloy ends up as it's right under a wheel stud

got a rush on now , i need to get this finished , it's one of those jobs you agree to but in hindsight is prob a step too far for how i'm set up , this might not be to everyones taste but i'm trying for more of a tough engineered look than a flowing organic thing
