Gonna be a quick post tonight folks, as it's been a long day and I'm ready to go hit the showers.
Things to do today...
- tack rear end...check
- miter ss brace...check
- slot the eccentric bb...check
- weld up frame...check
- check alignment...check
- win 20 million bucks so I can build bikes for people for free...nope, not today :(
That pretty much sums up the day, enjoy some pics!
The frame welded up very smoothy, the bead ran nice and hot and washed to the edges for a nice even transistion to the base metal.
Here's a shot of the bottom of the bike with the custom machined eccentric in place. The extra blind hole drilled in the eccentric is to allow you to use a allen key/screwdriver/etc placed in the hole and then leverage off the crank to rotate the bb position, thus tightening the chain.
A shot with the fork loosely placed to give an idea of the flow of the lines and one with some mock up wheels for a better "real world" look.
