I'm amazed once again. I don't know if I'm more amazed that you can design those parts, or that some one half the world away can make them from your design. Oh well, back to the garage and my hack-saw and file.

Upon returning this is the first thread read.
Wowzer was the first thought after seeing the work to bring forth a new level of creative engineering.

Many thanks to all who contribute their opinions and talents to keep this evolving. It's this level of dedication that provides some of us with the desire to remain riding and enjoying the motor-sickles that sparked our interest as wee tots more that 45 years ago.

A quick update.

I've been super busy with a new job and some additional work on the side, but I managed to find time yesterday to machine some cross tubes for the mid-frame assemblies. It was a good day to be in the garage.

Your machined parts look like jewelry, and inspire lust in my heart.

Super cool. Thanks for not just sharing your project, but all the great photos of the fabrication. I'm often more interested in the process than the final result.

I finally got some garage time and turned a batch of lower frame cross-tubes.

...meanwhile, arriving from my friends in China

...and arriving from Reno NV

Now all of the mid-frame component parts are completed. Next up, I need to build a fixture to hold everything in alignment for welding. Then off to see Dennis E. for some of his magic.

Stay tuned...
