I really like the latest configuration. With the solo seat and the p-pad.
The "bug eyes" are growing on me.
It's your bike though, don't let us monkeys tell you what to do. Mike

Thank you Mike. gettin' there... is half the fun even with all the unexpected road bumps along the way Do you guys have any info on this bracket? I'm wondering if it will be strong enough. Ive been thinking about making some from hacked up dog bones to bolt on...

That bracket looks plenty stout JPT. Unless you want to narrow the light spacing I would use it as is.
Nice going on the bike.

It might flop some on bumpy roads, but I had a bracket made out of the same thickness on my Pan and even though it seemed to shake a lot it never cracked or broke.

Thought about flipping a clutch perch, next was to grind on it a bit. My chopper has the same clutch setup so this bike will also, it feels great & is easy to manipulate to get more pull & free play but that is another conversation. The front brake perch needs to be cleaned up some more...

The old paugcho frame had the mechanical brake crossover hacked on when I got it... This bracket for the juice brake got done also, I needed the long slot to adjust around the sissybar tab... Im gonna hold off on rear spacers so sprockets & chain will be straight.

The bike feels like a solid roller now so next I will deal with the brakes. I never messes with the front brake on this thing yet but got lucky, I cut the housing down on a older cable to fit and the front brake works well. Next is to gather up the rear mc, brake lines, fittings & stuff...

Added these to the frame for passenger pegs. Also had to change out the 7/8 front end bearings to 1 inch, I could feel a small amount of wobble in the front end when it was all tight with the 7/8's.... with the spacers & 1 inch bearings the amount of play went away. In that other thread about the bearings a few weeks ago Scott said something like a 2 degree difference? maybe that is what I was feeling up there. I never knew what exact girder this started out as but after looking at Jerry Greers Engineering it looks to be a 1939 Spt Scout.... ? what do you guys think?

I don't think so. From that pic, the bottom of the legs is too narrow compared to yours. Could be a version though.

Still love this bike. Dig the crazy look.

Wonder what a rigid mounted crazy franks fender would look like on this thing.....
