You can use photobucket for posting pics. Copy the IMG tag and then paste it into your post. Hit enter after each IMG tag so that the pictures are layed out vertically. You can also use the preview button to see what your post will look like. Give it a try, once you do it once, you'll see how easy it is.

Yeah, I know about your shop...I checked the link. Read the question again, your bike isn't de-raked. Then read the manifesto at the top of the main board. Seems a little like you're spamming too, with the 2nd post in a year being a pic of a bike that's not like the one asked for...but "i live about 15-20 miles from st louis i run a shop & built a bunch of tall choppers," seems a little funny.

BTW...Steg ok with the name of your shop? I wouldn't be with it if I were him haha.

I'm just getting old....de-raked bikes are bikes with stock oem frames with a small cut, out of the neck, so the front end can be pulled back just enough to tighten it up (style wise) and then run shortened forks to keep the bike level.....but what the fuck do I know.

And fwiw, this board started as an offshoot of the Jalopy Journal which was founded as a traditional forum...and those bikes look modern to me.

good call. If I want to see new bikes I would go somewhere else!
I was thinking of opening a deraked thread a while ago, as there is very little (that I know off) information to find online.
Recently a friend of mine deraked my swingarm shovel frame by 2 degrees. The idea behind it was to run a 8 inch overstock 33.4mm forks which are in the same angle as stock forks, thus have good handling!
Besides I dig the fucked looks with the front wheel so close to front frame rails! On this pic there there are different forks loosely fitted (no cups yet)
but to give it a rough idea...
Maybe the effect isn't dramatic enough, but maybe with an 21inch front wheel it all falls in place... I just don't know yet!
