A picture from my subterainian lair... A year and a half into the project, not much compared to what most of what you guys do but my first forray into building anything. The girder is screwed I built it too short in my fabrication class, gonna have to try and find one to replace it cause I love the way it looks.

I like short girders too. It's a friends first bike so what I'm probably gonna do is hoble it together with stock telescopics and get it running for a summer or two to let him actually get to ride a little then blow it apart one winter and do your second suggestion and finish the girder so we can get the look we want.

Being the first bike I've built there are a bunch of mistakes I made that I'm going to have to go back and fix at a later date to get it looking like we imagined. Also
how much room is needed minimum between a tire and fender? Cranked all the way forward currently I have 1/2 inch.


Thanks,
Primo

(that's 1/2" to the nearest mounting bolt head, right ?)
Yup I sunk the heads so they would be flush on the underside. I don't think this little 650 will ever hit 150 so I think I'm okay then :)

Thanks,
Primo
