Default Re: New rider with custom chop

So some progress has been made on project Baby TZ. Im fooling with the shock trying to lower the bike a little right now.
This is what has been done: Cut girls a malibu cruiser, welded a top tube and a lower newsboy style tube. Then cut out a cartridge bb to put it on the TZ. As I was fooling with it, I decided to cut slots and re-weld to bend the down tube down and then back, did the same for seat tube. I fabed up a rear motor mount. I think that there will be room for the jackshaft no doubt. I chopped the rear, jackshaft bearings for a pivot with welded original rear triangle. Reduced the angle of the r. triangle and added center support. Oh yeah, made a board track style tank for now, i'll be trying out options for that. I was on the edge between the two before the start.
Please give me some feedback cause "im goin it alone"!
