So the tires are close to 24" sized bicycle? Or taller? They sure look good

Thanks Guys, and thanks for the nice solid frame Norm. Racie-The tires are right around 25in. Hsvmick- I did need to spread the rear frame to 135mm. I like to use those auto scissor jacks.. they apply even force to each side. And the hub does have provisions for sprocket mounting, Im pretty sure Pat at Sportsman has everything for the hub ( sprocket, and pedal side freewheel)

Having this bike mocked up is working out great for ironing out issues, one being...I was setting up compression release and throttle cables last night and saw I was going to be looking at a bowl of spaghetti for cables. I made up some stainless cable noodles at work this morning which should help direct them where I want.


@ Mick- as far as a seat goes I'm probably going with a Sportsman seat, I'm waiting to see what Pat comes up with for a Cruiser saddle. I am most likely going with His bars as well.

Hey Chain,, Any new up-dates? I like the wheels & tires. They look very heavy duty.

Thats going to be a beautiful bike! I'm new here, just got my parts in for 1st build in the mail today, a SkyHawk GT2_A frame along with a set of Monark T2 springer forks, also ordered a couple 2 stroke China girl engines (one for a spare) to go with it along with some other misc stuff, got an old Cannondale mountain bike in the barn I plan to use for wheels and stuff. I plan on building it board track racer style like your doing with your Whizzer But anyways I aint even started my 1st build yet and allready getting ideas for my second, I'm thinking a Sportsman Flyer frame like this........

with one of those new Cruzzer/Whizzer engines mounted in it would look killer!

I've spread frames and used RusticoRay's technique. He rammed a 4 x 4 up in the frame as far as it would go & that really spread out the rear of the frame. Then he uses a ratchet tie down to pull the rear of the frame back together. LOL it works .
