Hey guys...I am still here. I read my original post and I guess when I was typing I was a little jittery and typed too many I's. I was diagnosed with stage I borderline II. I had surgery to remove the polyps and a very small section of my intestines. Thankfully, I did not require a stoma or a bag. They performed a type of an anastomosis where they reconnected my intestines. I had a little bit of chemo where they used leucovorin and followed up by a few radiation treatments. I did have to stay in the hospital until I regained full bowel functions. I am proud to say that I am cancer free, daughter is doing awesome, and my job is going great! I have had to make several life changes. I quit dipping Copenhagen, I now eat very healthy and watch what I eat, I have given up my beer, and just live a much cleaner lifestyle now. Thank you all for your concerns!

I do still have my dyno frame and I am looking forward to starting a new build very soon!

Well...I have finally figured out my front end set up. I have a set of DNM USD-8 DH forks coming and a dual disc hub. I will be running two 203mm rotors up front with hydraulic brakes. I found a set of pit bike twin hydraulic calipers with a splitter. Center hole to center hole on the calipers is 48mm, so....I will need to fabricate my own brackets/adapters. I was hoping I could make the one from AGK work, but the holes on that bracket only measure 44mm...so Hooray I get to fabricate!

I tried posting pictures...lets see if I remembered how to do it!

I am also going to need to extend the rear dropouts due to how I have my seat. Not sure exactly how I will accomplish this, but I am sure I will figure something out.

The forks and hub arrived. Now I am just waiting on the rear hub and wheels to show up. Once that happens, I can lace up wheels and hubs, and get the bike sitting how I want it. Then, I can fabricate and finish the build. My goal is to have it complete by my birthday in February so I can take it to the races at Daytona.
