Im liking you use of angle iron. I like that your mount is also mounting the jackshaft. Now did you cut the bottom angle then bend it or did you cut an angle then weld it. Its kinda hard to tell from the pics, one pic makes it look one way another the other. Well anyway nice bike, looks like it should scoot.

I cut the bottom angle and hammered on it till it was the right shape, then drilled some holes and bolted pieces of steel across the cuts since I'm not the best welder yet.

Nice. It will be strong enough. What is that 1 1/4 by 3/16 angle? It looks like some serious structure.

typing this one-handed please excuse lack of capitalization and spelling errors

going to have to put the build on hold for a couple weeks. today while cutting a piece of fuel line my hand slipped and i sliced open my wrist with a utility knife. got a cut almost three inches long and an inch deep. by some miracle the knife missed all the major veins and arteries, all the big nerve bundles, all the tendons, and everything else important. the cut was so deep that they had to do multiple layers of stitches to close it. now my whole lower left arm is wrapped in bandages and I have to wear a splint for a week. also huge ER bill.

pics for those interested, definitely NSFW, click at your own risk: http://imgur.com/a/tQGov

Nov. 1970 i crossed the tracks, left wrist cut the last 3 tensions, artery, main nerves. Accident at work, 1972 had 3 surgerys at mayo clinic. 1st the recut and fixed the nerves, 8 hr. on the table. Got better than half my feeling back, the rest was tennison work. Works quit well, most don't know until they look close.
One thing for sure when you pick up a knife again you will have that running through your mind, will be never forgotten..................Curt
