Default Home built full suspension custom frame pics!

The donor bike and a sketch of how ill cut it up and re weld it.... an old used Next suspension bike.. they typically sold well under $100, this one was free.





Wheelbase and ride height look funky.. before the rake, and swing arm mods




after a rake, and swingarm is cut up and modified for the new rear shock position.


in front of my beach cruiser to check how the motor will mount



Stay tuned, next I will add the downtube and motor plate and gussets. Then, tear it all down, and shoot it before final assembly.. Total money invested so far.. $0, and about 4 hours or work.. not bad. I'm pleased :-)

That thing begs for a Honda Cub clone engine. If you have 17+" clearance from the frame to the tire.

Curt is right rake and trail is important. Rides like crap if wrong. Ask me how I know.

Cool, I like soft tail builds.







Comfort is important, good luck with your custom frame!

Thanks I actually changed my mind on the seat position and cut and angled the rear tube much further down. Now I have the exact same dimensions as my beach cruiser with a low setback seat.
