    I had some spare parts left so I decided to to build a backup bike. My next move will be remove the crank and weld it forward of where it is with some plate stock. should give me a A good foot hold and make it nicer to peddle. I will also make my own custom tank out of fiberglass. Im going to try and keep the seat low as posible. But here is where it's at now.

    Interesting build. How did you extend the fork?
    Moving the crank out front will make the sitting more comfy for you but I've found they make pedaling a little awkward.
    Good luck. Keep us informed.

    I found a set of forks from a mountain bike that was the perfect fit inside the main frame forks. I will keep a build going with pics. Thanks Bill

    That would be fun. How much more do you have to do to it? I see your build thread, got it close enough for pics yet.
