i got a set of marzocchi triple T's from the mid 90's to go on it, 20mm thru axle and 5-6" of travel, should give me some more rake and a nice stiff front end!

just finshed the bobber seat brackets, will post pics tomz//

Thats pretty sweet! Are you going to make it only motorized, or will you still have some pedaling power?

Sweet! :)

Where did you find the springs??
they were salvaged from an old sprung cruiser saddle from a beach cruiser, all the parts were re-useable!! just had to weld some nuts to the frame and a hole for the threaded bar to recess down into..

work great, just need to glue some low profile padding and leather and i am away, going to drill 2mm holes at 10mm incriments so i can stitch the leather to the alloy seat pan..

cheers for the comments

OHHH

that is the freewheel mech for the hybriped freewheel rear end, has replaceable pins so you can lock the rear wheel, then unlock it so it freewheels like a normal bike, good for when you run out of petrol ;)

HYBRIPED is made in tasmania
