    I'll have to follow this thread. I was hoping for some info on these too.
    What sort of power and accessories are you adding NastyG?
    Hope it goes together for you without problems.

    Can't beat an in-frame tank for style points. Purpose built solid front mount. Horizontal rear drop-outs for a nice no-idler drive chain.

    That is a great Combo deal, I wish I had the bucks to pick one up.

    Make sure you post lots of pics and details of your build please :) I'm curious of the fit and finish.

    Their dropouts look flimsy and the frame is an odd geometry. That's just my opinions tho.

    hope this frame works as good as it looks !
    Flight risk this will be my 5th build and yea I will be taking pics one of the things I wish I wolud have done on the others GTB Gurbee (not to brag but the motor I got on my panama Jack 2011 build hauls my BIG ASS top speed this season 33.5 recorded with on board GPS thinking about setting it up with that motor not sure yet
    Killercanuck style points was what made me get this frame I wish I would of had the money to get one had to bend the plastic (still dodgeing the wife on that one) but it's ALL about the style
    The Aleman The geometry "they claim" puts the carb level position I've was hoping for I'll let you all know got my fingers crossed

    Let us know how the frame is. I am curious about these frames. An in frame tank is a nice option to have.

    This is the aluminum version of their GT-2 frame, which has been out for a few years in steel. I have one of the steel frame GT-2's and have been very pleased with it. There are really only two things I don't like about the GT2, and they're not strong dislikes, just minor points off.

    1) The fuel hole is small. Using a funnel is required unless you don't mind spilling a little gas. Perhaps the GT-2A corrects this, but I doubt it.
    2) The frame is a little on the short and tall side I'm 6'2 and always feel like I am sitting higher and further forward than I would like. I have a setback seat post on it now though and that seems to correct the problem.

    I'd consider getting one of these frames to replace the one I have it it wasn't for the cost. $300 is more than you'd pay for a GT-2 steel COMPLETE BIKE. Perhaps it's worth it but...well...if it ain't broke...

    For comparison, here's a link to my GT-2...

    Maybe next week? How assuring that is.
    Depending on what style you're looking for, instead of a setback seatpost, you could do a banana seat. I like mine, as I can skooch back and forward, as wanted.

    Those Monark forks are great...you just have to make sure you get a set that has been re-done. Norm from Venice has some in stock that are re-worked. He also has adapters for disc brakes that will fit them. I have a set and I dont think there is a set of forks that looks as good as these.

    Here is his listing for them http://motorbicycling.com/f23/heavy-duty-monark-forks-correct-headsets-33755.html
