Hey Silver bear hope your weathers a bit better. Shiny is good but progress is better let's hope one leads to the other. There will be some modification to the frame, nothing radical, mainly motor mount issues & any additionional frame supports required. I'll not require any frame cutting, wheel base and height left stock & steering head angle will work as is, it appears. Drive off center stand needs a mount which will add a lot of structural support to the subframe tubes. I really want to retain the original stance of the Simplex. No fenders front or rear on this one & the crash bars/foot pads will not be used either. Minimal is my goal. SB I kinda build in my head & shiny paint interrupts the process. I'll build till it looks right, cutting and welding, adding and subtracting until I get the sum total I'm searching for. It usually looks like crap at that point, but that's when you strip it down one last time for metal finishing & paint (sometimes) and final assembly. The frame looks bad now and will look a lot worse before it gets better...the old Chevy truck I'm working on is a good example of what I've described. I don't know when I'll start building but I'm starting to get a vision of what it will look like when I've finished & that is a big step in the direction of a harmonius outcome! Rick C.
