    Well....time for a new build. I hope to have this one completed by summer. Oh, and thanks again DMB for the sweet frame!!

    Bicycle:

    Dyno frame
    Marzocchi Drop off Triple Clamp Down Hill forks
    DMR Revolver 20mm thru axle disc brake front hum
    Dam Good Engineering dual disc rear hub
    Wide pedal cranks from Pat @ SportsmanFlyer
    Layback seat post from Pat @ SportsmanFlyer
    Ghetto Bikes gas tank

    Brakes:

    Hydraulic Front w/ 203mm rotor
    Mechanical Rear - will determine rotor later

    Wheels and Tires:

    Alex dx32 downhill wheels 36 spoke
    10 or 11 gauge spokes - will drill wheel and hubs to accept larger spokes
    CST Cyclops or Hookworm Tires

    Powerplant:

    212cc Predator
    Billet Flywheel
    Billet Rod
    Possibly new cam??
    Governor Removed
    New Springs
    Mikuni Carb and new intake manifold
    Custom exhaust
    Bully Clutch
    Jackshaft - will figure out sprocket sizes later to get a good overall gear ratio

    Most all parts I will fabricate at work and do most of the welding myself. Once everything is mocked up, I will disassemble bike and have it powder coated. I am still trying to settle on a color.

    I will start posting pics soon. For the next two hours, I will be sitting at my computer closely monitoring the bidding war on the forks I want. I am currently the high bidder....wish me luck! Lol

    Got bored at work so I made a tensioner and a jig to keep it straight.

    Nice..
    those Dyno frames look like a Schwinn cruiser frame with a modern touch. I I would have taken some kind of metal shop in school.

    You got some kind of build going on I see. Might want to fit that motor in the frame before you dump all that cash Mike. The 212 valve cover is taller then the old 196 I put in a Dyno. The clearance was TIGHT....with a 196

    Only suckas bid on eBay, you are only driving the price up.
    Put in an automatic last second bid for the maximum amount you are willing to pay.

    I had to at least bid on them. The price was too good to pass up

    That is more of a wish list Jeff. Lol. I will fit the motor before I do anything. I know builds like this change and constantly evolve.

    Is the headset 1 1/4"? I got 1.25 on my calipers. Will a 1 1/8" steerer tube work? Will I need a reducer?

    My Dyno's head tubes measure 1-1/16". They are not a standard 1-1/8" that's for sure.

    Well.....this build and my motor biking are being put on hold. I was recently diagnosed with Stage IIIA colon cancer at the ripe old age of 37. I need to focus on my health and beating this thing. I will fight to bike another day!

    Don't worry...I will still be lurking in the shadows...LOL!

    So your next build is going to be a soft tail then? I kid, but seriously, I wish you the best in your fight. You've got a long trek up hill, stay strong and get well!

    Surgery went well but treatment is kicking my butt. What sucks most is I'm away from home and my daughter. Hope to be back home by the 20th. I'm feeling positive though...

    I used a 1-1/8" headset and turned down the cups as much as possible without making them too thin. Then I reamed out the head tube on both ends as much as possible and then pressed the cups in.

    It took quite a bit of turning and reaming to get the headset to finally fit. There are easier ways I'm sure.....just ask Jeff Wolf ;)

    Truly sorry to hear about the cancer, it's sounds like you're doing well and you are still young which is a plus. Hang in there bro, If I made it to 57, I'm hopeful you will as well. Both sides of my grandparents had deaths from this and similar cancers so I must be doomed :(

    My skin cancer surgery went well for nine hours cutting and biopsy's 7 times. It's been 5 weeks and it looks like nothing ever happened.

    A speedy, thorough recovery to you Mike.....you've got many miles ahead of you!
