Got rollin on my big rim today and heres the result so far.A bit of a homage to Kendall Johnson and his chopper style with a smashed down back bone,super low seat,big back wheel and tall bars.This bike sits at 75mm off the deck,2720mm long with a LOW seat height of 400mm off the deck,heaps of rake and some radius curved bars will be made.No Ricky I won't use yours!The back wheel is 18x8.5 wearing a 240 Metz and the front will be a 144 radial spoke chrome 26" with a 2.5 Hookworm Maxxis tyre.

The rear cradle was made using 25NB 2.6mm wall CDSW tube and was 3 pieces per side.Sounds easy but to get them all the same using only a cheap tube bender at home was a few hrs of work!

I have to trim the back end up and grind some welds but it's well underway.

So far...

Drag racers go straight to the finish the rest of those guys just drive around in circles looking for it.

Thanks Nath I may do a molded pan with a MTB shock under it yet but I'll try a few different ideas first...

It will be going for our tour in Shepparton on the Anzac weekend!
