I just started on a new project for...Staids,A custom sled.The bike will have a 20'x4:1/4inch rear wheel tyre combo,a 24'radial front wheel,tripple tree front end,and big 3 peice cranks.The frame is a 1 off custom by me made out of 2.6mm-32nb dura-gal tube with a radius top tube and 68 degree down tube.Can't tell the rake it's a secret...from me too as I don't have magnetic degree gauge,but it feels and looks good,LOL.It will have front and rear V-brakes to bring Rick back from Mach2..OK maybe not and it measures in at a solid 2360mm long.:weirdo:

It will be painted in a urban camo theme...ha ha sorry Rick had to do it.Anyone who knows Ruby will know the colour is going to be Cardinal Red Pearl.Low seat,80mm ground clearance means it's allmost as low as Christo's XE...allmost:cop:.

Anyway more pics tomorrow...Enjoy while I have a well earned Jimmy can after what the Panthers just put me thru.

Nah needs pedals,ha ha ha.Ask Nath after he comes on our next pub ride if there rideable..thats if he can peel himself off his Girlfreind.He he he.

You will have to bring the cans up Cav,it wouldn't be worth it in fuel for me.

i think you have the same BBQ as me.

you should have done a double row along the main member at the bottom to make a shelf type area and put 6 can holders on it. that'd be sweet.
