A little mock up

Got the frontend on and man is that 6 or 8 over fork tubes!? I have the 2 over on order and that should bring things down a bit but still have a little kick. Need to make a race for the neck cause I want to run that XL/FX frontend and it is a 7/8" neck stem but the frame is a 1" neck. Yeah more work...alot more.

Got something done finally!

Took the Queen Bee over to my buddy Ben's place and welded on the hardtail this past week. Everything worked out well, we cooled the welds the whole time and it turned out great. You can see that one of the gaps on the bottom was wider than the other side but a little build up of the weld solved the problem. The frontend is a 6" over but I have a 2" over on the way so the nose will go down a little but keep a little bit of a kick up. Thanks Ben for the use of your machine, some beers and good company. More to come sooner than later I hope.
