Dang Woody!!!! You and a few others in this forum prove that retro rules!

If you put a Nokon cable on that, you could lose your brake noodle. Works better, looks bitchin'.

Sweeeeeeeeeet.

Are you planning on fabricating a Custom Rod body & chassis to compliment the bike ?
(all I get is a blank canvas when I try to think on how it could be done)

I see a lot of talent design thought effort etc in your work.

Great selection in all the off the shelf parts you used as well.

Damn.........................just DAMN! good2.gif

Does the F/F builder do frame repairs too? Nicer welds than the last repair I had done. Thinking about having a couple repaired frames re-repaired

hey Woody, what kind of equipment do you need to get the geometry and angles perfect? I have a mate who's an ace welder and fabricator, but is there a specialist piece of equipment to insure the frame angles are spot on?

thanks

I don't know if he does repairs. He does the bike stuff in his free time. He has a regular business that keeps him pretty busy. I know he said this summer he would be swamped. You should be able to Google Greg Melms Designs and contact him.

Matt,

Frame builders usually use a frame jig. They can set all the angles where they want them and know that when they weld, it will be correct.

Thanks!
