In Jan we took off for a few weeks to go some place warm and let the brain thaw out.
Relaxing the brain before the build up starts again. Sometimes I get focused too much that my brain locks out new ideas. Stepping back for a while and revisiting a problem and can shed new light on the subject.
When a kit is purchased through Christini for a bike, you send in your frame and front forks to be modified. They rebuild your frame and powder coat it, sending you back a frame, forks, gas tank everything needed to rebuild your bike. Or you could buy a NEW bike already built for a pretty good discount on the kit.
I didn't have that option so......
Let the grinding begin.
Remove the steering lock stop.
Remove the fairing mount bracket.
Now, how to cut the head tube off? Keeping the head angle and geometry is pretty important. This isn't OCC. I need to this bike to handle hard off road use and abuse, endure long distance touring fully loaded, and be safe at speed.
Not just tooling around city streets from bar to bar.
I started out making a fixture to hold the frame so I could align it for cutting in the CNC.
