Here's a simple project thats starting to become a big project, but I like the way it's evolving. I scratch-built the wider forks & triple trees from plastic & aluminum to accomodate the fat tire look. I widened the frame & braced it in preparation for.... <heh-heh....>an engine that's a little "different" from what you'd expect. Don't mind the huge rubber band holding it together. I'll removed it before I paint it..... :wink:

The current triple trees are just templates. The actual ones will be aluminum. The handle bars are also roughed-in.

In the past I've done Weber-carbed slant sixes, a 413 long ram in a Deuce, a Hemi powered motorcycle, and a straight six Jaguar in a T bucket. And I promise THIS will be just as ....weird. Here's a link to my inspiration for this build.
