Thought I would go ahead and post up a sneak peak on my next build. Gathering parts while I'm waiting on a few things for the Girder Rebel.

Frame is stripped and ready to go into the jig. Looking at +5" backbone stretch. With + 8" rise. Not sure on the rear stretch yet.

This little badge will go in the front legs right below the lower spring perch. ( thanks SS Custom Choppers for the water jet work).

Received my badge today. It cut into 10g. So it shouldn't bend to easy. LOL

Sorry it wants to post upside down no matter how I rotate the picture.

Started preping the frame for the jig. Building an engine jig. Makes the frame think the engine is still in place. Keeps the frame from flexing when it is cut apart. As keeps my mounts in line. So the engine will bolt right back up like it is suppose to. Still have connect the mount spacers together to make it ridged.

Had a few minutes today and desided to do a little mock up. Just to see what it will look like. 6 inch stretch in the back bone here. With about 4 inches rise in the down tube. This is just a mock up.

I kinda like the way it sets. Might put just a couple more inches in the rise. Have to let it set and talk to me a couple more days. More rake is a given. LOL

Spring Perch made. Still have to dress it up and taper ream the holes for the long spring bolts.

Messed with it a little this mourning before work. To get an idea of the Rake I would be needing. With the leg length I want to run.

I bent up another piece of tubing today for a True Goose Neck look. I think I like the curved down tube better.

You doing a tube or plate gusset on the neck? if you're doing plate, I'd go with the goose neck. Tube, I'd go with the curved down tube.

And yes, that might be an adequate amount of rake.

Maxx I'm going with the curved tube. Can you give me an example of what your talking about with the tube gusset.

Frame is in the JIG. 55* rake.
