Got a little work done on the cross braces this week. Almost ready to weld up the rear of the frame. All butt joints plug welded. Butt joints have been gaped to allow penetration welds into the plugs and the joining tubes.

Some changes have been made. Will be running a 21" font wheel for sure. Whit that being said. The original springer tree was built off the Rebel's factory front wheel. Since I will be running a Narrow Glide 21" front wheel with break rotor. I am able to narrow the trees up a total of 2 inches.

Here is the new springer trees Cyclopes Style but with my own design. (Cyclopes or Pogo Stick style means a single spring design) My spring perch is also incorporated into the lower tree instaed of have a mid spring perch.

Recieved my Velocity Stacks from Mike at Steel Dragon Performance. He did great work. Really like the look and how they turned out. Thanks Mike.
