    Rear End Rig

    Here is the 1 piece BB/Yoke welded up, and the rear rig, ready to fit chainstays.
    About the fork, I want to go with everyones pick, the Argyle, but I need a/c and rake/trail to rig the front. It is a 2 axis move, so I can't fit the seat stays, seat tube, or downtube or toptube til I rig it.
    I will go ahead with the chainstays for now, and post pic's.
    Hey, if any lurkers know the Argyle info, and don/t want to post, e/mail me @ oldschoolwelder@aol.com. And thanks in advance.

    Front start

    I decided to compress the Z1 to 100mm, and lock it, to get a measurement and the a/c is 470mm. A good number, as I have been told now the Argyle is 470, and 475.
    Here are a few pics of the seat tube and downtube fitted, and tacked, and a pic of me.
    Consider it a formal introduction................

    Seattube reminds me a bit of the Giant ACid.

    Looks super sick. Keep us posted.

    What can I say rick, this is an art form. Keep up the good work!


    Don't take this as an insult or anything, but if that person in the picture is you, I pictured you without a beard.
    I'm out of things to say . . .

    good stuff. Rick I think if you make another frame, it should be straight tube 4130 and perhaps 110 spacing, bmx style. Give it uber-clean weld like the one above and keep it raw and you would have SUCH an amazing bike!
