Threw the cutdown project frame and fork into my car yesterday to get my friend Erik the master blacksmith engaged in how to alter the frame according to my ideas.
The 25 to 29 IOE frames are bitches to alter compared to the 24 and older loop frames. To many cast pieces in the later frames, and it adds weight to the bike too, a lot of weight.
Having placed the chassis on some bricks in Eriks kitchen, we eventually got it all figured out. For sure, it will be some cutting. To alter the rake, shorten the rear frame and to lower the bike an inch, at least.
Now its time to start working on a fixture to make sure some of the frame parts stay where supposed to, whilst others move location.
