So the exhaust is acting as a swingarm also?

nothing redneck about it junior.
Its a full fabbed chopper, I built and bent every piece.
A lot of machining went into the triple tree construction as well as the free floating hub for the single side rear.
show me a redneck that has machining capabilities, until then, stop the hatin'

Call it "hatin'", call it what you will. Props for taking the time in making it but it just looks like you threw a bunch of things you found together. I respect what you did with the time and effort but it just isn't my thing. Keep up the good work. :cool:

actually, I rode it yesterday afternoon. Its different to say the least, it turns easily, you just dont turn the handlebars alone and expect it to respond, you have to lean it to turn it. I rode for about 5 or so miles yeatserday and got where it rode pretty decently, but you do have to get used to it and learn to ride it.
Once used to, i was zipping around and turning 360 in my road in front of the house with ease.
but it was weird at first no doubt. Looks mean and today it will get the arm trussed and a chain tensioner and also the exhaust through the arm. then torn down for paint and polish the wheel both sides.

dude, Iv'e been building rockclimbing jeeps for a bit now, I think I can weld a bicycle frame up.

wanna see more in semi finished state?
still needs weld cleaning, painting and polishing, but runs like a raped ape and is loads of fun.
also, for St3ph3n so he can sleep at night, I trussed the rear arm, much stronger now, so rest easy son, it's all good.
