Ryan Schmidts scooters

Post by RebStew on October 12th 2007, 4:19 am

I think these are gone but after he gets back on his feet without his back hurting I'm sure he willl biuld another one. I figure I've only got a couple more years before my back is done with bikes. someone needs to build one before I have to put mine up for good.

Cool bikes! I have been thinking about trying to build a bobber. Good to know somebody with some experience with bikes.

Stan here is a kit I've had my eye on for long time not the best but a pretty damn good deal... If I get back to work soon this kit may just end up in my garage......

I don't see the kit. Man I love Cole Fosters blue bobber and the bike he built called "Beautiful Loser". Cole's stuff is crazy. Have you seen his latest bike with the faring?

when you get ready to cut the neck give me a shout there is a right way and a way wrong way to do it. You need to make sure you set your rake and trail right, or you will get front end flop and it will handle like complete dog crap if you do not get it right.You will either get it where it will be hard to steer at low speed's or speed wobbles at higher speed's either is no good....

I'll remember to give you a shout right now the biggest problem I see is getting longer forks so that the front doesn't go down to much.

Not sure I'm following you on that one, Try looking for longer Fork Tubes thats all you'll need . Not sure if the company is still in business but it was called "FORKING by FRANK" or "FORK's by FRANK" or buy a sportster front end you can buy any length tube your heart desires for them buy any number of companies...Then all you would have to do is change the fork cups and bearings....

Or Find a old rolling chopper project and mount your motor in it.....Thats probably the easiest and least headache way to go....Sporty chops are a dime a dozen .

It not a problem on finding them It being able to afford them. And If I was going to buy a set of forks I would like to find a springer front end.
