Ok I have now finished Ed's bike. I have started the project as of yesterday. I have been gathering parts from all over on my bike and i have had a few strange looks along the way.
but I have now got most of what I need to start.
I have started with the best bit had a good afternoon with the grinder I have cut the headstock from the frame that I had in the garage.
I have been scraping around looking for stuff to build the frame with I have done quite well. I have got enough to make the frame but I will have to part with some cash soon as I need some 8-10mm plate but i will try the scrap yard up the road first as I think it will be about £50 for new. I am keeping to my budget so far £0 as i have sold some of the car parts and I am still in credit
. This weekend I want to get most of the frame parts cut ready to be assembeled. I am aiming for a rolling chassis by end of march hopefully but i have to make everything.The frame is offically the start of it for me now.
Parts that I will be using so far
rear hub - rear drum brake from car bolt on
rear wheel - modified car wheel and tyre 15"
front wheel - rear wheel off bike 17" as it came with everything including tyre.
fiesta 1.8TDDI engine and gearbox
drive to rear wheel - MF35 PTO belt drive gear.
forks ? heavy duty springers I have got to make them.
Frame - reclaimed 40mm box section and some 100X50 that I had in the garage.
