This is going to be a long build because of part supply, weather, and my other projects. So if everybody would do me a favor and try not to post so we don't stretch this out to far. Try to keep the build on the first few pages then you can post all you want. It's basically a single down tube frame with a swingarm and a pair of coil overs mounted horizontally on top frame rail. Or maybe to the top of the motor. The bike is for Eric Ross. He's tired of riding his Ducati 140 mph on a 170 record. So we are going to build him a bike that will run the number. Dave Bozzie (the son of John Bozzie,builder owner rider of the twin engine drag bike called  "the Thing" and a rider at Bonneville in the '50's) is going to build the motor and the rest is up to me. It's going to be a cross between a board track racer and a neo classic custom. Kinda weird but that's what Eric wants. So here goes...
I started building some of the parts awhile back so some of the pics are older than the rest. I don't work on the bike everyday but when I do I'll post pics. If you have any questions direct them to www.willieworld@hotmail.com.

Here are some more pics of the front frame tube it goes underneath the motor where there is a cutout to clear the motor. There is some reinforcing that will tie into some other frame tubes later on. The reinforcing plate was bent in the vise with a hammer. The notch was cut in the tube on the band saw.

Took some more pics..than took it out of the frame jig today. It still needs rear suspension and minor detail but you'll get the jest of it.
