Well mine's running. If it had a chain or any kind of brakes, I'd be out breaking the law with it.
Keith, the guy from the USA wired it up while he was hanging out at my place after the mega ride debarcle.
Started first go.
Ive been trying to upload video but they're all too big.

How is yours coming along mate. I havent seen a post here for a long time

Both need to project an essence of suitability, practicality, function and righteousness that has no stand for mediocrity or aesthetic blasphemy.

Geez mate that stinks, i only ever recommend them because ive had such a high standard of service. Seriously ive never had to wait longer than 5 days for anything from them and the proprietor (Terry) always gives me information about whats happening with my purchases, shoot even when i throw a curve at him he responds quickly and cost effectivly. Sorry to here youve had a bad run from them.

of course ive not bought anything in a while (over 12months) so i guess things change.

Good luck with your bike mate, its coming along nicley and iam sure the set backs wont mean near as much when youre out profilin.

Had to go back to the begininng of this thread to suss out what your frame is..Amen ? what gives it away as an amen, i am just wondering because i picked up a roller today and it looks a dead ringer for your frame, same rake etc...there is one difference and that is the axel plates have a round/keyhole type of thing cut into them...any clue as to if these are Amen stock? Cheers mate.

pic of the frame (not trying to jack the thread, just hopin you got some knowledge on this)

Thanks Chewi, I was just about to say that.

Had a bit of a search around the inerwebthingy and came up with the advertisment pic for AEE over on the hondachoppers.com
This here is the link
http://www.hondachopper.com/gallery_mis ... e_ads.html
notice the same gussetting around the steering head, the bottom frame rails also have that long kicked up section too (I suspect this enabled you to do a straight swap from stock to chop using the standard 18"wheel).

Anyway as both Pigbody23t's frame and i seem to share the same geometry (10' out and 6 stretch") and gussetting (Ooohhh i like your gussetting edna is it AEE?)i think both frames are AEE.

a quick look revealed that Amen have a distinctive stroker bar under

Apparently these frames (AEE) were also sold under the C&G monika too......

Got a March 1977 Custom Bike Magazine here with an Advert for C & G Mfg. Co, which has a pic of their "Custom Rigid Frame". 1" Rake & 5" Overstock. $169.95 US !!

Looks exactly the same as what you have. Got those distinctive Engine Plates & same gussetting.

My Scanner is out of wack, but if I can get it up, I'll post it. (Better rephrase that!??) :D

So I'd say you are on the mark!

Well I'm looking forward to seeing it finished, and I hope you do something with the front guard !!!!
Ive just need to re-do the rear brake lever and linkage then it's ready to strip down for final welds and paint.
Still not sure what colour scheme or what cost. I liked Pommys suggestion and it would be a pro finish but I want to stop the funds going out the door as well. Im thinking black semi gloss frame with semi glass silver everywhere else. Rattle can extravaganza
I might even revert back to my original plan of shades of black all over it. but I probably wont, either.
