Thanks for posting.
I wonder why there hasn't been any update since late 2014.

Yeah, I first stumbled upon him 2011 (?)...he has always updated super slowly. I've been wondering for a while if he just gave up on the project.

Looks pretty. I'll be curious to see him roll out those large sweeping, non-constant radius upper tubes. I'd call up Sharpes and beg to get them made on their Nissin bender.

Hey guys, updating my site is usually the lowest priority on my list but I haven't given up on the project. I did roll out the top tubes with a manual tube roller with a big wooden jig to make sure they were only bending in one plane. I'm currently adding the first of the suspension brackets and only have a few tubes left to fit on the main frame. I'm hoping to have the frame ready for inspection by late Spring next year.
