I built this bike last year and road the crap out of it, then started to notice that the frame would crack. So about every two weeks I would weld it up and get back on the road.  I love these bikes but the vibration can be a little annoying the first 30 mins or so.

So I put her back on the lift and chopped off the drop seat and rebuild more of a standard hard tail.  After about 2 weeks of cutting, welding, and some banging she was back on the road with a new frame and paint job.

My buddy James whipped out a leather strap for my riding jacket, this guy does awesome work.  Hope you guys like the bike. Now I’m back on the road and life is good. If you want to see more pix of the bike and the before and after vist www.solocustomcycles.com
