Moving along nicely now – most of the major parts are either in stock or on the way !
Mocked up the Bantam forks with the Honda XLR250 front wheel – yep it will all fit. I wanted the style of girder forks that Motobecane [ and others ] use – a banana shape. I came up with a cunning plan to mod the Bantam forks to give that look. Again – POC using a piece of liberated garden hose shows it will work. A bit of imagination required as I ran out of hose ! There will be a couple of functioning barrel saddle springs at the top to add to the illusion – and actually they will add some suspension.
