    hey guys here we go again. with a few gas builds under my belt now why not do a pedal bike build. started with a 24" custom frame,chopper front forks with disc brake, 19" ape hangers, 24 x 3 felt rear tire and matching front tire just need a rim. this goes together quick when you don't have to put the motor in. just a few more parts and should be done soon.

    I think you might have some problems with the bike "diving" during turns. The bottom bracket looks like it has no drop. I had a similar thing happen to me on the frame I am using now. I tried putting a suspension fork on a frame that was set up for a standard one and it put the B.B. up to high. every time I went to turn the bike "dived" toward the direction I was turning [Very unsettling]

    You can look it up in the Bike Forums web sight or in the Paterick bike manual.

    P.S. I hate to be the bearer of bad news.:frown:
