Re: 26" Peddlepower tribute on it's way

Wondering if you can mix and match colors. I would love blue frame with red forks /white decals on both.

Re: 26" Peddlepower tribute on it's way

Took a few days off last week to attend a wedding up in Bodega Bay, CA.
I came back and had a nice surprise. The decals are all ready and are perfect.
Our chromoly tubing arrived.
We actually found the original rear drop out stamp die.
We got the Pro fork drop outs cut.
Tomorrow, we start bending tubing. I should have an update in a couple weeks.

Very cool.
The drop-out die is pretty cool. 

We have a water jet that I get my drops made on.

Water jets are the obvious choice these days. Very nice!

It is. We're using the basic geometry of the Powerlite 26" but with a gusseted diamond frame and a shorter seat mast; low boy style. Don't fret!smilesmile

Re: 26" Peddlepower tribute on it's way

I really appreciate all of the enthusiasm you guys are sharing with me. It keeps me focused on getting this project completed.
I need to get all the bugs worked out before my Porterbuilt suspension is completed for my '63 C10. Then I'll be pulled a different direction.
