My BMW Bobber,
CAD version here
|In the last few bikes we used hidden forkstops, on this one
I wanted to do something different. First we marked the spot where
the forks hit the frame, and drilled a big hole all the way through
the frame. Aad machined a steel plug and asked me to test fit
it in the frame, and ofcourse I dropped it in the top frame tube....
We had to lift the rear of the bike up high and fish around with
a small magnet to get it out, when we finally had it Aad said
it would be wiser if he test fitted it himself this time, and
ofcourse he dropped it in the frame too! Yep, definitely professionals
at work here;-) Anyway, we machined 2 white nylon plugs for the
forkstops ( the frame will be white too) to protect the paint
and completed a fully visible forkstop that looks kinda cool too!
