And the rack. He would be the hardest tourer of them all. I see your carbon 29'er and frame bags and raise you a one speed klunker and bungie'd on mil surplus canvas bags.

I am curious how it rides without the springer fork now. Did you reuse the original blades or is that a replacement fork?

That's pretty funny Wes..

I liked the rack honestly, it was pretty cool, but it was all bent up and pretty thin. I don't think it woulda lasted on there. I agree it'd be sweet to tour with it, but holy hell it has a big gear on it. We should get a group together and build a few more then attempt the colorado trail on them

The front fork is the one that came on it. the chrome bits were just there for show, it wasn't a springer fork. I am sure it'll ride like a buck board...

I have to wait on pedals and a stem though.. I am not sure I have time to get to community cycles to dig through their boxes today, but maybe early next week or if they are open this weekend.
