frame braces normally do look stupid. i drilled two 3/4 holes in the og tank so they will both fill from the top, but for the rear of the new tank i'll probably run some sort of external hard line, i never really know until i do it. gonna try to finish up the welds during baby girl's nap time.
i haven't even held the forks up next to this frame yet, i just thought of using them last night. i kinda think they'll be too long though, i would need some sort of lowering straps. rebound and compression adjustment would be nice though.
