moving on...

I did not like the look of the original front fork ,the they do not match the look of Alen's main chassi so , i got on line and found an iilustration of the subject and made a new fork , this is a 1st try ,i will make a new one .

I asked my friend yoav hozmi to help me fix the chains so they will look less tensioned ...thanks yoav ,the left ones are the fixed ones, they look alot better i think.

Front fork is done...

after a lot of trile and error this is what came out...
i think it fits well with the main frame , this is only a dry fit ...
i am thinking on redoing the rear frame like the front .
some pic's:

Moshe

Those new front forks do indeed look much better than the flat ones in the original kit, and I am sure that if you do decide to do something similar with the rear forks that will be a great improvement too.

Then there are the handlebars, and... That's the trouble, you make one change and it leads on to so many more!

Best wishes,
Alan

Brilliant, not sure from the photographs but it looks like there would be some fuel that could not be used, just the angle seen?
