When Pigs Fly | Front Fork

I have started building my first bike ever. And it’s going to be a motorized one. Having always liked the board track style it inspired me on my build.
Most people around me were saying that my ideas would never work, hence the name: When Pigs Fly

When I started the project I had never really welded before in my life so I couldn’t blame them for thinking I would fail. Still can’t make a decent looking weld but it’s getting better.

Parts used:

  • Ross Girls frame
  • 26 inch Springer front fork
  • 160mm Kreidler front drum brake
  • 26 inch wooden Ghisallo rims
  • Wooden Ghisallo Moustache handlebars
  • Shimano FH-M525 rear disc hub
  • BMX bottom bracket
  • Renthal BMX front sprocket
  • 80cc Engine Kit
