my new fork/chainstay fixture

the last rack for the kona ute used up ALL of my rack tubing. somewhere around 70ft of tubing went into that!!!

so without any racks to work on, i took the opportunity to build my fork/chainstay tacking fixture that has been on the drawing board for a while.

i plan to tack the fork in this ghetto fixture, then alignment of the fork will be checked post tack on my bringheli alignment table, then i should be able to finish brazing it out of the fixture.

bc i plan to build my frame jigless, this will also double as a fixture to hold my chainstays in place for tacking. i will need to make some accessory for it to clamp it to the BB shell on a completed front triangle. ill do that when necessary!
