Help with BSA Frame!!!
I screwed up!! As you can see from the pic, I've only got about 1 1/2" clearance from the bottom of the frame to the ground! I don't think thats going to work to well. I realize now what happened. This frame was bought off craigslist, the guy who sold it to me said he got it at a swap meet, and just had to many other projects. The hardtail was already welded on, but was really crooked (the wheel was leaning about 1" to one side). So I cut the hardtail off, cut about an inch off the lower legs where they meet the stock frame, bent and fitted new upper legs, tack welded it all square and true, then had a local weld shop finish tig the joints. When I got it back I slapped the rear tire in and instantly realized why everyone wanted to get rid of this basket case. I think the original owner welded each of the hardtail components on upside down! I layed one of the original upper legs along side the lower leg, the axel would be roughly 3-4" lower, right where it should be! Since this is my first build, I just copied what he did and now here I am. Any suggestions would be super appreciated! Please Help!!!!!!
