    Default Death Co - The Death Machine, Anybody know the frame specs?

    Like the title says...

    I saw The Death Machine featured here a while back and have always liked the proportions of the bike. There's really no info about the frame that I can find anywhere so I was hoping someone might know if it's an aftermarket frame and/or what the spec's are for it.

    About all I can gather is that it has +10" forks.

    I'm sure somebody can tell you what frame it is, but it's 100% aftermarket. I've seen the frame before but can't remember who does it.

    If that front end is 10 over, the neck is also raked I'd say, sporty tank, cobra seat, pan oil bag, 4 speed ratchet, 16" rear wheel Bates headlight. Hard to tell seat from here, but it looks like a standard job. Hard to tell but I think front end is 41mm.

    why not just find the guy who built it - on social media, and ask him;
    "...Enjoy The Death Machine built by Death Co.'s Dan Dellostritto!"
    "...It’s been smooth sailing since (knock on wood)." -Dan Dellostritto Columbus, OH / @ _DEATHCO_"

    If I had to guesstimate with my thumb up and one eye squinting looking at the picture, I'd say 8 up on the tubes,4 in the backbone and 35* on the neck?

    Thanks for the info guys... I'm not much for the social media but I did google the guys name but didn't find anything. If you know of any similar bikes w/ frame info I'd be glad to hear about them.

    Does ya means 35? An asterisk is similar but holding alt while typing 248 gets a real degree sign when ya release the alt key.

    It’s not magic, it’s just ascii.

    Try Paughco's.... Ask them what they suggest?
    ‘Swedish-Style’ Straight Leg Rigid Frames
    http://www.paughco.com/2008-catalog/...20Paughco.html

    After looking at the frames on the website i'm gonna change my gestimate to 2 out 4 up considering the rear legs are on plane[straight line] with the backbone but still 35 degree on the neck....good luck!

    I actually asked Dan this a while back, he said he didn't know. He knows it's an aftermarket frame, I'm guessing a Paughco, and he said he thought it was 4 up 2 out. Also, that's a Mullins 39mm super narrow tree setup on his front end, or at least that is what Mullins claims...
