2014 Pandemonium Choppers Xs 650 Build Off (Part 5)

I got the frame cleaned up to the point where i could start fitting the hardtail.  Im not using the David Bird gussets because they didnt send any with my frame.  But I dont think i wanted to anyway. 

It looks like the only reason they put the gussets there is so that the side to side tube that holds the end of backbone doesnt move.  I can lug the bottom frame rails.  Fill the outer tubing so that it is flush with the rest, and weld in a new crosstube for the end of the backbone that will reinforce the hardtail joint as well.

Looks good in my head.  Just have a few more hours of fitting and cleaning before i can stitch it up...
