Nick's New Narrowed Fork Tins

Over the winter Benny was working on a set of triple tree tins and extended cowbells for Nick and his narrowed 41mm trees. Nick wanted the old style tins but narrowed. The length for the cowbells are not available from any catalog so they too had to be custom made. Benny really did a bang up job and we cant wait to see Nick's bike finally done. Keep wrenching Nick!!! We want to see it at Ride To Skate coming up!!!

 The cowbell mounts were extracted from a stock set and were later welded back into the new extended set.
Benny setting up the drill press to drill and tap the side mounts he added.

 After a fair amount of welding and lots of polishing it looks awesome.
 The cowbells were slip rolled from a sheet of stainless and welded up. And yes the ARE tapered!

 Ben also had to make a top tree cover. Also from a flat sheet of stainless carefully cut out by hand, welded, and smoothed over.

 Nick and Brady came up from PA to pick up his new tins. Also Gregg's slab side got a face lift over the winter.
Nick is so happy and couldn't hold still for a picture.
