Change of Plan parked in front of brick wall

This bike was 2 years in the making and went through around 4000000000 direction changes throughout the process.

It started with a donor hardtail frame that had springers, a god awful tank and an engine that we had no idea was any good or not. 

After starting work with what we had and changing to a one off upside down front end and buying lots of parts (thanks to Carter Harris of attitude cycles for all his hard work and guidance) we decided quite a way in that it sat too high and just wasn’t working.
