I have a collection of miscellaneous parts and am looking to make a Frankenbike. For the purest, look away.

Here is what I'm thinking of. I'm debating the forks.

Interesting idea...

...a homemade "Hommage"! Here are two similar; I'd suggest the street legal version version with Heft tank. Use the low budget coil spring seat setup, low budget homemade fenders, any R51/3-R68 front end, any post war headlight you have, any wheels you can get cheap, any 24mm Bings you already have...IMO, an Earls front end is putting a truck part on a throughbred?...but good luck with a fun project.

...heads up...

There is a 1936 R5 on flea bay right now, all correct original numbers...I have no personal involvement...
