Love it. I've been wanting to build a 36 for a long time now but haven't looked into it in over a year. Obviously coker tires. What rims? Do all the tires fit all the rims now or is there still an incompatibilty between some vendors?

It looks like you're welding right over the mill scale (I could be wrong). If you are, that's bad - make sure you've cleaned the last inch or so of the tube until it's bright/shiny.

I love how brutal and aggressive it looks! Can you get some more shots of little details such as the fork clearance? I like the way it looks, but it may rub like others speculate.

Flame = 0, Thumbs up = 1.
I was a little worried when I saw how close the DT was to the tire, but you fixed that up ASAP.
I will agree with Walt, cleaning the last inch (or more, depending on the joining method) will go a long ways in the durable weld/braze department. At a bare minimum go over it with some sand paper to get the bulk of the oils and contaminants off. They can cause porosity/voids in the weld as they try to boil/bubble to the surface of the puddle (amongst other things). Steel is pretty forgiving in that area, but the further you get from mild steel (not to say you don't need to prep mild steel), the more you should do to remove and prevent contamination (especially on stressed structural members).

Lecture over, from the looks of the ends of your DT, you "get it". Tell us how she wheelies.
