The weight, Hmm. The 24"disc Muni is 17 lbs, the 20" trials 14 lbs, the one pictured in pieces -------------- I don't know yet

Lobbybopster.

I would love to see a detailed 'how to' for your suspension muni and disc hub.

It would probably need to be aimed at an engineering and welding novice to be any use to most of us, but it would be great if people could take a cutdown LTS, bike hub and some other bits to their local engineer, show him your plans and say 'make it! (please)'.

Steve.

Home made stiffener plate made from flatbar aluminium bolted to square steel frame. Attaches to seat post and handle. Needed longer screws. Made after I snapped the stiffener in my seat. Works really well.

I thought I was pretty much giving it away! Just look back at the previous posts and that about covers it. As for the disc hub--- it's a custom job that I came up with based on ISIS standard. Just cut, cut ,cut, and rearrange and weld up. It's just a little imagination, if you want it, make it!

Hey, All. I haven't posted in quite a while but I'm still lurking on the forum in the digital shadows so to speak. Here's my modified Nimbus 36 which I love. My friend did everything in like 5 hours, and I mostly just watched hehe. TIG tacked plates over the fork sides, dark gray paint with white pearl and a clear coat to top it off...I think he did a damn good job.

I just thought my ride needed a style upgrade so no, there was no other reason for the mod except to make her look pretty.
