Q. Do you have CAD files or the plans for the jig and other machining projects for this build?

A. I don't have CAD because I mainly used 3d software just to 'sketch' out ideas. I do have schematics that you can view here:

----------

Q. Do you sell frames?

A. No I don't. I have only completed one frame and I have many more to build before I feel confident enough in the quality and design of my frames in order to sell them.

----------

Q. What mill and lathe do you have?

A. See the Workspace section of this site.

----------

Q. Are you going to paint it?

A. I need to clear coat it before it starts to rust.

----------

Q. Will you make a fork for it?

A. Yes, at some point in the future.

----------

Q. How much does the bike weigh?

A. 19.5 lb

----------

Q. Do you work in engineering?

A. No, I'm an artist in the mobile game industry. I make models so it can be similar at times. But those models don't need to function in any way. They just need to look nice ;) I also texture and paint concepts. Here's a link to some of my art. I think in general, any creative field can carry over to frame building.
