Step #3

... Get fabricating!!!

Started the frame this week after a bunch of sketching. Here you can see the down tube getting mitered for the head tube.

The frame is going to have a lugged look to it and should be pretty darn stiff even given the fact it has a single top and down tube.

I am still on the fence as to how much of this top secret AMD build I will be posting but I am feeling like I don't really care who see's the details right now.

The carbs are there as a place holder... still not sure if I will be running 41mm flat slides or some round slides. What do you think?


  1. flats for sure....i had 41mm flat slide keihins (is that how its spelled) on my 76 ss ducati and the thing used to go sideways if i changed into second too hard...they are superior carbs no doubt...but expensive..

    im watching so close chris...

  2. never used flats, but I like the round dell'ortos with acceleration pump very much. give a nice jump when accelerating (even my guzzi goes sideways, but I think it is because of these shitty Avon tyres)
    on the other hand, maybe the dell'ortos are a bit old fashioned and don't fit on a more modern Duc.

    this must be very helpful to you (not) :-)


  3. super clean and beautiful stuff as always! Love checking it out.
