So, physical therapy is annoying and tedious. I'm making a little progress every day, but in the wise words of someone I've probably never met, "I WANNA BE IMPATIENT NOW!"

Anyway, I've measured and done mock ups of the pocket bike and a race prepped R6. Studied lengths, proportions, angles. I've come up with a design that's hand drawn using drafting tools. I still plan on potentially putting it into CAD software, just because.

I've also started collecting some raw materials. I have what I need to make the triple trees and stem. I'm seriously considering making the fork offset adjustable with the triples. I guess I'll try making the inserts first, and if I can get those good enough, then I'll do the triple trees to accept them.

If only I could lift the vice and or rotary table onto the mill. Oh well, I'll get there.
