Dished End Tubing Caps (Sold by the Pair)

  We have had quite a bit of demand for the caps we use to finish the open ends on some of our handle bars. These Caps feature the Deep Six Cycles signature dished ends. And are a great way to achieve that complete finished on an other wise open ended tube.
  They are made from mild steel for easy welding with one end turned down for easy locating & centering in your tubing. For use with 1" or 7/8" .120 wall tubing (not pipe).
Welding required.

Check them out in the store!

A week end frame build - (AKA) A Deep Six Cycles / Hugh's HandBuilt Collaboration

I had a pile of parts and a pretty good idea for a frame. So I talked my buddy Hugh from Hughs Hand Built into hanging out with my raggedy ass and helping me bring it to life. What followed was a long weekend of chopping, drankin' beer, watching hippies dance in the woods, and finding sustenance from the closest source, the gas station...   This is a series of shots to show the KZ650 frame we built from scratch in the late hours of a long weekend...

The only part of the old frame to remain was the neck.

I had a 16" Harley Wheel kickin around so Hugh Drew me up some axle plates for a 3/4 axle and we had em laser cut ahead of time.

We set up some random dimensions, drank beer, eyeballed it some more, and changed everything around until we were happy...  Then we built a quick engine cradle jig to locate the motor mounts...

Once we got the dimensions nailed down for sure we bent up some tube, I tacked em in, and it was game on!

  Right from the beginning I had envisioned parallel down tubes with a fair amount of stretch. Besides looking cool as the day is long it would make dealing with the exhaust a breeze! The left side of the frame had to be wider than the right, so we took the time to make it all just right. 

We laid out some more tube and I tacked it in. We were on track and there was no derailing us now!

Here I am beat as hell and stoked! All in all the initial set up took about as long as it did to put the frame together...

Here she is all tacked up! I still really dig this frame and it should be a fun build!

We had a hell of a week end! I can't wait to spend another week end of long nights, cheap beer, good music with a good friend working like a manic depressive on an up swing to appease the chopper gods! It was a true thrash session with sparks flyin at both ends of the shop most of the time! This is what its all about!

Dixie Roundup & Dice Party!

Man I had a complete blast at the round up! My camera is a p.o.s. so I didn't even bother with it... My phone was dead all week end due to my charger jumping out on the road some where on the way to Atlanta. So I don't have a single picture that needs to be destroyed... The Round Up ruled more than words can capture. The bikes were rad and every one we kicked it with ruled! Big thanks to Garage Co, The Haints and every one at Dice! Huge thanks to the Erick, the B.D.A.C. boys (and affiliates), Flounder, and the Dilly Falcon, for hookin it up so hard! I can't wait to kick it with all the rad mother fuckers we meet when B.M.R. comes around!
