  1. I just recently discovered your channel and have been working my through your videos, from the oldest to the newest. You’re providing a fantastic resource here. I really like your teaching style and the videos are very well shot and edited. When I started learning about framebuilding back in the late 90’s all we had were email discussion lists and a few online photo’s to show how things were done. If a channel such a yours would have existed back then it would have blown our minds!
    I will continue to catch up on your videos, and also spread the word amongst my framebuilding friends about your work here. Thanks for making this available. Cheers!

  2. Good to see more CArD design (see BadMotorsports Mini)

  3. Why is the binder bolt on the front side of the downtube?

  4. 10 lbs down tube, really !?

  5. Bending is hard, let me think about it, pulls out saw…..

  6. Wow 😯
    I guess the guys owes you a bit more than a pizza and a beer 😉
    I was wondering about the second integrated battery too but the weight is already not a topic any more.
    Anyway… cool as always ✊🤙

  7. I just discovered your videos and so glad I did!!! Im going to be commenting and thumb upping all your videos old and new 🙂

    Seems like a lot of weight,
    but a 500+lb motorcycle 🏍️,
    may add perspective…

    I just found this, and content is pure gold 🙂 thank you I enjoy it a lot.

  10. I just discovered your channel today (and I watched 8 videos). Though your reputation precedes you, before this I never put a face with a frame. Love it! keep up the great work.

  11. Brilliant stuff, I’m learning so many things from these videos. I always draw a centre line down the tube first with a sharpie and some angle iron and then end up ignoring it because it doesn’t look right 🙂

    Eyecrometer. haha. love it, can that be used along with the safety squint?

  13. Wow that is a beast. Why the double battery set up?

  14. Hello, where did you get the Bosch Motor mount from? Thanks

  15. Nice bit of work. Thank you.

  16. I build hi power ebikes around 18 kilos. Weight is everything. I use aircraft aluminum.

  17. Very nice videos. The only problem is that youtube puts advertisment videos every two minutes.

  18. Wow, this is amazing!

  19. Amazing build Paul. You are the master and your shop is amazing. Nice motos too.

    Like the small humour in your vids 👍

  21. With the weight of this bike,perhaps he should’nt have gone for the pedal assist,and put the motor in the back wheel,but love the build anyway.

    I enjoy these so much! Thanks a lot for the effort you’re putting in!

    As a hobby frame builder I’m loving these videos! Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge with us Paul. We stand on the shoulders of giants after all.
