Its the pure definition of hard core on a motorcycle.

If you can zoom in on the scale enough.. it's 350.4kg (772.5lbs). much lighter than I had thought it would be. But I opted for the thinner top since it's primary function will be bolting fixture pieces down, vs fabrication, beating and banging.
Light weight compared to mine. 😂😂😂 mine just over double. 🤦🏻♂️
You would be very surprised how easy it is to build a cad designed jig table using re machined tube split clamps bolted to the table to hold bars in place. Lay tube in the saddle and tighten the top clamp and tubr is locked in place. Easy, very easy to replicate that way.
Thinking about a BFR chassis? . We do have a support group on Facebook to help everyone out while building your buggy! Purchasing the kit is just the start of the build, part of the advantage of buying a kit is that during your build, you have people you can go to with any questions and ideas as you go, you also have me that you can talk to directly as well to make sure your on the right track! It cuts all the hassle of building a buggy and makes the process less stressful and fun like it should be. . I like to think that your going to spend the same amount of money either way, would you rather spend it with a guarantee it's going to look and perform the way you expect, or gamble that your hard earned money and design work is going to meet your expectations? . www Facebook.com/groups/bentfabchassissupport .

Do you have any pictures of the Cliff Hanger chassis as a complete vehicle... I'm sure it here on face book somewhere but I'm an inpatient surfer. Any chance you have a completed one I could sit in? I live in PA but am in Lexington once or twice a year
As things evolve, more and more "shop time" is doing the same things you'd be doing with tools in the shop on the PC instead. When you look at models built in Solid Works, each step you'd do with the real thing in the shop is also done in the program to make it manufacturable. Figure out length, locate bends, determine how the tube will interact with other tubes and be notched.. all the way down to trimming the notches as if you were cleaning it up with a grinder after the whole saw went through. It's a process that takes time, but once it's done, your ready for production! .

Would you choose 16", 19", or 25" of suspension travel? . With the Cliffhanger kits, you have plenty of choices on how you'd like to set it up! Crawling to hauling, air shocks directly on portal axles to trailing arms with bypasses.. every kit comes with support setting up your suspension to ensure it'll perform the way it should! It's peace of mind knowing performance is part of the package. . Did you order yours yet? www.BentFabChassis.com . Questions about your build?

Have a look at the new BFR World Headquarters! . No, it's not a new shop. I just finally forced myself to take a little time between projects and actually do something for myself. It's super easy to get in the grind and just keep piling stuff into your workspace. Before you know it, you realize stuff is setting around that will never be utilized.. clearing the clutter feels awesome, and future pictures of projects can be more focused on the project itself with way less chaos in the background. As we slightly shift gears with my business model Into more and more DIY parts, I know how much time will be in front of those 40" monitors, having a clean fresh space that's comfortable makes the long hours so much easier. . Tearing one side of the shop completely apart was an eye opener to how much had accumulated and how dirty even a clean shop really is. We insulated the walls, put up foe brick finishes behind the computer area to match the back of the shop, and scored on some 30 year old roofing metal from a local barn that was torn down. It changed the feel in the shop in a huge way! I found a killer cabinet to house the organizer bins, did a little rearanging, painted all the tool boxes a matching black, and set up some sweet lighting as well as built the shop a new sign! There's even some new tooling on the way from @wrightcncusa and @weldtables to increase capabilities and turnaround times on ultra custom one off parts and production. . We are going into 2020 with a BANG launching the new Cliffhanger series chassis line and more options than ever coming soon! .

Those chassis lines... . Style that comes from function, it's a minimalistic chassis that's designed to give you an unfair advantage in performance. . The ability to design in 3D and have CNC equipment laser cope and bend out the chassis, gives us an opportunity to introduce elements into the chassis design that just aren't feasable to try to consistently reproduce by hand. It allows us to redefine what a chassis can be and offer it in kit form. . If your looking for another chassis to compare too.. there isn't one. When you see one, you'll realize this is truly in a class of its own. Take advantage of the current preorder sale now through Dec 6th to save $500 if you'd like to be in on the first run! . Head over to www.BentFabChassis.com to place your order! . Hit me up with any questions, I'd love to get you in one. We have additional brackets for suspension for the chassis as well as axles available to take all the guesswork out if performance, as well as many other brackets and fixture kits coming soon. We can also build rollers to turn key in house as well. . #BFR#bentfabrications#cliffhanger#DIYKits#crawler#rockcrawler#rockcrawlingisback#trailkiller#hillkiller#prerunner#portals#portalrevolution#buggylife#buggy#werock#werocklive#supercrawl#ultra4#betterbydesign#wemakecoolkids...
