KZ HardTail

Didn't want the usual straight down tubes like alot of vatos weld in. Here I wanted the seat portion to be a little higher and at a less steeper angle yet still give me about a 2" stretch. Triangulation is the word of the day.

Working the pole with class


7/8 stainless bars welded to 3/16 plate with aluminum cross bar all polished along with upper tree. Mucho worko but worth it.
