cut lines on the frame and take some measurements. After we cut out the template, place it on
the neck and mark the cut line. I like to outline the mark with tape to make it easier
to see while cutting the neck Heat is the enemy when raking your neck. Avoid
using cut off wheels that add unnecessary heat to your frame. When cutting your neck, I recommend either
a portable bandsaw or reciprocating saw in order to get the job done right. Deburr the cut edge of the frame and remove
a couple inches of the powder coat for marking the plug weld holes. I like to mark 4 spots on each side of the
neck and 2 on top for drilling the plug weld holes After raking a lot of necks, I’ve actually
found it’s much easier and faster to start by drilling quarter inch pilot holes Now I’m ready to use a one half inch bit
to finish drilling the plug weld holes Deburr the inside of the frame so the short
neck slips in easily Slide the short neck into the frame and check
the measurement with an angle gauge. I prefer to use a frame jig to ensure everything
stays in place while I’m welding This particular bike is set up for a 30 inch
wheel and we’ll use an 8 over neck. Make sure the short neck angle is 8 degrees over your
initial measurement. Clamp the short neck to the frame and double
check your neck angle before tack welding it in place Weld the neck to the frame first, then the
plug weld holes. Make sure you move around while welding to evenly distribute the heat.
Remember, Heat is your enemy! Now that the frames cooled down, we can grind
it and prep it for paint and this is what your neck should look like
when its done. if you have any questions give us a call or email [email protected] Ask about our neck rake service and front
