    The Saginaw Powerbike-The one that brought me back.

    Haven't got into the engine yet. Inside of the tank is clean but the carb is fouled. (Gas has turned into varnish) It has good spark and good compression. Figure that's 2/3rds of the battle. :)

    Soooooo want that! :) I've had a little time to start in on the bike....What a change a little TLC can make. (Although it still looks like it's been beaten repeatedly with the ugly stick. :)

    1947 Saginaw Powerbike build.

    Bike is starting to shape up. I had to replace the neck cause it broke when tightening the new bars. Luckily I had an old 40's neck down in the basement. I'm actually kinda happy it broke now and not on the road. Pedals I saved from a Schwinn Exercycle I used for a build here a few years back...

This 1947 Saginaw Powerbike is one of the first items he purchased for the new show. (Show airs in Oct) To make a long story short, this ugly duckling now belongs to me...

    The Saginaw Powerbike-The one that brought me back.

    Since the bike now belongs to me, only thing left to do is figure out a treatment. I thought about a full resto but I'm missing a battery box and a few other hard to find items that I'm sure I won't find cheep. I've considered giving it a Military treatment like the Cushman airborne m53 but I...

    The antimope.

    Seems Like forever since I last visited the forum. With the launch of my company (Sinister Laboratories) Other than my daily ride I haven't had much time for bicycles.

    It's been a while.

    Well After a couple "did ya fall of the face of the planet?" emails I figured it was long over due for me to check in with my friends on R.R.B. Last year I launched a new company Sinister Laboratories. Props/sets/costuming and custom creations of all shapes and sizes. It's consumed my life and...

    Skip tooth chain revisit

    LATEST ACQUISITION

    I'd mount it to the rear side of a bigger bike(a foot away from the frame), like some crazy one sided set of training wheels. you could even have it pulling a cat walk. Really cool little bike, would make a great rrbbo trophey. :lol:

    Skip tooth chain revisit

    I've typed this out 3 times and got booted from the forum 3 times. so here's the short sweet version this is what you are dealing with. pins are pinched together, plate installed, the the pins snap back to lock it in place. You should be able to find the plate side based on the grooves in the...

    My role in a 2012 pin up / horror calendar.

    Let me start by saying, i have an incredably gifted friend who shoots pin up photography, as some of you already know. Her name is Dana Brushette, and i just love her work. Over the years, I've built many a prop/set and costume for her shoots and in turn she's taken some wonderful pictures for...
