    BO15 Apache Drag Bike it’s rideable !

    I got a bunch of free old NOS hardware from my grandfathers machine shop (He passed away last fall at 98) . This will be helpful for bike builds and has sentimental value to me.

    Playing with some ideas. Worlds Fair side plates . Nah ? Jet pack in the rack kind of like a Flux Capacitor? Maybe it kind of looks interesting caged. It’s not mounted in the photo it’s just tossed in the rack.

    It’s hard to see how great this works in the photo. I Figured out a great set up for mounting the refrigerator rack to the rear rack .

    BO15 Apache Drag Bike it’s rideable !

    Ok some boring stuff like turning L brackets into flat brackets and cutting down hardware to fit. Still need to trim the tops of the brackets as they are off set screws . But leaving them for now in case I find a use for mounting something on them.

    BO15 Apache Drag Bike it’s rideable !

    My attempt of removing the 4 blue stripes off of a white spoke cover was clearly more effort than it worth . I need it to be all white to replace the orange one on the tank I’m using this for a paint protector .

    BO15 Apache Drag Bike it’s rideable !

    BO15 Apache Drag Bike it’s rideable !

    Thank you for the opinion I’ve been having a hard time deciding on the rack and pipes . The build looks a little cleaner / more sleek I believe with no rack but the practical use is great . And I have plans for the pipes that will up grade their usefulness.

    BO15 Apache Drag Bike it’s rideable !

    Out for a test ride I have to say this is one of the best riding bicycles I’ve been on I’m very surprised & honestly didn’t expect this bike to be so straight and ride so smooth .

    Finally putting the crank on decided not to use the original set up. I’m putting on Schwinn crank arms . Schwinn parts on rat bikes can be like oil and water to install. Schwinn crank isn’t in the parts photo but is on the bike .
