    This was just a simple transformation of my Heavy Duti from grocery getter to klunker. Build thread here.

    Randy,
    Great job on the bike ! I am building a identical frame for the Klunker build off, and really like them !
    Your video came out cool ! I like how you mixed shots taken with you on the bike with others with the camera stationary.
    Thanks for the inspiration with the bike and the videos. :thumbsup:

    That last pic by the big log is the winner. Build looks good, well balanced, solid off-road vibe. :41:

    Maybe a photoshop guru can put them all together? If someone wants to try let us know if we need to pose with our bikes a certain way.

    That's actually a great idea, if I had a computer and knew anything about photo chopping I'd help you out.

    My favorite HD klunk yet! I wonder how hard it would be to make a frame like that to fit 29'er wheels and brakes......
