So this is my attempt at the off road build.

I started with a mid 60's Ross frame, commander I think is what @CRASH called it.
I added some worksman wheels I got from @ind-chuckz, tho I didn't intend to use them on this build. I added a 3 piece crank from a Tony Hawk freestyle bike, forks were original to the Dayton Empire Kustom I'm using for Air Force Too.

The saddle is from a box store mtn. bike, seat post from a ladies dragstripper, threadless block stem thing is Jesse James chopper and the bars I'm not sure about, just had them laying around.

I put it all together in one day, I can ride it on the street, dirt, hills, and with the ski attachment it does well in the snow.

Thanks guys, to be honest I really didn't plan on doing this build off. But I kept seeing the cool stuff everyone else was doing, then oddjob kinda challenged me, and I'm glad he did. Riding this thing reminds me of my bmx days as a kid, granted this is nowhere near the trickstar or auburn I rode back then; but it's still fun.

Right, this is the only bike that reminds me of being a kid. The rest are cool and fun, but not quite like this.
Hehe, I know what you mean. Growing up where I did, I am more at home with the BMX Style off road. Bombed out full sized are awesome!!

The other styles are cool and fun, but these feed the Cooler side of my mind for the Off road riding fun.... and when you climb on one and start riding...

Great job on the Finish.!!

Building... riding...

That frame makes a cool looking klunk! If your anywhere near a Marco's pizza put in an order for delivery for me I love that pie sad when they closed here in AZ :thumbsup:
The closest Marcos I can think of is in an area flatter than here, it'd be a long ride with nothing to ramp off of.

I love that you put those indestructible Worksman wheels on it. Nice bike!
Thanks George, I got the wheels for a different project. But I figured if I'm gonna build an off road bike, I better use something strong and light. The worksmans fit the bill just right.
