lookin good Skywalker..
I love those forks...
Thanks Kev, here's the frame and forq put together. It works! Had to fill some space (about half an inch) with rings, but it turns nicely! Been a good day for the rat!
That is so TOUGH looking!
wow..I love it..
that is a seriously turning into a wicked looking Rat!!!!
I have not seen Spring Forks like that since
the 70's style Moto-x ( dirt bike looking ) kids bikes..
It brings back a whole bunch of VERY GOOD memories
of when I was a kid!
keep it up Skywalker...
that is an incredible looking Bike!
Are those the same bikes I remember, Kev? With plastic f ueltanks, looking like genuine motocross flips?
I'm now cleaning an old set of wheels, chrome is a quite stained and the bearings are really dirty.
i LOVE those forks I can see a big old king bee headlight stiffed in there
Oow! Nice one! Does look a bit like mine (see page 1).
But this one 's very very good!
yaa..that's the one Skywalker.
The plastic tanks..and rear springer shocks that BOUNCED
you over the bars when you landed a jump! :shock: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Those were .......'!
Oh, I can't say b i t c h i n ' ...
But no 'flip' ?! LOL!
Today I polished the rims, cleaned the coaster brake thoroughly and put everything back together. The wheels are pretty okay, they're not totally straight, have to do some work there. I never took a coaster brake apart before, but it was a piece of cake ; )
Took the wheels to a collegue this morning, he straightened them out. I've done that once, but it wasn't a big succes, he's got more experience... Thanks, Ronald!
Then I had to put tires on them (probably gonna buy some slicks) and check the bike out. Then I got exited : )
So then I had to put on some handlebars, and I went for my initial idea of using cruiser-style handlebars. These were very very wide, I cut of about 6" on both sides. I'm happy so far.
I put on the high sissybar, but I think it really needs a low one. We'll see : )
man that totally rocks!!!!
That front end combo totally rocks!
THAT, is cool!
With the tank, fork and the big headlight it looks amazing.
The headlight mounted on there makes the bike look tough.
Thanks very much, guys!
Did some more bearing cleaning today (we're running out of used toothbrushes!), went bike-shopping and bought a crankset and a chain, both alloi-grey, nice combo. They didn't have the chrome seatpost I wanted, (just a simple 25,4 mm) but it's supposed to be there tomorrow.
Ofcourse I put the stuff on my bike immediately, but it's hardly rideable without a seat : )
I'm thinking about not doing the Saab-logo's on the tank, so the name doesn't make any sence. Bought two Thrasher-logo (with flames) stickers of eBay, hope they're here in time!
