Show and discuss your non-rat bikes here.
Thanks guys, I hope to get some riding pics later today and hopefully a video. Gigs has a girlie party tonight so hopefully she can take the pics before she leaves. I've got a few other pics of it from the show over on FBN. I don't know why but some of the pics are blurry, sorry. There's also a little more details about the bike's next phase over on FBN. I'll try to start a new thread as the updates take place. The finished version will be going back to Detroit's Autorama 2011.
that was sick!!
i was going to post me jumping the little ramp i made for my daughter
i would love to run that with a tall bike that was sick!!!
but what i would really like to see a tall bike back flip!
Nothing new as far as the next phase of this beast, but I did try to make the critter rideable. As it turns out the rear hub is screwy, so I don't think the chain set up is what cause the fixie-ish things. I tried to mount it several times as you'll see in the pics. But the bike just didn't cooperate. Mainly it was that back wheel/hub that made it scary as H_ _L! At first I didn't notice the hub too much and was willing to go brakeless, but then the more it rolled and the more I leaned it, the more the hub got goofy. Weird but at least the bike kept me safe. I plan on getting the right wheels on it in the next couple of weeks and then LOOK OUT WORLD!
Here's the pics ....
As you can see it was a family event! Everyone wanted to see the crash and burn!
Chainey, your bike's looking real good.
I've done that ladder thing before.
Truth is that when I returned to the ladder I nearly missed it only to have the whole thing tip over. I nearly got the dang thing crammed.................
Should of had some one hold the ladder like you did.
Yeah I get away with it! The company has allowed me to do it for years. They realize that I'm over there alot and I keep the others in check. When I first moved in they had a theft going on. I told them who I thought was stealing stuff and a few weeks later everything was recovered! Everyone loves having me there. Most get a kick outta my "contraptions". I've even scored a few bikes out of it!
We use to do strongman training outta one of the units. people got a little scared seeing guys chugged around weighted beer kegs or the 800 lb. yoke! Those were some great times though!
Riding the tallbikes while the sun shines on Cape Cod. My oldest daughter Beki wanted to try the tallbike today.
I have a go ahead on a tallbike build for her to paint up.
Thanks Randy. i like the way it turned out. Now I just gotta get some good wheels and courage! Mostly courage! Things are real hectic right now so it may be awhile before we get ride pics. Once I get my initial ride time on it, I'd like to accessorize.
