Create a build off diary here for your DFBO bike.
Thanks for the comps guys and thanks to Kustom Kreator for the pics.
It made its maiden voyage today...and nothing fell off.(first time I've been on a bike in 15 years)
The shifter is only 'momentary',the harder you pull the ring,the lower the gear.Relese the ring it returns to high gear.
The painted rims are easy but take a lotta time.I painted them when they were new hoops.Use painters tape ripped into about 2" strips all around the side of the rim,then use a single edge razor blade at a 45 degree angle between the flat and the side to trim the excess tape.
The rake on this one is way cool. I like thw way you did your wheels too. A lot of patience!
Is this a 26" wheeled creation, or does the truck in the background just create the illusion of not so big?
I like rats and this one is very nicely done!
Hey thanks rat,Yeah its a 26 incher.
The seat height is 30" and I'm 6'2"...maybe thats why it seems smaller.
Hey Thanks guys.
And I also gotta thank my fellow Rat Rodding bud from back in the day Marc Hoffman for grudgingly welding it up for me and then throwing the frame in a trash can when I wasnt looking.
We're cool like that...and something about 'paybacks'...
Awesome bike. I had an idea for your shifter. Could you attach a hook to the frame so when you pull the pin to change gears you can hook it in the "pulled" position. That way it would be less "momentary". Great job on the whole bike. I LOVE the wheels and the shifter.
