Start your RRB Build Off Journal here!
Here is what it looks like now. I used another set of wheels but mine will be black, the wheels have to be built yet. I put these bars on it but they may not be used. The flat tank area will be painted with Jack. I have yet to do the artwork. The frame has to be clearcoated. The crank will be polished before it is installed.
Here is the seat and parts. I hope it works out ok when done.
If you don't end up using these handleb ars I would be interested in purchasing them or trading something for them. Just shoot me a PM or an email! BTW this reminds me of the bike in the Smithsonian that is the Wright brothers bike. WTG@!
I love this bike! its gonna be HARDDD! To vote. Keep up the good work man.
We were Eating Potatoe's..drinking Cambells soup...
and Blowing up The Old Lady next door.
..you know, the usuall Friday night Stuff.
The tires came from Nashbar. As for the fork and head tube I have not put the whole thing together. I will try now and see. The head tube is not the same as most older balloon tire bikes. The headset is like an old British bike style. I can also shim it up if needed. I will send a closer pic of the headset and tube when the frame is finished. I put the seat together last night. The cover is had to get tight. There is still a few wrinkles in the top. This is the first time doing a seat. I will post pics later. Most of the work on this bike is the first time doing this. I have a great teacher and he shows me how to do it before I attempt it. Most of the work is simple though.
I have been working on the bike and now have some pics of the wheels and Jackz panel. The wheels are the ones in a previous post that were silver and now are black. It was easier than building the original rims into wheels. The original rims were a little too rough. Here is the wheels.
This is the panel that was all black, now you can see the Jackz theme. I love the movie and am collecting some of the movie theme items.
The bike should be done in a day or two.
