Keep a diary of your latest build here.
After RatRod (Steve) mentioned something about a folding Pugsley when looking at Sand Rover, I thought maybe I should change the name of my bike to Fugsley (Folding Pugsley).
I am kinda liking that as a new name. It would also help in continuing my theme of stealing from Sand Rover. Since he is spoofing a trademark (Land Rover), why don't I. I could use the same lettering as a Surly Pugsley has and call it a Burly Fugsley. What do you guys think? Dune Thuggy (which I liked at first, but there really isn't anything Thuggish about a Dahon no matter how big the tires are) or Burly Fugsley or something different. How about a Gnarly Fugsley?

I kinda like the Gnarly Fugsley since it is for the beach.
I posted a want ad for another StingRay and also for some old wooden water skis.
I am thinking about making a water ski banana seat similar to the skateboard seat I did on Beer Run, but only using the front of the ski with the curve end being the back curve of the seat. This won't affect the frame fold, but I may try to make the seat support retractable with the seatpost.
Broke down some of the un-needed parts on the Dahon. I actually should be able to recoup close to my total cost for this build off of the parts that I no longer need.
I can use standard cranks on the Dahon BB axle and I have plenty of cranks and chainrings to chose from.
I have a really good feel for how I can join and weld the next OCC rear end to a small section of the existing fork. It should be pretty strong too.
I also have a pretty good idea on some options of on how to join up the OCC rear to the rear of the Dahon and eliminate the worry about the chain hitting the Dahon chainstays.
Hate being in a wait to find mode on the other OCC Stingray. Guess I'll work on my other flip bikes this weekend to bring in some $$$$.
I was there, but my ship came in. If you look at when I "started" my project according to my build thread I was in a holding pattern for a while and I just couldn't get it out of my mind, even with the build-off going on, I had to walk past that cut rear section every day.
It gives me time to find a water ski (banana seat) and think up other stuff to tackle on this.
I think I will keep the stock handlebars, but who know. It will take some custom work to make any other handlebars work on this.
In the meantime, I can drool over Sand Rover.
Thank you sir, if you were closer, I would share.
I think you and yoothgeye are nuts and you know what? I really like what the 2 of you are doing with 2 very different bikes. No I'm not going to copy this idea but I can't wait to see it finished!
Thanks Moto. I can't take credit. Yooth is doing and I'm just copying. Actually just waiting right now.
Where is SC are you? Upstate or Low Country?
Thank you... on both counts.
just to let you know, the tire repair worked great! I rode it all weekend with 65psi in it (me = 300lbs) and even navigated a couple pot holes just to be sure!!
cant wait to see that folder when its 2/3 tire!!
The cost of my desire, to sleep now in the fire....
Glad to hear that your tire repair worked. I haven't done anything with mine yet. Maybe this weekend. Still hunting done the second OCC.
This is going to be a fun bike! MO FATTA - MO BETTA !!!
YOU STILL CUTTING UP MY BIKES?!? DID YA RIDE ONE YET?!? AT LEAST SAVE ME SOME FORKS FROM ONE. HOW WOULD IT LOOK IF YOU COMBINED TWO FORKS FOR A CHOPPER?? PUT EM ON A CRUISER (THAT ROADMASTER MAYBE) WITH A LOW SEAT WITH THE DRAG BARS,AND A THREE INCH TIRE ON THE BACK .I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THIS BIKE(FUGSLEY) SO ...GET TA BUILDIN'!! PEACE
Ride and Rat On
I Think Therefore- I Rat -Jake Sensi
Jake, I thought the reason they called these choppers, was beacuse you are supposed to chop them up.
I like your thinking on putting to forks together to make a radical Easy Rider chopper.
