Start your build off journal here!
So school is back in and its time again to start building another rolling wonder. Although I'm bad at keeping up with progress pictures, I will try my hardest to keep a steady flow of photography on this bike.
So here is the first concept sketch that I started with. I liked this idea a lot but it didn't do it for me so the bike has gone on to be a bit different.
So the bike that i'm starting out with is a J.C. Higgins
So that was the intial mock up, then the bike got bigger with the addition of a GT frame in the center to hold the middle wheel.
I've had the bike sandblasted now, and am ready to start working on a final mock up perhaps. I will keep ya posted!
Pretty intense. Very different. Dare I ask what the wheel in the middle is for? I was thinking part of the drivetrain somehow but couldnt figure it out from your sketch...
Here is the reason for the center wheel: I believe that the motor is the most fascinating part on a motorycle. This single element turned the once bicycle into a motorbike. I've tried to mimic motorcycles with a bicycle and wasn't satisfied. The 3rd Wheel ( Which has moon disc covers/not shown) will act as this centrifuge engine for the bike. There is the actually man power still. But this wheel is capable of bringing the bike up to speeds no man can peddle.
I am so glad you are in this build,

Not only I love the concept and I know this is gonna be The Bike... I also love the first sketch, very neat. I´m hooked
Wanna see my rides? :
