Sweet! I like it a lot!
Heres my allmost stock S8, planning to go the way yours is.
Show of your bike by brand or model.
I took the Ratty 8 apart again.
I'm going to transform it into " The Superbird ".
Here you can see more about the bike, and what my plan is.
A little strange but I like it!
Basman 883. 8spd. - 8.0 mm rims - 3.0 tires. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=24259
That is the coolest trike kit I've ever seen. Bought part or something of your own creation?
It's just a marriage of 2 different bikes, with some tweeks. You can see more info at the below link.
@ alaska. The top Ghostrider has 24x3" wheels on the back and 24x2.5" in the front with the stock Fatti-O tires on it. This is pretty much the widest setup possible on this frame without major mods. The rear hub is a S/A 8 speed with 130 OLD that BARELY gives me enough chain clearance.
The bottom Ghostrider has the stock rims/hubs and on the back I put a 24x4.25" tire and it also BARELY has enough chain clearance, but fills out the rear nicely:) Hope this helps.
My straight 8....first pic is the day i got it, second pic is today.
relocate shifter to frame, create suicide shift
pinstriping on fender/frame/fork
try to get a ford model A tailight, convert to LED and battery pack, and install.
That last one i may need some help on...ive got no elec experience.
Really nice Rat Fink olschbp. Will you tell me the brand and availability on the springer setup. I have a Boney Finger and would love to do the same with mine. I can't find anything compatible. Thanx
Felt "Deep Six"
Electra "Boney Finger"
Felt "El Guapo"
Phat "the 21" (2)
Anyone know if you can swap out uni-crown forks that are on newer versions of the Straight 8 or Rockabilly with the triple tree forks that are on this Rockabilly? I believe the frames are identical so I assume this will work, but I need confirmation. Thanks!
