Post your finished build of bikes here.
And I thought I had it bad when I broke my camera 2 weeks ago. Sorry to hear about your accident . Your bike is a true work of art here, I would love to see what you can make with an erector set.

OK, younger rat peeps. Here's today's history lesson. In 1958 Chevrolet introduced the 348/409 big block V-8. They bet their racing future on it. Chevrolet was out of racing for decades. They still call it Chevy's Frankenstein motor. It nearly destroyed its creator. It was big, heavy & (you guessed it) orange. You have recreated it on two wheels. This bike is not so much awesome as it is awe inspiring. Good build. Honest creator. Hope you are well soon. You built a bike we won't soon forget.

I have been loving this build from the beginning. You still surprised me in a good way with the finished product. Love it! You can tell you put a lot of "elbow grease" in this one. Maybe a little too much. Hope you heal fast.

Awesome, just awesome!!
Unless I missed it, you didn't say how he tossed you over the bars..? I have two guesses... Either you pulled the front suicide brake lever a little to hard & fast, OR you hit a pot hole/bump and the front tire locked up under the fork because it ran out of travel? No matter how it happened, the end result was a broken elbow... and that suuux!! Sorry to hear it, hope you heal quick and jump back on and tame the Bully!!

#1 is correct sir. After a high speed run I scrubbed off all the speed and sat up then started using the front to bring me to a complete stop. I decided to see what happens if I had to grab a lot of both brakes in an emergency and chirp went the front tire then otb I went.

p.s. Mine bit me too! I was wearing shorts and flip flops , and went for a short test ride in front of my house..........flip flop slips, foot slips off pedal, pedal takes big hunk of skin off shin
