A place for photos and descriptions of your bikes.
She was built using parts from a Touring Bike: crank (Shimano Bio-Pace triple 48-38-28) and early Suntour friction shifters mounted on the goose neck's steering shaft; an old Mountain Bike: “Y”-frame, rear cassette (6-speed 14-30), front fork, seat tube and Shimano XT rear derailleur; a Road Bike: handle bar, goose neck, brake handles (I had to install travel agents in order to increase the mechanical advantage/travel due to use of the “H” brakes) and handle bar tape; and finally, a Muscle Bike: banana seat and sissy bar.
This bicycle has been a challenging, yet fun build due to all of the disparate bicycle types incorporated into it – somehow, I got all of these incongruent pieces to work together – that part, in all honesty, was just plain old blind luck!
Replaced the coil over shock with a personally manufactured steel bar, I deliberately left the surface rust on it and painted over it with clear matted polyurethane (the piece had character!)
I hope you like her.
Rat Rodding, is, if anything, the passionate act of creating something functional from an ostensible pile of rubble.
