    The blue one has a bmx vibe going on already... I also think you're right in putting the first bike's parts into the MBBO rather than the BMXBO. But why stop there? I'd use the whole bike in the MBBO. But you always seem to have a good vision. Carl.

    Yeah I checked that and it will clear but the triple trees are forward from the center. Also I do like how the bars main tubes are practically straight up vertical. That's an ALiEN look to me... C.

    MBBO inspiration pics...

    This is the kind of "Muscle Bike" I had in jr high. Sears Spyder 500. 24", 5 speed, twin top tubes, bow pedals, nice fade paintjob and those crazy handle bars. I wish I knew what happened to that thing. Guitarl.

    I'm actually looking for a chrome 12" or 16" wheeled bike to be the bottom half of a "SmallTall" using that chrome Y frame on top. BMX inspiration? Maybe not but it's be a fun pitbike. C.

    I hate to cut the triple trees down but there's too many angles as a chopper. Looks right to me level. I need to drop the bottom bracket down a bit. I'm probably replacing this one. I've an idea to try and use the new BB's chain stays as a traction bar look, it'll be stronger too. It's a WIP. C.

    I wish I had an original set. Like the ones on my Sears Spyder 500 when I was a kid. I built mine from two set of apes I cut up. Then later I stretched them... Oh and that skinny back tire had to go. I've mounted a 26x2.125 on a two speed kickback. It's much better. pics tomorrow. C.

    I've ridden sketchy bikes. There's a learning curve and then it's easy. I like it. Carl.

    Destroyed a drill doing that but I didn't have anything else to hone it with on hand. I get one tracked like that sometimes... I sanded the stem down a bit on a previous use and a bit more then too. Thanks man I did wonder for a while, so I went looking. And I found the one on a post somewhere...

    It just looked right to me, a continuation of the flipped bike theme. I did a little bit of drawing in paint.net before I built it for the 2014 MBBO and it seemed like a cool idea. I hadn't seen it before. Although I doubt I'm the first to ever build one like it... Only early drawing I could...

    Just a quick look... 3 speed rear hub, drop it a bit to get the top tube level. Hmm. C.

    It may be a major realignment. The original bottom bracket added when it was flipped broke a weld and is the main reason it got parked. It's an issue with this style of build, cracked the bracket in the same place on Zombies Dream as well. ( @MattiThundrrr go look that build up. lol ) When you...

    There has been some recent interest in an old build of mine that has been lying in a pile of parts at my second house. I've stolen so much off of it that it'd be easier to build another one than to resurrect this one but it holds a place in my heart too. So here it is, a flipped ladies...

    Hehe... my brakes will send you over the bars. That bike stops right now and you better hang on. While you're on the subject of hacking things up. I wonder if a guy added about 8 inches or so to the stays and ran a super aggressive rear tire... would it have the look of a hillclimb motorcycle...
