    That makes me think of a Schwinn Pixie, but with a lot more attitude!

    Selling/Trading During the Pandemic

    Ok, can we just drop this then? I haven't commented much on this thread since you guys started arguing because I don't want or need to add more fuel to the fire. I live in TULSA OKLAHOMA! I'm literally living in the oil capital of the world, at least what's left of it. I could pour so much fuel...

    First time ever building a bike, completely new to the whole thing, advice and help welcome. Huffy Dragster

    Well ChiknCoop, I know I'm a tad late here, but welcome to Rat Rod Bikes! You've got a great first bike there! It's nice to hear that you're planning to restore it and bring it back to riding condition! I hope you'll find everything you need to rebuild your Dragster so you can get riding soon!

    Selling/Trading During the Pandemic

    Ok, even though I'm the original poster of this thread, I'm just going to go ahead and unwatch this thread. This is starting to sound like Reddit, Facebook, and a bunch of other social media sites that I try to, or rather, need to avoid. I started getting more active on here and the CABE this...

    Build Tunes

    Oh boy, given I'm one of the younger guys here, I'm not sure if my "build tunes" are your jam, but here's a tiny sample of what I like to listen to when I'm in "creative mode." For relaxing and figuring out my designs, a little Electro Swing or Chillwave/Synthwave works wonders... ...but I...

    Ok pal, there's no need to be rude here. For someone quoting scripture, you're not exactly setting a good example with your attitude.

    I'd definitely be happy with the banana seater.

    Selling/Trading During the Pandemic

    Ok, I wasn't expecting this thread to become the "random meaningless thread" or whatever it's called here and on The CABE. I thought derailleurs were supposed to keep things on track. But hey, you guys just keep being you.

    '79 Schwinn Fair Lady

    Ok, I might have an idea of how I can turn this Schwinn into a trike using the axle I have, but I won't be able to test fit anything until I get Trashliner back from the welders, hopefully today.

    Selling/Trading During the Pandemic

    Ok, what the heck is going on here? I stop commenting for less than a day, and now things are starting to sound heated and there's... a Pokemon battle brewing?

  15. Bike from the Dead

    Project yet determined!

    Man, every time I see a rusty Eliminator, I mentally kick myself in the head. I traded a '50s girl's Schwinn for one of those and a Sting-Ray at the Springfield, MO swap meet last year, only to trade both for a pair of equally ratty '40s/'50s 24" Monarks. If I knew what I had before I traded it...

    Fire Rat

    I'm hoping you're able to build the Fire Rat this time! You've got a great bike to build there!

    Man, that just sucks. Hopefully someone'll catch those thieves and you'll get your tools back, but man, that just hurts to hear.

    '79 Schwinn Fair Lady

    Well, this was a complete surprise to me, but it looks like I'm going to enter my first Muscle Bike Build Off this year too! I just got this 1979 Schwinn Fair Lady and the 2 mountain/road/track/idk bikes sitting behind it for FREE off of Facebook Marketplace earlier this afternoon! I can't say I...
  20. Bike from the Dead

    Should I go for it, or just let it sell?

    Well, I think I'm going to part out The Trashliner Trike. I'm taking it to my welder guy first thing in the morning to fix a spot on the trike rear, then after giving it one final ride, I'm going to start taking it apart. I'm not sure if I'll use the trike rear end for this build, but I'm...
