    Hercules Brewmeister

    I'm using that to hold the driveway down at the moment. I rescued it from the crusher a few years ago, all I've done so far is swap out the suspension to '79 camaro front and rear, and it has a '71 buick 350. Was gonna chop it 4", haven't developed the jewels for that yet.

    Hercules Brewmeister

    had some spare time today post-xmas and did some work on my Hercules, a la Amsterdam. Dug out an old dynamo, it works! Added a chain guard, had some really cool clear (amber) cable housings. The thing that sucks is, it fell over and busted my sturmey grip shifter, so I gotta make do with the...

    Shop n Chop

    or tank mount the speedo in the middle of the top tube of the frame, like a bobber, might be tricky though one thing I haven't seen yet is a Captain America chopper, like Easy Rider. I recall my cousin having an Evil Kneivel Bike back in the seventies, it was red white and blue, cool

    Huffy Techtra

    Got the tires on, wheels trued up, somewhat. Rides ok, simplistic, single speed, 1 brake, probably not a keeper, but it was fun easy build... another huffy saved from the crusher!

    Huffy Techtra

    Got rid of the bull bars, and went with more of a comfort bar, painted it red to match, and used a white bmx brake lever with white brake cable, kinda throwback to the old Elsinore days of my youth...hahh..... I think I'll at least keep it a six speed, and go with the Canadian Cyclo-Kross...

    Robbed the chain ring off of a Schwinn pixie, nice number. If I make this a single gear, does that make it a Pixie Fixie?

    That snappin turtle rocks!!! I gotta get one of those! Who made those, what vintage? Looks like late 40's early 50's by the motor. The original Snapper factory is just down the street from me, they shut it down back in the late '80's, you can still see the outline of "Snapper" in the faded...

    One of my Scout Dads brought this over for the boys to rebuild. Not sure what vintage it is, but it's made in USA, nothing Chinese or Taiwan about it. Maybe mid-80's? Will probably make it a 6 speed straight bar commuter.

    Not exactly a rat rod bike, but definitely retro, rat rod mower, picked it up at a garage sale yesterday for $10, circa 1958? I think I've found a Briggs 6B rope pull for it.

    Kombi-Klunker

    Nice ride, always a fan of primer red, but don't hate on the mountain bikes, sometimes they make good donor bikes. I was at my lbs the other day and a couple came in to get a bike. The store owner was less than helpful, it always frustrates me to see the little guy lose a sale because of his...
