    Countdown to RRBBO-9! ...START!

    I may be out again, life's been crappy money and time wise for almost 2 years now. I do have a bike and many parts, but the time to build and fab I need.

    A fixie at walmart?

    Wow I haven't been here in a while. Trust me I've had to fix so many things done wrong by other assemblers that I am right there bashing them. Had one overnight guy that finally moved to stocking, 5 years in assembly and still couldn't adjust shifters.

    A fixie at walmart?

    While at work at Walmart I stopped to say hi to my former partner in bike assembly and showed me the new bike that just came in. He didn't even have it open yet so I tore into it. A black frame with 1 yellow tire on a red rim and 1 red tire on a yellow rim. Not only is this craze big enough for...

    If only they made...

    Many of these things sound cool but are more practical to make other ways like seat posts. Now the i beam inspired neck is the best idea so far. If you want to get fancy maybe a fender ornament and a fender mount taillight housing.

    The Competitor finishes at the stoke of midnight

    Here she is folks, I have always loved board trackers so I finally built my own. The biggest part of the work was the 1/4 eliptical front suspension fork. Seeing the early Indians and other motorcycles with these made me drool and was the initial inspuration. Here are the first pics just after...

    The Competitor

    Well I really finished assembly at the stroke of midnight. I put pics on my Photobucket but not sure how to link them with my phone so I will take my laptop to McD's after work. If you want to be the first to see them then follow the other pics links to get to my bucket.

    The Competitor

    Did a little mock up and parts digging today. Looks like I need to buy a headset that fits this one unless one of the parts bikes outside is the right diameter cups.

    The Competitor

    I had thoughts of headers on a bike.....but this is a board track not a hot rod. Anyway, those are for my Olds 350 that might have a future home in my '21 Dodge 3 window. But that's a long term project and I am digressing.... The saddle is for it, and white peddles, tires, and torpedo grips...

    The Competitor

    well I may change the name but I needed something up there. I'm doing a board tracker starting with the bike stuff hidden in this picture. Plan is to modify the forks I picked out and make a lucky seven seat post and rear supports for the seat. No I haven't done any work ye but I want to try to...
