    Burnout Dragster

    We finally finished the bike a few weeks ago. We were first going to use the Sear peddles bike rims but then I located a set from a Murray from the early maybe even from the late 70s. Realized they were the same as a Ramrod Murray chopper I used to have. Since we were using the same style of...

    Burnout Dragster

    This is the before picture of the bike as I got it. Its a true drag race bike build up from back in the 70s and how I set my old bike in the early 80s. It has to different sprockets large and small depending on race conditions. The tools were really used by me back in the day on a Ramrod II. The...

    raleigh work horse

    Found this workhorse Raleigh sport. Thought about a trike setup, but then I realized I could make a neat truck roadster. So I slammed it. Would like to trim the fenders and add mid rise sissy bars and I-pad notepad holder in the center- maybe. For sure a beverage holder ha!

    Picked up this bike on Craig list last month everything is frozen except the rims. It was being used as a yard sculpture (keep in it weird) type of thing. Its a Sears Spyder 24. The build inspiration comes from Gene Winfields faded paint jobs like The Purple Haze 53 Buick..added a picture below...

    Burnout Dragster

    More updates on the buildup. After a struggle with a rusted headset, the forks removed and straightened I was able to get some paint applied on the frame. Nothing special, just a careful selection of spray can paint to get the retro metalflake candy color effects. This is the sec. Frame I paint...

    Burnout Dragster

    Finally got around to getting progress on the buildup. Had a stuck seat post that wouldn't budge. I had already soaked it in deruster with no luck, next was propane torch and atf fluid but that didn't work either. The whole problem was a small bend creating a lock right in the center of the...

    78 Huffy Turbo saved

    Saw this and had to save it. It was just frame and fork setup and chain guard. I like that it says turbo on it. Added Kenda mongoose flame tires. :D
