Well, it's been another eventful Build-Off, my third one and they are always fun. I've been more busy this summer than usual, so I didn't get to put lots of time into this build, but it was a pretty basic bike, so I'm very happy with the results. Klunkers are a lot of fun to build, and to ride, so here are the final photos:

Dang this good looking bike will be hard to find in snow and fog conditions, on the salt flats or white sand beaches. You may want to add a GPS locator. Great job, especially on the digital camo paint.

Not much snow here and no white sand beaches or salt flats, so I should be good, if not, the green accents should help me find it.

Nice work there buddy! That storm trooper background is perfect too.
Where is the action shot?????
congRATs!!!!
Glad you liked the background, I don't know when it ended up on the side of that little convenience store, but I've had my eye on it for a while. Action shots should be coming soon, I took some today, but they didn't turn out well since it rained last night (no dust) and my daughter wasn't comfortable using the DSLR.

Love the stance and paint came out awesome...should be great fun to ride
Thanks, I have a chain link about to let go, so I need to snap that back in place before I really romp on it. Also, I have the wrong sized headset bearings on it, I tried to get the right ones but no luck, so I will instead swap out the headtube cups so that I can more easily source bearings.

I said it before and I'll say it again...coolest paint job in the build-off! :D Nice job, Justin! :wink:

Now I want a klunker :mrgreen:
Thanks man, I just wish you could have built another bike this year, a young builder like yourself is very inspirational... and you do one HECK of a job building cool bikes.

Yes, you need a Klunker!

I have the parts ready to build another one, then trying to plan one after that. So I have the build-off Klunker, the other I made during the build-off, and the old Schwinn Klunker5 I just bought... I NEED MORE! haha

Thank you, I'd love to see a BMX company start offering this paint scheme.
