    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.

    Thanks IIFIFM!

    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.

    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.

    Classic Double Nickle reply.

    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.

    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

    Man, thanks, that means so much!

    It truly is, thanks Laurie.

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