Love that back wheel , I am a big fan of BIG TIRES on the back , I will be watching
The proportions of this one are dead on right! I totally get the cool rake verses comfortability issue but don't think you've sacrificed cool at all. The angle of the forks gives it the right proportions in my opinion, it looks downright mean!
+1! That is awesome!
I've had an idea for some cool bars that I wanted to do for a while. I have two of these very art-deco stems from a couple of 1930s exercise bikes.
I want to use them on the triple trees like clip-on bars. I'll extend them a bit to put on some grips.
I picked up this seat and bars at a motorcycle swap meet, and I love this seat, so I swapped it out and will use this.
I welded it to the frame using a hinge, so that it comes up similar to how it often does on motorcycles. I then welded on the bottom of a set of kids BMX bars for the seat to rest on.
And here's how it sits:
That looks so fast and mean!
Loving the bars, genius idea!
Now that's tough, super tough!
Bars are awesome, good eye with that idea.
Very nice! I love the lines of this bike
WOW! Stepped away for a bit and come back and see this!!
Already so many cool details and the flow of this build is perfect!
Looks great! Beastly!!
I missed this build…very sweet!
The set-up here is spot on. Great looking ride.
There are sooo many top builds this year... but this one is just edging ahead for me at the moment.
Out a the park!!!! Very nice.
The jackshaft offset was 3". I had these two freewheels that I bought as a pair for $5, but I've never been able to use them, because it turned out that they were an odd smaller size. Tacked them together, and realized that I put one on backward.
Tacked them together AGAIN.
I then welded on the modified rear of a kid's 12" bike.
And it's a rider!
sweet! how does it ride?
This is definitely one of THE builds to follow.
Those bars, those tubes, that tire, those lines.
I especially like the way the second tubes curve in then back out.
It pedals easier than I thought it would, but to be honest, I'm too bent over. I know everyone loves the bars, but I may experiment with other bar options. I'd like it to be more comfortable than it is.
