Anybody else have a bike they've "finished" that just hangs in the rafters? I've got a couple, fine bikes, built and finished in the allotted time slots, just not getting any seat time. I think it'd be great fun to rebuild at least one of them. The one I have in mind didn't fit the in last "Unfinished" build off because it was finished...hehe.

So I'm proposing a REbuild Off for a possible theme or a class in one of the future build offs.
It's be a pretty simple set of rules...
Bike must have been completed in a previous build off.
Bike must be completed before the deadline.
Aside from chroming and powder coating,
bike must be built by entrant.

What do you guys think?
Carl.

Built entirely? Including frame?
I'd really like to "rebuild" random motivation.
I like that bike!

....I like bikes that when you're building it, you say to yourself: "Self, I don't know where this is going...but it's gonna get there."



I've got plans to re-do this one, don't know when. It was never in a build off, but it was done entirely in a build thread HERE (thanks to photobucket that's pretty much gone). It's already been stripped and in storage.

I've got a Hawthorne tandem I've been thinking about cutting up, but it's in the attic for two years now. I guess it's not going anywhere.

From Bo-Nine, Little Neutrino. The first bike I've ever won anything with, but I never ride it. Skip tooth drive New Departure coaster and a vintage Allstate tire on a stepped rim. Fauxtina walnut minwax on bare metal.
Could freshen this one up...
