    This 37 roadmaster frame has given me a lot of fun over the last couple if years, and i ended up breaking it last fall.

    So... I stretched it out, widened it out... built a seat and fork to make it look tough, and have a new stretched 37 Roadmaster.

    This 1x10 speed with 80mm wheels rides like the beast that it looks like. Firmly on the ground, it easily gets up to speed for an enjoying ride.

    You're definitely getting one of my votes! I want that frame badly. You really pulled this total build together nicely. Good choice to drop the tank. And that fork and wheelset are perfect for this beast!
    CONGRATS!

    Thank You Falstaff!
    Thank you Kingfish, such a great compliment. I really appreciate it!

    I am sure that tank will return at some point.

    Love the details on this one, paint, and use of good parts to make the ride anything less then the point, gears, disk breaks etc. Kudos!

    I like it. Glad you made it to the finish line. Tank, no tank, good both ways. I gotta find me a rear hub like that...

    Carl.

    I picked those origin 8 wheels with hubs up on eBay. They came sans axles and cluster. If you do a search for 90mm bicycle wheels they pop up. Counted 36 clicks per wheel rotation awhile back...

    Thanks DeFresh.

    I knew it would have some weight, I wanted modern components and gear to be able to push it along with ease.... and stop when needed....

    There will be no wheelie vid.... hehe.

    I'll start looking...
    I was thinking about a cassette with a disk brake hub and lace my own... Still digging your bike bro.

    Went for a nice loop, up and around... That 1x10 speed pedals well for a heavy bike.

    Took a pic or two on the ride home. My favorite part of the ride...
