I shoulda guessed that you had your hands on one or two of them at some time , it's just pretty cool that they'd make it from you all the way north of the border. Which 2 frames? The Drag Duster (bought off CL in Missoula Montana 6 months ago) The Hiawatha Penetrator (Ebay 2-3 years ago) The Sears Screamer (local bike swap in Vancouver B.C. 1 year ago) The Eatons Road King (local CL a year ago) or the Raleigh Tracker (second hand sports equipment store a few months ago)? The springer forks are definitely from you as I bought them off your ebay site for the Hiawatha Penetrator, but never ended up building it as I went with my Sears Rail project at that time and never got back to it. I'm sure I've bought a few other things from you over the years, especially before I found RRB as I was an ebay junkie !ChoppeRon said:I recognise those 2 frames! They spent a few years in my collection. Glad to see they are getting some attention paid to them!
My bad lol, that sure is the Sears Screamer, and I was thinking of Raleigh Ron! And I showed up just as you sold the Eliminator to that other guy out back of the coffee shop on Main 2 years ago. I was so disappointed cause I was looking for one and you only sold it for $50 (at least that's how I remember it lol). I used the springer front forks from the Screamer on my Rail build, but I'm planning on building the rest of the Screamer for my nephew. Started to work on the guard on this build today, so I will post pics Wednesday(ish) and hopefully will have the rest of the frame painted and ready to go this weekend. Hope all is well with you and sorry about the confusion (ChoppeRon, RaleighRon, RailRider, It's all so confusing )ChoppeRon said:Dude, it's ChoppeRon from Surrey B.C., ( the guy you bought the Sears Screamer from last year) not RaleighRon from N. Carolina ( he also goes by RailRider on here), who I assume you are thinking it is. My mistake on the Drag Duster frame. I sold a Murray Eliminator frame exactly like that 2 years ago at the last swap meet Dave Spicer put on. It was bare metal, and had faded graphics on the chainguard as well. I see a seatpan in a box that looks a lot like the one that went with it too. Thought it was you that bought it, my bad. I got beat up on it pretty good because I didn't want the hassle of selling to a worldwide market. Good luck with the build, I'll be watching.
Thanks for the thumbs up on the colour combo, as I wasn't sure they would look good together, but am pleased with the results so far. I like the idea of 2 stems for the handlebars, but I also am thinking of making my own bars out of some tubing I have and some help from my brother in law and his welder (and possibly his bosses pipe bender) Not sure about the "pink" stone either, but I am going to look for some pale blue ones, as I am trying to make her super flashy and am hoping some bling will give her that "Drag Queen" feel.OneHorsePower said:love that color combo 8) not sure about the pink stone tho , but i don't even know what you have in mind for this bike , could be cool
how about 2 stems in there for the handlebars and a central knob in the steering tube ? :wink:
Not certain that I could light the jewel from below but I will look into it as I think that would be cool.jats said:this is cool the jewel in the fork is flashy :lol: :wink: can you light it from below? love the frame and fork!! colors to :!:
