this western flyer musclebike frame, pretty much every part you see with it, PLUS the coaster brake 26's/tires in the background. all for $50. this is my very rough mock-up of the musclebike, resto will start tomorrow. questions/comments welcome.
sounds like a good plan. im actually thinking about using the banana seat on a straightbar higgins im building (i got the idea from seeing hooch's "stubby" in the gallery). i have another banana seat for the musclebike, its all squared off/ribbed, but it needs recovering. thats where brian (tempe-terror) comes in.kingplinker said:Hey very cool! I found a "Buzz Bike" at the local dump - here is pic of it in my vise. The neck broke when I tried to get handlebars off, the bars broke too, but frame is in OK shape - little pitted in spots - It was ROUGH, this is bike I am building right now - went for purple frame and had to chop neck top & bottom to fit some tripple-trees - WISH I had them cool wheels!
the rear is fine, and only a tiny bit rubs on the front tire. ill take care of that with the angle grinder- not too much, just a little bit off the side...aka_locojoe said:nugenhipsta are there any clearance issues with the fat tires or do they fit ok?
