    is there room for one more?:) I thought I was done with the buildoffs until I stumbled upon this combination. an 80mm wheel stuffed into the back of an old evans frame....with NO modifications to the frame whatsoever! this will be a lowbrow build,so its just wiping the dust off the parts and twisting it together. got some mis-matched wheels and tires,a tweaked old seatpan and more junky stuff from the garage.here we go for the 7th summer!

    Wow, can't believe that wheel fit in there!
    It just wouldn't be right not to have a TBJ build in the build off.

    Welcome to the madness Big Guy!
    I like how that 80mm makes even an 'everyday' tire look killer!

    Cheers!

    Neat to see another Evans bike in the builds. I need your truss rods.

    now have some more parts hung on the frame. now running a black 2.125 brick tread on the 80mm 2spd kickback wheel and a 1.50 on the front. got a post war stem holding a set of 28" bare metal Torrington bars,and some beat up old coke bottle grips. drivetrain consists of an old wald crank w/a reversed Columbia sprocket w/ 3 washers between the bearing cone and sprocket,and some old Torrington pedals w/ persons blocks. brake strap is a piece of chain w/ a bolt run through a 1943 british west Africa coin,and a texas gremlin bell to ward off bad juju!:thumbsup: seat,lighting,kickstand and finished!

    Looks like it's leaping forward.

    rather than trying to straighten out the rusty seat frame I was going to use,i chose to make a hybrid. I had a clean long spring chassis with an ugly old top and a rusty but straight seat pan with a twisted chassis. after some re-engineering and a Mexican blanket it is now....FrankenSaddle!:113: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    its amazing how the sun goes away as soon as you push the bike out of the garage!:headbang: just a few bad driveway shots before I find a better location. I changed out the front tire to the matching brick tread to beef up the front end and wired up a 9 led tractor light to blaze the way. absolute simplest and cheapest bike ive ever entered in a buildoff. it wears its flaws and imperfections proudly!

    I think you actually get better pics in overcast conditions. Looks good! That shadow picture is cool.
