    So its no secret I love horror and monster based everything. One of my all time favorite shows is the Munsters. I love everything about it, but I REALLY love the Barris vehicles. The Munster Koach is TOO cool. I'm going to be loosely basing this build on that basic idea.

    YES!

    I've had this turd of a Bratz bike kicking around for a while. Time for a change up.

    I'm planning on making a new stretched rear triangle, and wedging one of there in there.

    I'm going to figure it out as I go but it should be fun!

    I look forward to watching this one come together, especially around Halloween when lots of extras will be readily available. Wait till those post-Halloween sales in November!

    I don't have the patience to wait for the sales. :lol: :lol:

    I stayed up STUPID late so I could get this out..... SO AMPED!! I started to stretch out the back end about 6 inches or so. I'm not sure if I'm going to stick with the bratz frame as it is insanely thin metal. Either way heres some progress! :shock:

    Thanks bud! You know me, I freak out on the first day then get loaded down with responsibilities and scramble at the last second. :lol: :lol: Hopefully I can space out my time a little better for this one. I do have a huge Halloween party and Comicon to do this month, but not much else! I'm banking on smooth sailing. :wink:

    Sooooo I got this ratty partially rotted section of scaffold from work. As soon as I looked at it, the gears started turning! Not sure, but I think I'm going to raise the stay angle to be even with the upper frame. Either way I'm digging the dragstripperish vibe. I'm still up in the air about rear triangle layout, but that's what tack welds are for!

    Love it when a bit of junk becomes useful. "One persons trash is another's treasure."

    So I went on a little vacation to Comicon. We had a GREAT time! :shock: :lol:

    I also decided to switch up the base frame on this one. While I love my dragstripper-esque frame, I'm not super happy about the look of it for this theme. I scored an awesome Kia KMX on eBay (the first bike I had as a kid.) I think this fits the bill a bit better in my mind. Hopefully there will be some progress tonight. :D

    I had never heard of the Kia KMX before. I had to look it up. Looks interesting. I look forward to seeing what you're going to do with it!

    Cool chainguard! Almost looks like you could connect a rear fender to it.
