    looks like I might be able to enter after all I currently have a bratz bike that the frame gave way and a couple musclebike frames and a bunch of parts so I might be able to enter after all if only I can contain myself from building it again lol

    the above bicycle is most likely going to be my starting point in as mentioned condition basically a frame crankset seat post and plastics minus the fenders I also am parting out a few other bikes and will have a vast collection of parts however this frame might be cracked on the rear downtube crossmember I seem to recall something like that happening so it might not be a contender but I'm hoping I can use it we shall see

    Thanks man, this is one mega seat and probably need to be creatively supported on a 26" frame. You're welcome to try it on a smaller frame though. Thanks for the parts offer. I'm still not sure if I'll have time for a MBBO build. We'll see how my schedule shakes out. Got to catch my breath from BO11 and build the trophy first.

    That's a nice chainring. If nobody claims the frame, I'd be interested in the ring

    While I prefer the 2 out of 3 approach, maybe trying to narrow the focus will be a good thing, rather than letting the MBBO turn into BO JR.

    Just saw this. Class 2 fits with the build that's in my head for a few months. Time to go thru the parts stash and see how many parts I actually have to make it work.

    If anyone is selling- Need a banana seat and short sissy bar, banana seat cover doesn't have to good. Prefer chrome sissy bar but will work with whatever, thanks.

    EDIT: found a cheap girls bike for banana seat, sissy bar donor.

    I just went through and deleted some posts about rules and other things that were cluttering up the thread.
    Just trying to keep things neat and tidy, so the thread does not get too far off track.

    Donor bikes are falling into place, need a few more parts to check off the mock up list in my head. Of course other things will pop up bit I almost have what I need to get started.

    The frame I want to use is in my car shop 2 hours away, uhh, the fact that I can't measure anything is drivin me nuts.

    Found a nice-ish girls muscle bike that would be a candidate for refurbish, that would put me in both classes. Gotta see if the daughters will roll on a banana seat cruiser. Haven't bought it yet. Far from perfect but complete enough to go thru and refresh.

    3 and a half days to go 'till the start!

    (I might be a little excited, this is my favorite build of the year!)
