sorry I dont have any working pics but i recently went through a big flood almost a year ago now and lost most everything i own luckily this bike was the first thing in the back of the truck!!!! lol

So it started as the black bike on the left....

Then I turned it into this with the help of some powder coat, that seat is actually off of my old folding Dahon :) !!! (rip lil buddy big trucks always win against folding bikes :( )




I wanted more Outta this Bike I wanted a fat front tire so bad!!! so with the help from a 79 cbr 500 I got some triple trees and started fitment. the stem was way to short so i had to trim the Head tube, if youve never done this it is a royal pain in the kyster!! an old huffy miss america donated me some apes and walmart lied to me and said the seat was water proof never trust the walmart! I cut the pedals up too! i think they looked cooler, ones black cause im still unsure if i like bare or black haha

then ideas were sparked from watching the Fugsley Build, I always wondered if those harley tires fit and then I was shown they did!!! Thanks KingFish! you da man, F.F.L. (Fugsley For Life!)



I neede to add a derailer for chain slack and create this cool chain guide to "stretch" the chain around that fat freakin tire!!!

This pic is just too cool you can get an idea of how the chain runs and its got some cool stuff goin on in it! see the moto in the back ground? what luck! lol

Hope you all like what you see!! and remember Rat on and Rat hard!

Brakes are good! How have you stopped that mount plate from spinning?
If you look really close (i was trying for a zoomed in shot, lol) inside the diamond on the front dropout is a grade eight allen head bolt that flush mounted oh so perfect wit h a nut on the back side. I'll try and get some better pics for ya :wink:
