RATRO HYBRID KLUNKER by FLAT BLACK KUSTOMS.

I have been asking if there was to be a klunker build off 2 and I was told that there will not be one for awhile...But I was informed about this build, so I am building a rat bike klunker ! HA ! So this is a picture of a bunch of bikes and frames that I have on the side of my house...the black & pink frame (closer to the top right of photo)is what I am building. It is a 1985 Schwinn frame(?) , I will check the serial numbers to make sure! I will post more photos soon! GERRY D. FLAT BLACK KUSTOMS.

You may not have the only Klunker in the build off *insert dramatic mystery movie music* (this is me hyping up my build) But I hope you heal up fast and get back to work

Haaw! Dag. Well I guess just a chip is good news. (?) On the other hand, dentists are expensive. On the bike tip, Klunkers sound like just your bag. Roll with it. Cheers, Quick
 
RATRO HYBRID KLUNKER/FULL MOON BOMBER ...1ST PICTURES!

The first thing I did was weld on a disc brake mount to the rear left chain stay. Crappy welds....But they work and will be ground down(see photos)! I am using a SUN"DOUBLE WIDE" mt. bike rim for this application! It will be f****n off the hook!
I will be putting white walls on this bike also! I am just mocking this bike up as I go...paint will come later!

Re: "KLUNKENSTIEN" aka RATRO HYBRID KLUNKER

Found a problem with my cranks, so I will not be using this set of 3 piece cranks! They are slipping so much! I bought them off of craigslist for $20 and thought that was a score.....NOPE ! Those cranks are a P.O.S!
I think I might go for a set of 1 pc. cromoly cranks with a 46 tooth sprocket and rat trap pedals! Keepin' it old school!

i never have luck with 3 piece cranks on cruisers. i like the simple clean look of one piece cranks anyways. that first seat shown is cool too.
