Yeah Luke, it'll be there soon-ish.LukeTheJoker said:Nice work Glen! See you over at the finished bikes thread!
Kingfish, I am surprised that you didn't learn about the hangi when you visited NZ. It is a traditional method of cooking food using heated rocks buried in a pit dug into the earth. Here is a wiki link... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H%C4%81ngikingfish254 said:Great work going on in that shop of yours!
Dig the hangi sack, even though I dont know what hangi is.
Love the shifter!
Thanks Deven. That was a bit of a lightbulb moment when I getting a bit panicky about having yucky white pedals and the black paint scratched almost immediately. I reckon they look great now.deven_science said:Covering the pedals with inner tube looks good! Great idea.
Sorry for the late reply on this Franco and thanks for the kind words.I love Glen's builds, they're so organic and the use of 'found art' ...it's really more hard core than looking at some of the showroom quality bikes...they all tend to look sortof the same after a while.
In my woodworking career, I used to build furniture out of reclaimed 'anything'. driftwood, tree limbs, deadwood... much more creative than just going to the lumber yard......ha
and....those pieces always got the most attention, it seems.
Clever ideas Glen....
Oh, maybe another reason I feel simpatico is that I just picked up a cheapo flux core like he uses....not because I'm cheap, I'm broke, (there's a difference)....I think when you're broke it tends to lead one to workarounds that are often more creative then sending your ideas off to your 'welder', your 'striper', your painter', your 'chrome guy', your 'powdercoat guy"...you get the idea....I don't see that as really 'building a bike. uh uh...not at all ....ya gotta hunt for junk and get your knees dirty.....
Rock on Glenster.
