Looks great to me!
Looking good,glad I could make the trip up and meet you,how you going for tubeing? I have some frames I can cut up if need be

So will a brakey thing off a trailer do the send fluidy stuff to the roundy roundy slowing down bits?
figure you can add a two handed handle to the end of te cylinder that the bit that goes over the tow ball so when in full panic stop mode the harder you lean back on pull the better it works.
Perhaps you've been welding without your welding helmet...
Might have to take you up on that... think it'll need some strengthening.
Also, I'll need to make some bars and they'll need to be quite big
The mastery type cylinder thing is from the sameish time period that the round rolly things and the drummie type stoppy things come from, so will match up nicely… I hopey.
I'll make some sort of levery type handley thing to actuate the stoppy bits, probably with some sort of ratchitty mechanism.
It's quite safe to say, that this buildy-wuildy will not make it to the deadliney-winey.
I will get to curing up some tubeing and I think I have a rread mill handle bar at work,around 2.5ft wide and the same swept back,90degree bend,hope they are still at work,I can get 2" short lengths of tubeing if that's better than bike tubeing

Thanks... anything you can spare would be great and appreciated.
I'm still waiting on the brake line and fittings, then I'll need to get a flaring tool to do the lines. And I might get a large sprocket made at a local water jet place to use those chains I showed you.
just reread my post,its a bit misleading I ment to say 2" diameter tubeing and will be 1.5 to 2 foot long and the handlebar is from a treadmill
Yeah, I did manage to decipher your previous post and figured that was what you meant. A treadmill handle bar would probably be a good size and any tubing would be gratefully accepted.
I assume you are planning on sending through work, so let me know if you need reimbursement for shipping cost.
Ahhhh....hahahha! Thanks guys for that witty exchange....got my morning off to a good starty ...!
1 handlebar and tubeing headed your way
Got it Thanks
hope the tubing will be useful to you,I'm thinking you may need to extend the bars a bit?
The tubes will definately be of use and you are right about the bars... they will need to be lengthened a bit.
shame you didnt get there in time Glen,the plus side is now you have time to do it without a deadline and take your time,if you make it down my way you can have a look at what I have,one thing i have which is always good for custom builds is a heap of different nuts/bolts/washers/spacers and everything in between(non-bike specific),keep building my friend
Major creation here, amazed you got this far without more workshop tools available. I like what you have so far and will look forwards to seeing progress as it happens.
Looking forward to more when it happens, I love this build!
I'm not sure if or when it'll get done as I'm not that happy with the frame. When I grab it and shake, it flexes and twists like billy-o. The wheels are just so heavy. I'll probably continue and try to get it rideable as is, but it really needs the rigidity of the RHS I think.
Perhaps, if allowed, I might re-do it in the next build off and this time go with the RHS as originally intended.
22 March 2016 – The long awaited update.
So it's been ages since the last post and I've been doing a bit of work on SIDEBOLT off and on over the past few months.
Here are some progress photos...
It's apart now and I did some welding on the frame but ran out of wire. I've had a 102 tooth sprocket made and will soon reassemble it all to see if it's going to be rideable.
I was going to start from scratch with SIDEBOLT for Build Off 11, but decided to just go with what it is and move on. I've got something else in mind for B.O.11...
