I used my 2Ross's on a MUSCULAR DYSTROPHIES ASSOCIATION ride on May 1. I don't transport this bike to often and I have to tie it off on the back rack of my truck cap removing the right pedal first. I got to the event and thought I left the pedal and wrench behind but remembered I put it in pocket in the bag in the rear. Didn't matter cause there were plenty of unattended bikes everywhere there :shock: . Joking..........my bike shop was there as a sponser and they would have got me a set in a matter of minutes. Phew :oops:

At the beginning I was already having skiping proplems with the "N" speed on my Shimano 3-speed coaster and I had to do the whole trip in 1st or 3rd (Iv'e got another hub I'll have to swap out). Even though it's a rail trail there are grades and wind to deal with. I swear it was uphill and against the wind both ways.

i was going to try for a circle wheelie but i broke my frame showing sissy how to jump a ramp :mrgreen: and haven't welded it back up yet so, own it and ride it like you stole it

I want this bike with the dragster slick in the background :) Where can i get me one of these?
That's Gotavan's baby! If you're ever on a ride with him, he'll let you ride it, but I doubt he'd ever part with it. If he does, you're on a very long list! :lol: It's essentially from Atomic Zombie's OverKill plans, just got a few Gotavan twists added. I've ridden it, as have most of the FBM - GL FreakBikers. It rides fairly easy once you get use to it. Lots of fun!

Thanks for the info guys. I would love to have some plans for this bike to see if i could build one or two. I have two old cragar draglight wheels the same size as that back wheel been wondering for years what to put them on and now I have found it.

I've been building what I call a "tilt" bike. Really simple, just take a BMX and tilt it up, weld on a seat post, another front end with another frontend on top and your done. I'll post some pix soon as I figure out how. Doesn't seem to be a "browse" button....

OK, here are 2 of my Tilt bikes. I keep the frame low so I have a future. We put lights all over our bikes 'cause we ride around midtown at least 4 nights a week. I haven't been on a "short" bike since building my first TB 2 yrs ago. I did another a couple weeks ago using a 24" BMX. The lite blue is my #1 Tilt bike and the red is#2.

Here's my latest Tilt bike. If i don't fool around(and have all the parts ready), it's a 2 hr build. I get all my donor frames off Freecycle(.com). And a few from the Bike Kitchen here in Sacramento. So far the only money spent has been a couple tubes. Simplicity is the name of the game. This style is very stable,easy to mount and ride. The little black boxes are strobe lites. My YouTube channel is: onetonmagoo. BTW it's not a wheelie popper!

onetonmagoo, I saw your vid on your bike build. I like your style of building, bikes nice too 8) . I ride the double high and have three of them plus " The Shadow ". The last one doesn't get to much air time, too tall for this old boy. I have to try a tilt build sometime.

You have to post your pics on something like PhotoBucket and link them to your post here. There is a thread on that somewhere here.
later Graylock
Edit:
Oop's I guess you got it down now, saw you pic up the thread.

Your 3 wheeler looks very similar to my BurningMan 09 trike. Didn't take it, and haven't used it since, but it is finished( motor needs tuning). I'm doing another tilt bike (for sale) this week. Hoping to get $75-100 for it. Have you sold any? And where are you? I'm riding the Banana tilt on TurkeyDay in a huge ride here in Sacramento (over 700 came out last year). I rode my #1 in a world record ride in Davis a few weeks ago (longest continuous line, 2 miles , 960 bikes). I had the only Tall bike and the only upholstered bike(Pix soon). I believe we should enjoy each and every moment of life, it's just too short not to.
