As a huge fan of classic bicycles, I'm also a big fan of vintage motorcycles. After-all, the first motorcycles were basically bicycles with motors right? Back in the 'good ol days' the most souped-up motorcycles competed in events called hill climbs. Basically they started at the base of a big hill and raced to the top, many times losing control of their bikes in the process. The racers were tough, daring men and they had to be to compete. I've decided to dedicate my build to them as I try to create my own hill climber! Here's some motivational pics(not mine) Here's the beginnings: An early 40's Sun Racer badged bike I bought it as a complete bike but I've taken it apart and gotten the frame cleaned up a little. It was covered in green paint and when I began lightly sanding on it the old decals started coming through. I love the patina and that's how I'm keeping it! More to come!
