Well I guess I am in. I was talking to my wife about entering the build off and explaining my cash flow woes and lack of a theme in mind. She suggested that whether I had an unlimited budget or used only parts in the garage, either way I was sure to make the world's most unsafe bicycle.

That said I am building a bike for as little as possible and making it at the very least "appear to be entirely unsafe". I will call it the Necromonger. Also, I am a terrible welder and I will be starting with a Huffy mountain bike.

The first incision......




Still not 100% sure of my design but it is starting to feel dangerous.

Re: The Necromonger

Dont worry my welding is just as bad,never been showin how,but I love to do it...My bike will probably bounce and crack... :eek: This entry is exactly what I do, I find old mtb n kids bmx(as that is all that is here)... And chop away... I use the headtubes,cranksets,rear dropouts, etc, to build cruisers choppers etc,also i use plumbing pipes and any metal i find for the frames... :?
Will watch this build :wink: Good luck

Re: The Necromonger

Here is where I am at with the frame. Had a nice day and nobody around today so I was able to get a lot done, for me.
I decided to take advantage of the "Wishbone" rear end. Probably be wishing I had a downtube once I have riden it.

Re: The Necromonger

I never really tell anybody how to do their builds, but if you added a short tube
from the seat post down to the tube you added, it would look really cool and add
a gusset effect. Great design so far.

I welcome any and all input. Funny because I considered calling the bike Hubris but then I worried I wouldn't get any imput from anyone.

My plan is still not entirely certain but last night I drew up a sketch. Before you judge, it was late and I had had a few libations.



Im thinking about running a 20" or smaller wheel up front and running the stem out from under. Also planning on a wooden tank that will be cut away so the laid back post can move up and down.

Lots to still be decided like: What size rear wheel? Color combo? Gearing? Fixie????????
