    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.

    I see why you have cash flo problems. Those new fences are pricy. You got a bike and
    the idea will come to you. Good luck!

    If you are going to weld badly on something, it might as well be a Huffy MTB. :p
    Good luck buddy!

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

    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.

    You could probably still fit a curved one in if you think so? Interesting frame, never the less. 8)

    Throw a curved downtube in there that follows a wheel and see what that looks like

    The added horizontal tube should help quite a bit. :|



    Assuming the welds hold. :p

    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.

    Re: The Necromonger

    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.

    [​IMG]

    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????????

    Re: The Necromonger

    I really like what you did with the frame. I also like the plans for the lowered bars and small front wheel.
    It will be interesting to see how that works out.
