Well, here goes nothing. This is my RRBBO2 entry, a simple 1977 schwinn speedster frame. I have had this frame and fork sitting around for quite a while now. I like the slight cantilever top tube, and the bike looks long and low when its put together right. But this will be a really simple build. For one; im broke, and second; i am pretty busy with school now. I plan on making this bike my comuter bike also, so I want to integrate some versatility into it. A couple weeks back, I ordered a 7speed hub with a compact roller brake. Thats where i came up with the name 'straight 7.' I plan on giving this bike the now ever popular 'boardtrack racer' style. Here is a sketch of where im heading towards. I would like to get some truss rods and a headlight, but that is pending. Also, I dont want to paint over the original paint becuase it already looks ok. Since I won't be sporting the flatblack and x color, this bike will really look more like a hot rod than a rat rod. But thanks to Rat Rod for posting this photo in the inspiration thread. This will be my inspiration: I didn't want to enter my bike for this build off because there are some seriously awesome bikes already being built. But I've got the fever again, and im in this just to have fun and to support you guys(and girls). I hope to see some crazy ideas and killer rat bikes. Good luck, see you in November.
