Re: Trinidad Colorado Bike She's a Rocker!

Thanks guys. I wasn't sure of the color at first but I think I really like it now. Havent riden it yet but it sets on fine. Got the chain on,needed to modify kickstand and reverse the rear sprocket on the Inter-4 rear end. Bought cables and have them pretty much run. I have to get a longer shifter cable housing as its a long trip. I should have bought some braze on cable mounts and not run housing the full distance maybe next time. I just realized that none of my built bikes has a coaster brake! just what I had around I guess.Got some 1/8 " brown pin stripe tape on order for the wheels. It should be ready for the show and ride on the 22th I still have to make the battery tube which will reside in the steerer tube and a tail light and my RRB member tag.

Re: Trinidad Colorado Bike She's a Rocker!

I guess I could have in 1965 considered myself a "Mod" with my warton coat and beatle boots and Vox guitar.....But when I got the bars and wheels on this girl she's a "Rocker" made me think of the Who's
Quadraphenia movie. need to buy a chain and dig out some cables. I finished this up today between painting 6 lite window sashes.

Vox Typhoon? Nice!

I have a mid 60's Vox Tornado in that same color. It has been my main guitar for 20 years now.

Re: Trinidad Colorado Bike She's a Rocker!

Got the shifter,brakes and Led lighting done tonight. The 3 AA batterys are in the steerer tube. I got my new Giro leather covered skate helmet today also fits like a.....well helmet.I cleaned and distressed the seat then oiled it.
My to do list is :
1) pinstripe (tape) the wheels
2) leather fork tube bumpers to protect the frame paint
3) block out pedal reflectors till I get some better looking ones.
4) Build a taillight self contained
5) Mount RRB member tag for the show.

Re: Trinidad Colorado Bike She's a Roller!

FYI, Dr. Peckerwrecker in Tdad passed away. Some of his/her patients still live there but its not a bad place.

Thats a lot of work to do to a frame, you are a visionary. Im stuck with what frames find me. I have room to wrench but nowhere to weld or paint. Good luck with your bike, it looks fun.

Re: Trinidad Colorado Bike She's a Roller!

Got the wheels pinstriped in brown 1/8" tape, leather wrap on fork tubes for frame bumpers and the name tag mounted. Tomorrow I think I gotta ride it..seems to fit well just setting on it we shall see.Just need to fab up a self contained LED tail light for the show next week.

Re: Trinidad Colorado Bike Done!

Decided to take the first test ride today...took it to work only a few small tighten up stuff problems. I think a smaller chain ring will be on my list of to do's.
