    one buildoff i do not recall seeing and if it was i missed it would be cool.. a girls bike buildoff
    so many of these girls bikes are just gorgeous and usually well cared for
    the rules would be simple

    anything goes as far as parts and craftsmanship, but the bike must be girls bike when completed no gender benders allowed
    keep it simple and have fun
    build will take 3 months
    bike must not have been built already you have to post a thread of beginning progress and finished results
    bike must be rideable
    any takers?
    let me know i got a girls bike i am just itching to build and do not want to wait too long

    I collect a lot of girls bikes. If you can get enough people on board I might look at throwing my hat in the ring just for fun. I have a lot going on, but a simple build would be doable.

    BTW, I agree that there are a lot of great looking girls bikes that just don't get the respect that they deserve.

    I like this idea. I just put together a bike for my son, now I need to do the same for my daughter-in-law. I've got a pile of girls bikes to choose from.

    I have a Penny’ Swinger and a Lil’ Chick to work on, but nothing here is pre-70s. Open it up and I can jump in.


    (edit) I take that back...I might have something around.

    I'm a go. I had overlooked the previous age requirement, but I'm in either way.

    ok guys n gals here is my entry junkyard fresh what i believe is a road master amf built im assuming late 50's since the fenders are peaked ( and destroyed i may be able to work on them though and get them fixed) her name will be Betty and there is a reason for that once the buildoff begins the name will make sense 100_2925.JPG
