    so my friend's parents have given me a bike to build for her for christmas, and i just wanna know what it is before i dive in, as id like to make it somewhat original again. i know for a fact the only stock parts are the frame/fork, maybe the headset and BB, the seat post and clamp, and i think thats about it. im guessing a shelby, but im not too sure. excuse the cell phone pics, its the fastest way to download pictures to my computer now that my flash drive attachment for my camera doesnt work.

    WOW! :shock: This seems to be an extremely rare 2010 burrito or possibly a stretched out cruiser. The pics are a little blurry to be able to completely identify which. If you can find any serial numbers that have ... ah .... numbers, you could most likely determine what time and place this will be hacked. My basic eyeballing knowledge says that it was probably built in the next few months. Most likely a girls hibred that many of the male species will marvel at. :p :lol: :p

    I think you're right, it does look like a Shelby. They used that Wald sprocket on their mid-line and lower priced bikes. -Adam

    It's obviously some kind of widget. Possibly used in an old gas oven or electric blender. Have you tried hooking it up to a gas line or power outlet yet?

    Yes yes, obviously some sort of primitive human powered transportation device, I remember seeing something similar among Di Vincis drawings. I believe that originally the crude foot powered gear device connected the chain to a large ornithopter like flapping wing. Obviously it was meant to be propelled down a steep ramp and off of a cliff to produce flight.
    Good luck with that, and please, use plenty of safety gear and start your experimental runs on smaller cliffs. Not over 30 ft. or so.
