1980's Miyata Ridgerunner converted to 26" BMX with old school parts and V-brakes.
A huge thank you!! to my friends teenage daughter Samantha that did the art on the frame for me. She deserves most of the credit on this one.
There are some close up's of the artwork on the build thread...
Im' bored stiff waiting for my BO12 frame to get done, so i am gonna attack this old Motobecane now that I finally got it apart. I got it shaved and spayed some rattle aluminum over the scars that matches incredibly well!
The secret weapon... ;)
I have an OCC drift trike I am puting parts together for, but realize I will never finish it in time. :shake:
So I'm gonna do yet another strandie to go bar hopping on cause I feel like I still haven't found the perfect size for me after the last 2..
84' 17" Miyata with a 21" top tube. and...
80's shwinn 26's drop centers with 12g spokes, OG Taiwan Schwinn steel hubs

As I was fixing a flat on my Rudge tonight. I realized I hadn't ridden my MTB since I put a new bottom bracket in it last week.. I ride every day at least once to town ( a couple miles away) and usually get another ride in even if it is just down to the bar.
90% of the time I take a single...
A buddy of mine asked me to I.D some cars in S.F today for a freind whose boyfriend had passed away. Needless to say I was floored!! She said I could have first dibs on whatever I wanted once the lawyers come through. :dance2:
1953 MB 300s cab.
1953 BMW 3200cs Ghia coupe
Just finished up a BMX coversion on one like this and my kid says he's gonna steal it. :inlove: I was exactly what I have wanted but was still a little tight for me at 6'4" so I grabbed it's big brother today at the bike recycler.
