    Rat / Rod Model Kit Bash Challenge II

    I don't have any MBs or ORs to enter. I don't fake my DNFs, I work hard at them. Just say my name five times in the mirror. Or tag me in a post, whatever.

    RAT / ROD MODEL KIT BASH CHALLENGE

    I only have one "model" type project on the books right now, and I'm not sure if it fits the scope of the mash up bash. I'll describe it here and let the the brains trust decide if it's an acceptable entry, with OJ having the final say. It's not totally a mash up, but will require a lot of...

    The general fixed gear/SS conversion thread.

    I think that's different from what matti had posted. The Double/Double isn't made to go with any kind of shifter.

    RAT / ROD MODEL KIT BASH CHALLENGE

    Hi RRBers, Stopping in to share this. Not exactly a mash up, or a model as such. But I finished my wife’s RC buggy today. Custom decals, paint, and some other details on the outside, bigger motor and better shocks on the inside. Giving my own RC a baja refresh as well. Will post pics when...

    My rat rod enikes I wish they would make those enikes. They would be my dream shoe. I wear my high tops all the time, and never tie my laces. they’d need to be self cleaning too

    I either want them equal sized or the front larger diameter and skinnier. holding a 24x3 up to it. i see that it looks pretty good. Now I gotta find a matching rim or a new set. Then have the hubs laced in :(

    No progress on the main event but I balanced a couple of parts on top of each other to come up with a concept for my wife’s ebike. (Planning ahead. If I bafang the Giant, I’m gonna have to build her an enike too so she’ll ride with me)

    Maybe it’s time to hit and run some bmx kids so I can get some 24s to try out on the front

    Looking back at my inspiration pics, one answer is more rake, but that’s not really an option. I don’t want to modify the frame or hunt down new forks with inherent rake.

    The stance looks way more extreme in photos than it actually is. I keep trying to take photos that show it better, but haven’t managed too. I’m even considering switching to a matching 24x3 on the front to cut down on the “high and short” look :39:

    Took it for a shakedown up and down the alley a few times. got some quirks to work out, but overall went well. worst thing was the rear tire rubbing on one side. Probably need the wheel redished to fix it. But I already knew that.

    Also as a nod to current times and the influence that Jemi Hedrix’s bike has had on this build, I’m considering renaming it to the: South Saturn Delta Variant. What so you reckon? Made me chuckle when I thought of it.

    No pics from tonight. But I can upgrade the bike’s status to Rideable. It’s a good day. It has the ability to go, stop, and shift gears. Even has air in the tires! Hopefully sometime this week I’ll take it out for a shakedown ride and try to knock any gremlins loose. Speaking of gremlins. No...
