    Campground Stroller Trike

    5 days in and already 35 threads....! Although I will have a lot of stuff on my plate this summer, I'll try and join in for the fun. Last summer I bought this nice vintage NSU goose neck ladies frame: I was watching this beautie for a long time on the bay and finnally came out lucky. The year...

    Hi Guys! I was and still am not able to build a bike this summer/winter because of various reasons, covid beeing one of them... But feeling that I need to build SOMETHING and also be able to work off some tension and in the same time work out, I decided that it was time to start a new project...

    ClearOut - from the basement to the campground back on the street

    ClearOut started as a heap of frames and parts that needed to make way for other stuff in my basement storage compartment, hence the name. I took all that stuff with me to my caravan on the campground at the outskirts of Berlin. During my summer holidays I spent a week there with my kids and in...

    Clear Out - lights done, so it's done...

    Pushed myself finally to start a thread... I needed to make room in the basement for a recently acquired car top box, so I my two "project frames" needed to be moved somewhere else, hence the builds name... :wink1: So this was the perfect opportunity to get some (crappy-mobilephone-basement)...

    The EggBeater - or - how to fold a bike without quantum mechanics

    Hello my fellow builders. Sometimes live is happening and bikes are building themselves. This is one of this occasions. Originally I planned to build a trike with an egg-shaped front basket, hence all the egg-puns, but then my live really got complicated and the build went down a completely...

    RRBBO13 EggBeater - roaming the roads and riding the subways of Berlin!

    Was out at a waterfront playground with my two boys today. An while watching them play at the water I started sketching down some ideas spinnin in my head and got a little "eggcyled". I don't know if I can pull this off in time or even at all. This build will involve a kids trailer, a 60ties...

    Still thinkin' about it....

    As "The Wolverine" has finally left the workshop, I'm not sure if I will/should join in on the fun. I have two viable contenders in the basement: 1 - Last years Cycl'o'path. It never went much past the mockup state, and is hanging on my workshops wall ever since. So it might still be a possible...

    The Wolverine - continued from BO12 and finally finished!

    As Promised, I will continue on "the Wolverine". If you followed my build during the BO12, you probably know what happend in this build until now. For the others: just head over to the first part of this build in the BO12. As I told already, I made a major move from south of germany to Berlin...

    The Wolverine (frame swap...)

    As I see no chance to finish the Cycl'o'path in time, I'll pull a frame swap. May I present you the Wolverine: Almost a year ago, I covered this frame and fork with snippets from a Wolverine comic and tried to sell it as it is without any success. Just recently I got my hands on a donor...

    Swiss Cycl'o'path (pulled from BO12, frame swapped and new thread up: The Wolverine)

    Hello fellow builders! I finally had time to head down into the basement and start my build. I'll again throw a european diamond frame into the ring. It won't become a rat, this time I have something shinier in mind. Here's my starting point: Nothing special (yet), I got it last autumn for...

    Build Off 11 - Fountain Pics

    Just thought, why not open a thread for all those fountain pics popping up in this build off... Starting off with one from Kingfish who kind of started this fountain-pic-madness.... :39:

    BarrelBanana Lowrider

    May I present you the product of my first build off: The BarrelBanana Lowrider! It started off from a scrap fork, bent out of pure boredom and curiosity. Add in a frame bought cheap, some barrel staves collecting dust in the workshop, a few bike parts on stock, bought or donated by a friend...

    BarrelBanana Lowrider - still in (ab)use

    Hello fellow builders. I kind of started a build without nowing that I'm already building. So as I continued I thought, why not join the build off... Here is what I already did/got so far: A bent fork (that's where it started last week) A frame for the fork (I had this one hanging around in...
