    FENIX- Finished!

    A different twist on the name of a mythological bird that regenerates new life from the ashes. The legendary bird recycles its own life in the legends of different cultures, Egyptian, Chinese, Greek, etc. I hope to do something worthy of this symbolic bird with this Micargi frame I picked up at...

    My first eBike

    The LBS where I volunteer, recently obtained several discarded Stromer E-Bikes...yes, these were dumped at the local refuge center! These are $4,000 bikes ea.; tossed among the garbage, buried under piles of trash (how they wound up there is another story). Many of the aluminum frames were...

    This year I wanted to step away from the Jules Vern genre and build something fierce and road worthy. As with all of my builds I love frames that are vintage and I’ll do everything possible to keep these survivors around a little bit longer. My challenge was to create a unique transformation...

    The challenge was to take a derelict bike and give it a new life. Transform it into something besides a utilitarian rider but also one that's visually captivating!

    This is the Reader’s Digest version of my build…I thought it best if it were abbreviated. You’re welcome to view my entire journal at the end of this post. Enjoy.

    Mofo / MoFaux 8/1 They're Done!

    I've been working on bikes it seems all of my life, and overtime I have stockpiled too many parts. Before I toss them on eBay or take them to a swap meet I’ve decided this would be a good venue to see what I can build with these left over parts? Hence my theme, Mustgo — everything in my garage...
