Late to the party and I won’t be expecting any awards for best dressed, but it would be rude not to get stuck in.
The story here is that my son (2 in August) likes to ride on the top tube of my bike with me. So I’m going to make a bike with a little more room so I don’t knee him into the road...
I completely forgot about this build off! I started building my bike yesterday and I'll see if I can find some before photos. What I've done so far is reassemble the frame with a new bottom bracket as the old one was an oddball.
This build is inspired by New Zealand's tendency to take our vehicles above and beyond what they were designed to do.
The Ten Tonne Tadpole is going to be under specced in pretty much every way by parts availability and cost.
This is the (nearly) finished Roadster I've put it up because, well its deadline time and I've been riding it for a week at least.
And this is me neglecting it (It was ONE time, and "It improves the patina"!)
The English 20 with a seized head and rusted almost everything else. I tried the rear brake and the cable snapped!
and th healing which for some reason only suffers from flat tyres and loose gearshifts. Still a likely donor.
This is my BSA, shes gotten pretty tatty. she has no wheels or brakes and I broke the chain.
No fixed ideas yet, but its going to be black and green
There wont be much chrome, the rust put paid to that.
