Well this has been a lot of fun.Being my first build off, I waited a year for it,and it was well worth it...
I want to thank Steve for creating this site,I love the way so many people come together from all over the world with the same passion(Building bikes).
Also would like to thank Steve's bot (Kingfish254) :D
And everyone else who entered and supported with positive comments and helpful tips...
Girls can build aswell. :wink:

67 was inspired from a Cafe Racer...It started off simple than progressed on to being a little more than I expected. :D
The more junk I found the more went onto the bike...

Started with:
Bent mountain bike frame
Garelli tank
Honda chappy/monkey light(modified to solar power)
2 sets of mountain bike suspension forks
3 piece crank with heart sprocket
2 sets of old motorcycle fairings
Spray can paints
Kenda 24' rims from off my electra jeremy
24' thick brick tires
Bits n pieces chain/stem etc,from off old mountain bikes
decals
Spent around 125euros in the end...

History of build is here...

Amazing motorcycle look, throw a fake motor on that thing and the police would bother you for riding it on the sidewalks. Great job!

very creative all 'round. love the bike build.

also creative pictures, really fits, taking a racer to the race track, and start/finish pictures just tie it all up.

well done! :D
