Re: BAD APPLE Assembly begins.............TODAY!

Hey Pick,

Your pics make me happy!
The green on the frame looks metallic and deep. Nice job!
The combo of the Green and Black chrome looks really cool! 8)
The stance is long and low with the added rear drops and springer fork.
That thing is gonna ride smooooth! :D

I can't believe we've got the same frame :lol:

Keep up the good work!

Go Spaceliners!

Re: BAD APPLE Assembly begins.............TODAY!

Thanks guys for the positive comments. I am almost done & think I will make the deadline. Gonna be real hard to vote though. I think there are many, many great bikes in this competition, each one with a different twist to design. I honestly would have a hard time narrowing it down to 20, let alone 3. In my opinion, there are no losers in this contest, just a ton of creativity! Imagine what next years build will bring! Every entry is a winner & I think we are all artists in our own way. (I can't even draw a decent circle by the way) :lol: :lol: Good luck to all!!! 8) :mrgreen:

Re: BAD APPLE Update: 99% DONE! HOME STRETCH

Almost done! Still have to wire rear lights & mount kickstand, chain guard, secure brake arm & mount headbadge. Figured out today that chain clearance between tire & chain is minimal. May have to shave the tire a bit! I have about 1/16 of an inch clearance right now. Hope to finish up tomorrow. Pics will either be posted tomorrow or Friday. 8) :mrgreen: 8) Any suggestions or tips are welcome & thanks for lookin! :mrgreen: (Wish I had time to have hotrodjen or karfer do some pinstriping for me,) No time for that now!

May try that first & leave shaving as a last resort! Thanks for lookin! 8) :mrgreen:


SCHWINNRAY69: Haven't ridden it yet because I want to get the chain issue fixed first so I don't mess up my tire! The clock is tickin! I will probably be late to my own funeral! (hope so!) You ain't slackin, just pacing yourself! :lol: :lol: :mrgreen:

Bike looks great! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

If you have someone peddle the bike on the stand , you can take a sander to the square edge of the tire.

Those Kenda 3" flame tires have a thick edge that you can take a little off and give you a lot more room :wink:
