At first I thought it was a rabid wolverine (my spirit animal).
But after studying the background and human like hands its a raccoon? Looking forward to seeing pics of the mayhem.

Loved this coaster brake klunker race video. I raced klunkers in Northern California in the late 1970's to the early 1980's. One speeds were classified Iron Men Class in most races. That includes freewheel one speeds. Our courses were lots of steep up and real gnarly down hills. Races were between 20 and 30 miles. Our bikes were equipped with front brakes, either drum or Mafac tandem cantilever brakes. I used Favorite Czech made rear coaster brakes. Lots of hills were so steep that a sliding coaster rear brake just allowed you to speed up so front brakes were necessary. Our bikes had no suspension and I see you guys are running no suspension. I had to build my klunker from scratch because this was before commercially made MTB's were available. Good luck with your races.
