No worries ASB, I'm not the renaissance fair knight. Just one example of never knowing what you will run across on a Savannah bike ride.

This was my RRBO7 bike. Really didn't do that well in the build off, but for some reason I love it! Built mostly with parts I already had laying around. I just started throwing parts at it to see what stuck. Had a Murray Eliminator frame from a fellow RRB member, already had the West Coast Chopper wheels & the forks from a Murray Porkchopper. Bars from a Razor pit bike. Cut the dropouts off of an old girls bike & welded them to the frame for tire clearance. Tank didn't fit so I made it fit. Chainring & crank off of an unkown BMX bike, old set of pedals, fabbed some truss rods made from an old aftermarket rack from another RRB member. Donated grips from "SCHWINNRAY69". Old seat I had laying around. Old Schwinn headlight mounted upside down. Built for my grandson (7 yrs old). He loves it, even though it ain't the best rider we have. I think the only thing I had to purchase was the black chain & tubes for the tires.

Here is my BO6 beer bike "BEER RUN" . Skateboard seat and backrest, car steering wheel, beer bottle tank, Billy Beer headlight, and flashing "COLD BEER" sign on the back.
