Re: "HOOCH-A-RAMA"

Hey! It says "bike must not already be built!" Your rat looks done to me! Haha just kiddin Hooch, but there is just somethin so nice n simple about that straightbar.

Good luck, have fun, and can't wait to see your finished ride!

I think I'll be building the female version of that same machine!

It does look pretty sweet so far and I'm sure it will just get cooler.

24x 3 aint big nuff for "HOOCH-A-RAMA" went with a 26x3 and smaller sprocket in front..... the reason will come later :)
yes it was close but I had an idea and it worked! I had my son pedal it fast on the bike stand and took my angle grinder and rounded the sharp edge of the tire while it was spinning :)

This build requires at least one picture of you riding the final product and then we will be the judge of the seat fitment to your B U T T!
