Have fun voting everyone and and good luck to all builders!

-Voting will run for 1 week.
-You can vote for as many bikes as you like in one voting session, BUT, once you click "submit vote" you cannot go back and vote for more bikes in that class.
-At the end of the week the results will be visible to everybody.

I think #15 is the closest to an original klunker.

This was my first RRB build it was fun would definitely do it again.
Same here. I came on this forum interested in the whole vintage cruiser thing, I have acquired a bunch of bikes since then but its kind of funny how everything has sort of moved to this style build.
My only problem with doing other builds, I really have too many bikes as it is.

I am an off-road bike rider at heart. Spent 14 seasons on the Midwest regional mountain bike racing circuit and sponsored races and events for 10 of those. Edited a couple of mt bike magazines and newsletters. But the sheer joy of building and riding this klunker of mine is hard to beat ! @jamesdart , I hear ya. I have already built two klunkers in the past 8 months and I can feel another one coming on.....it's in our blood....:crazy:

OJ, I have a new one already started. That free generic frame I picked up now has a triple T shocked fork on it now and I am working to finish mocking it up to a 24 speed this weekend...

It should be a light Jumper, I really want to ride those gap jumps on the frenchman run, and the bomber is a bit to heavy to jump the gaps... so building one that I can destroy if I miss on one of the jumps...

Keep us posted! Maybe we should have a sub-group of klunker builders.... :nod: I think there might be a few candidates in this build off forum.
