I decided to pull a "markm" and use the frame from my klunker project 'Mudklunk' for the current buildoff! :lol: I tweaked the first frame seriously out of whack, and don't have the time to fix it plus work out narrower wheels, etc. Mudklunk was really a non-project anyway, it didn't need anything to be a klunker really! ~Adam

i can send you the full size image through u send it i think. or maybe i can just enlarge the size on photobucket? that was taken at full rez for kickstand when they asked me to send pics of my bikes. but they said because my truck was in the back it made the bike go away in the photo. i still like these better.

My RRBBO3 bike the "Rust Rat" is alive and well and gets ridden often. I put the big cream tires on it since the RRBBO3, and its become one of my most ridden bikes. With the high presure tires (60 lbs), springer fork ,bent seatpost, springy Brooks B66 seat, and 2 speed kickback, it rides sooooo nice. I will get it cleaned up and put into the up coming Coasters BC show "The Art of the Bicycle" here in a couple of weeks.

I've built Burritos, LWB recumbents, choppers, but this is the bike that gets the most reaction from people. This thing is so low, the TOP of the head tube is about knee high...... Snot Rocket, from the space bike build off. Gets ridden at least once a week.

Finally got the Partridge off the hook to take a together pic. The 3spd has got a NOS leather seat from a Czech bike build in the '70's. Mountain bike bar extension trick moved the seat back. The Klunker got a new Cloud 9 seat and a WIDE set of bars a neighbor got me for helping with his car. 3spd gets an occasional run, nothing over 6 miles and the Klunker sees regular action as a commuter and the weekly quarry run.

From the RRBB0 3, Gas Pipe special, still going strong as my new daily rider. I had a bike accident at the beginning of summer and tore the muscles in the small of my back so no more tall seat posts and low bars for a while (and definitely no fixies or rigid carbon fiber frames either). I made a few minor changes to make the bike easier on my back until it has healed. Threw on a set of Spaceliner handlebars and changed the gear shifter to make it easier to use. I plan on re-routing the gear cable through a section of steel brake line to clean it up a bit but the pulley system works well for now.

Well I still have all my build off bikes, this one is from the Klunker buildoff, it started out as a Raleigh single speed cruiser[img]http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg195/holyrollin72/repack.jpg[/img]And then from the 3rd Build off is Back Alley Sally which started out as a 64 Sears Three speed from Austria[img]http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg195/holyrollin72/shedone001.jpg[/img] And last one I built Boardfeather... I am still trying to get the shifters dialed in :cry: [img]http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg195/holyrollin72/boardfeather.jpg[/img]

My RRBO4 "Sweet Liberty" Bike has already been changed-up. Since the only vote I got on the thing was unfortunatley my own vote, I decided to repaint. I really think that I missed the boat during the build-off and did not build a Rat at all. So I wanted to mess around with aging a paintjob and go with a more traditional color. Here is the B4 shot.
