It would be nice to hear from the jury if this build qualifies. If it doesn´t, I´ll take it off from this thread and put it to other builds.
After all, there will be 2 out of 3; apes & bigger rear wheel.
Two out of three is the rule.

I started three bikes in this class.
One I've already kinda dropped out. Unless I get a welder and completely change directions with it. Just lost interest in building an ordinary ladies muscle bike. But there's still plenty of time for a reconfiguration and name change.

One, Motorskimixti, will make it for sure.

And the third, Kona Cafe', should make it if/when I get around to building a cafe racer style banana seat and bolt a fat tire on the back and slightly less fat tire on the front.

Don't have any ape hangers layin around...but....if I get a welder...maybe

Hit the 2 outta 3 and your good to go :thumbsup:. I can imagine it with a fat and skinny...and a nice flat (but contoured) skateboard banana :grin:.

Suggestion for name...Odds and Ends...

Ok, weekend is on and maybe I can make some progress.

Firstly, I think I´m gonna make the top tubes a bit longer, maybe say 3"-4" (pic below).
That way I can make more room for pedals and longer handlebars.

Or maybe not...
It´ll put those weldings under more stress and I definately don´t want to add more of them...

I like the shorter one. Looks like a mean little Racey bobber. Though both are sexy for sure. If I had room to pedal etc I wouldn't stretch.

Pedal with your toes. You'll be fine.


*custom bikes are more than a build. You have to learn the method to ride them! Like a secret handshake for your feet!
