    Coasterbrake hub builds

    Hi guys, I contacted a framebuilder in the Netherlands and the guy was able to solder the hub and flanges. I'll do the finishing touches since he only soldered it. Next: Round and finish the rough soldering in the lathe and turn the fittings for the bearings. Plus: overall finish, you can still...

    Coasterbrake hub builds

    Thank Ulu, I love machine shop work too! Thank you! I am happy to make an STEP file or DXF file so you guys can contact your own lasercutter or waterjet supplier. Don't know if such a file can be dropped here on RRB though.

    Electric Trike Build

    Wow, that project looks really nice. Good idea to fill the gearbox with another 'light' material instead of heavy oil only. The carved styrofoam and (vacuum?) sealed plastic sounds good. If the plastic will not deteriorate by the oil :grin: Looking forward to more!

    Ratrod bicycle trailer and soapbox

    Hi guys, I know I have many builds in progress, but I can't keep the progress on this build from you. Since I saw some awesome/beautiful ratrod soapbox ideas here on Ratrodbikes and ideas on pinterest, I had to do something with that. My idea is to build a radio flyer / soapbox ratrod that...

    Rot Oma (Omafiets / Granny bicycle) Salvage

    Hi guys, I used the bicycle to get to work. It rides really well. On the way home after work at a traffic light something snapped... I thought the chain was broken. After a while I found out that the chain is ok, but the 'driver head' from the hub did not rotate. I appears I have broken the new...

    Rot Oma (Omafiets / Granny bicycle) Salvage

    Thanks guys! The bike is as good as done. Rides great! Only the front brake is a bit weak... maybe I'll change the front wheel or brake in the future, but it is a quick bicycle! So happy the chain is not hitting the chaincover! Smooth quiet ride.

    Pope Roger bike build

    Thanks man, appreciate your kind words. I will definitely never sell this bike. I hope my daughters will grow tall enough for this one ;) Yeah been thinking about that. Mainly an more oldschool style bicycle with an regulator/boardtracker style fork. For now I'll leave the bike as it is. Just...

    Rot Oma (Omafiets / Granny bicycle) Salvage

    Wow those letters are certainly cool! That will probably be a sticker, since I cant paintbrush and paying for one will be expensive. But ...., that looks wild! Love it. Thanks Matti! Granny is almost done! Biggest challenge is adjusting the chaincover without the chain scraping it. I decided...

    Rot Oma (Omafiets / Granny bicycle) Salvage

    I guess that you have more hills in the Philipphines 😉 Thank you! Bell and brake lever. I am thinking about drilling speedholes in the lever. I fixed the headlamp. Its plastic unfortunately. In my head, the idea of a thin layer of red spray was pretty cool. Just a little red glow, not...

    Wooden bicycle build

    Thank you @Ulu , tomorrow I am heading to a local tech shop that might have these rivets. Reminds me a bit of this: A few updates, I made the first piece near the bottom bracket round. 31,9mm. Had it the other way round in the lathe at first. Centrered and clamped! In due time I will...

    Junk build

    That is awesome! Tigers have no camoflage for us humans, but for their prey animals, yes. You can stalk the tigers prey now :crazy2: :thumbsup:

    Pope Roger bike build

    Hi guys, No big updates, but some changes: The salt bmx crankset bearings were toast, they would not spin anymore, completely stuck. I think it has to do with the extremely wet winter this year. I have ridden this bike for I guess 3000 kilometres now. I switched from US/Bmx BB to a European...

    Rot Oma (Omafiets / Granny bicycle) Salvage

    Drilled a hole through fork and brake arm. Did not feel like welding. Took the bike outside for a overall look today. Not the most exciting build on RRB, but happy with its looks so far! Can't wait to overtake teens on an electric bike on this one hehe Work continues soon.

    Rot Oma (Omafiets / Granny bicycle) Salvage

    Got some things done. Dustcap for the S2C hub. Lubricated the front wheel bearings. Decided to paint the brake plate red, to spice it up. Chaincover is testfitted. Its really tight. I had to move the rear chaincover bracket to the outside of the frame because the rear sprocket is too large with...

    Rot Oma (Omafiets / Granny bicycle) Salvage

    60's Granny bikes are around 80 to 100 euros for a rider here, depending on brand and model. I like yours! Especially the small tail light you see on these older models. Tube change! I have these sets, but I never run a flat :p the "Simson" sets are getting worse in quality and 'aging'. I will...

    Rot Oma (Omafiets / Granny bicycle) Salvage

    I lied in the previous post. The next job was not rust-welded pedals. It was painting the rims! Sprocket testfit (chainline). I ordered spacers and a dustcap. Bare naked bearings and balls is not a good idea on the road. Chocolate brown. Tires are in! 28x2.00 Schwalbe fat frank...

    Playbike build

    Those look like fun! Are they only popular in 20" or also 24" or 26"? Are they used for wheelies or races? They look really cool!

    Rot Oma (Omafiets / Granny bicycle) Salvage

    What is the story of your bike if I may ask? How did a Dutch Gazelle end up in Canada? In the meantime I am having fun with fire. Professional? No, but I'm having fun! Melt that plastic! I can already pull the bush out at this point! Its out! Heat it and scrape the final pieces out...
