    New Build "Land Shark"

    Looks killer! Sell it now and buy some dies to put a radius in the rear stays. You have the skills to build a new smaller tube roller to put a radius in the stays. Just saying. 8)

    Almost Evil.....No Longer Evil

    Re: Almost Evil I won that compition too. I won't ever do that again. I won a cheap.. 99¢ set of grips. Forget that! My Bicycles and my time are worth more than that. Keep building brother you are very talented. Blue from the Chopadero Nomads, Nor Cal.

    I'm bringing this one back. I just sold it, so I will have to finish it. I will finish the rear triangle and cut out the head tube. The new owner doesn't want that much rake. I am working on it today. I will have photos tonight of the work I did today. Blue 8)

    When ever I build a pedal forward Bicycle I put gears on it. I use Nexus 3 speed hubs. They go for about 75$ on ebay then another 30$ for spokes. It makes the ride alot easier when the BB is out in front. I couldn't ride most of my Bicycles if I didn't. LOL!! That Spaceliner is SICK!!

    I have to agree with Uncle Stretch. Plus If you move the bottom bracket away from the front wheel I think you will have to move back your seat tube and lengthen the top tube to make the whole thing work. That's unless you are a very small person. :lol: I do like where this is going. :lol: My...

    Big Mouth

    I'm not going to do the monsters now. I got a quote for it and the guy just had another kid so he is afraid to spend anymore money on the bicycle. :cry: I told him that in the future if he has a few extra bucks when can do it then.
