    re-pop swing bike

    The original swing bike was re produced for one year (june 04-05) It was nearly identical to the original except for aluminum neck and the seat had a bit of a different curve. It was only made in one color(a dark blue metallic) I dig the bikes and wanted to know your opinion of what one would...

    need a bit of help......

    I have ran into a snag on the build I am doing for the little lady. I started with a 26" huffy mt. bike. Not doing 21 gears so bought a used 26 " with a 3 speed. Today my flames show up in the mail and they don't fit the wheel. It is clearly stamped as a 26x1.375 araya. Why do I have two...

    Started on my burrito

    Did a bar swap. 33" apes, they are actually the bottom tube off of a shopping cart lol. Still need to make my 4 foot tall suicide brake lever and decide if I want to paint it or leave it.

    New(old) stuff I drug home.

    I have been riding past this house with old bikes rotting into the ground for 15 years. Today as I rode by there was a truck in the drive. It was the first time I had seen a vehicle there in over 5 years. So I stopped and asked if they wanted to part with the old bikes out back. His response was...

    Started on my burrito

    I did a good bit of work on this thing today. I ended up taking 8" out of the front of it. Then I changed the angle of both the top tube and the twin rods. After that was back together I mounted the rear triangle. It is still almost 10' long. Still need crank, chain installed and I am making a...

    mood swing

    With the burrito tied up on my bench at work I got bored. I wanted something to do and had a few bikes and parts laying around. So I mixed and matched some parts and grabbed a can of satin black. This is how it turned out. From this: To This: I had it together by 10am an rode it 15 miles soon...

    Started on my burrito

    I will be doing the rear first and making sure it is all straight and at the right ride height then I will do the steering. May do long bars and may do a link bar steering set up. If I do long bars I will turn the stem 180 degrees and extend a set of beach bars a foot. It will be right at 8 foot...

    Started on my burrito

    I have been think about a burrito build for a good little while now. Ran across a good candidate on CL and went for it. I picked up a Mid 70's Ross a couple weeks ago off of CL for $10. I didn't expect much for the money. To my surprise the bike was very nice and rode perfect. The seat tube was...

    I'm selling a new line of cruisers

    Good bike for the money. I picked up a 07 vendetta for the little lady. Threw away the fenders and swapped the bars for a set off of a trek. The factory bar was VERY wide and it was just very unstable for her. The frame feels very stubby to me but a lay back post would be an easy fix.
