This is my second build off and the second time the weather has screwed me for taking pics. :mad:

P8270555.JPG


The bike is named after Cyrus Grissom who was the bad guy in the movie Con Air. It started out as two girl's Schwinn Varsities and a girls Rollfast, along with some various tubing, plate, and sheet metal.

I wanted fat rear tires, I found some hubs and rims for a Jr. Dragster and mounted some lawn tractor tires on them. Then a 20" 1.40 tire on a billet wheel completed the wheel tire combo. A 30" triple tree fork, some motorcyle handle bars and risers were used on the front. It has disc brakes all the way around, the front using a locking lever for a parking brake, and a dual lever for the rear.

The tank is sheetmetal (and my first attempt at making a tank), the fenders are trailer fenders that have been widened and reshaped along with 3/8 tube mounting brackets. The seat has been lengthened 5", and upholtered in a snakeskin pattered vinyl be my friend Kyle (Thanks Bud!!!!)

Paint is HOK Limetime pearl base, Didspade silver micro flake, Kustom Shop Lime candy, and Tampco clear. The graphics are a white base true fire overlayed in candy colors, Blue Veriegated gold leaf, with more Lime candy, and Lime pinstriping finishes it off.

Yep. I absolutely hate it to my core. It is exponentially worse than I imagined it would be. I am selling all my tools now. That thing should be a Hot Wheel from the 70's. You can put Ed Roth back in his genie bottle now. :21:

Nice work! Some very kool stuff going on here! This might have pushed you to the 'edge' at times, but you produced a 'cutting edge' build in the end. :41:
I do like this photo better for your Final voting photo though. Shows off a couple more of your tricks.

I loved the design and flow of this... before paint! The paint and graphics take it way over the top, awesome build.
