Gooey Syrup is finished!

Started with an "Nirve Switchblade" type frame. Eventually found an incomplete fork. With many technical parts fabricated I got this thing back together.
Parts list:
  • Steel frame and fork which lay in a steel fabrication plant for over 10 years, collecting dust.
  • 26 inch wheels from an 346 Basman bicycle. 26x3.0 Ruff Balloon tires. Shimano CB-E110 type coaster brake and a Shimano Rollerbrake front hub.
  • Long steel fork with custom watercut and polished top crown which was missing. Custom made adapter on the fork that makes a drum/rollerbrake possible instead of a disc brake. The fork is freshly polished.
  • Zundapp moped handlebar clamps.
  • Front brake lever customized with an allen screw for that rough custom looks.
  • Custom lasercut and painted "Coasterbrake Strongarm"!
  • Paracord rear seat, a nice tryout.
  • Retro 80's front lamp.
  • 'M' for @MattiThundrrr chrome handlebars :rockout:
  • Ruff Cycles one piece crank 175mm with 'bones' chainring.
  • Chaincover mounted upside-down to accommodate the lines of the chopper bike.
  • Overall looks: This is a clean bicycle in near-new condition. But not too perfect, it is still a rider. Technically this bike is super-solid built.
  • Ride experience: Very smooth and does not feel heavy. Sudden sharp turns are lethal with this fork, danger adds to the ride experience!

Thank you for taking a look!

Let me know if you think another photo in the set is better to use for voting.

There are more ideas that I could execute on this build, but it rides and looks great, I certainly managed to build what I was envisioning with some help of the forum members.
Thanks for a great buildoff competition everyone!

Cool build BRE! Some really custom touches on here, that flipped chain guard is killer!

Hi guys,

Thanks for all the love! I appreciate you taking a look at my build entry.

Currently I am enjoying a week vacation with a campervan I rented.

Will certainly checkout all the builds and vote!

So sorry if replies are a bit slacking, every build deserves the attention.
