Thought about a virtual build off since we've got TIME to spend before the next but no just gonna put these here along with other scrawlings I've done. FYI I'm using paint.net.
First one is an idea for the Off Road class in the upcoming WBO 1+1= a bigger 1

Now obviously there'd be a little more cutting to get the top tube and seat stays to "land" on the Pug's frame. But I think you get the idea. It'd be an "Almost Tall" bike... All the fun of a fat tire 20" and seating for an adult sized person. Probably sport some low apes to get the grips in hand without bending too far over... So, there's one. Anybody else bored?

Anybody remember this one? It's on the back burner but still a project I'd like to complete...

GC.

I remember when you were floating this concept and thought it was such a cool,cool,idea. This is a bike that needs to happen.
 
My idea is less than scribbles, it's an area in my head somewhere between this:

and that:
Hack-Bike-Derby-Charge-1~2.jpg

with maybe a dash of this:

So far I've got a 3 speed Sturmey hub, a pair of vintage moto bars, a BMX stem, some Arayas, and some caliper brakes. There's a second secret plan, but it'll be expensive...

The steering column wasn't the same angle as the head tube so it always had problems with the chain and gear steer. Worked fine with out it but eventually got cut up and recycled into DoorK which uses the whole rear end from Muscle Spasm and the front clip from Dead Metal

I haven't worked on the powered wheel in the door section since the last BO (16?) But I do take this thing out and ride it. 6 speed derailleur disc brake hub. All from scribbles of ideas that started as fine point sharpie on a post-it, went into paint on the desk top and got reimagined on the garage floor

This is such a great idea. Love it.
I have been considering a fat tyre 20" moosegoose bmx build, along similar lines.

What did the handle bars come from on this>> Quite cool!!!

Drag
I made them from two sets of apes. I had a Sears Spyder 500 in the mid 70's. The 24" diamond framed one with very similar bars that I recreated by memory.

Here is where I tried to imagine a small block Chevy tribute bike. This is just the basic idea. It isn't to scale and I don't know if the valve and timing covers would really work for this.

For the above a water neck could probable house a light. A fan pulley could hold a head light on the concave side. A stock oil pan could have an upholstered pad for a seat or even go behind the seat as a cafe style rear cover.

Hey @MattiThundrrr what is that gold bike in the top pic? That is EXACTLY the frame I see in my head for one of my many future builds....
