Here's my swindley little project. It started life as a 70s Huffy Cheater Slick. Up front is a recurved, shortened and rethreaded British fork. The chain guard originated on a Liberty Belle. 20x3” slick on the rear, 16” skinny from a Slingshot for the front. It's got that gasser vibe about it.

Painting the fade on the frame and forks and lace painting the chain guard was a lot of fun and really spiced it up. Build details can be found here.

The results were exactly what I had in mind but it came out so much better than I expected. This was a really fun build and I'm already looking for my bike for next years MBBO!

Great build Pondo! Love the color fade, that guard is amazing. That fat tire looks good on there. Really like the bars as well. SWEET RIDE!!! 👍
 
I love it!
Thanks Capt!
I almost wish I hadn't passed that along! :21: Fantastic job! That's really a tough looking build with a lot of flare!
:21: Thanks, man! Your bikes inspired me to get into muscle bikes. I really appreciate you hooking me up with this project and all the help and advice along the way!
 
@Pondo , my man! You really caught my attention with this hot rod custom gassy muscle bike! Love the fade paint, the stance with the ultra-wide rear slick and bent fork; everything about it. And that lace-paint chain guard: over the top!
Aren't muscle bike builds just a gas?!?

See ya next year...!

RaT oN~!
