OK here is my entry for the winter build off
i apologize to those who read the old version i did revamp it.
1950's huffy mainliner wrapped in gorilla Tape mossy oak pattern.
all components are junkyard bicycle parts the wheels fork and bearings coming off a huffy stalker the crankset coming from a road-master as well as the bars.
seat and seat post from a 50's columbia it's a messinger seat
brake levers are mismatched but have been wrapped as well as the bars to match the rest of the bike.
win or lose this was fun and i will be participating in build offs more often.
thanks Luke for setting all this up.
now without further adieu i present to you camoliner. enjoy

thanks bebopblu .
all it is is gorilla tape with mossy oak pattern carefully cut and applied .
when i say carefully i say whatever worked lol.
but thanks ,surprisingly, it came out pretty good.
first klunker i built that actually works lol
lol thanks pick.
i actually had this one out today in the snow
surprisingly it did not do well :headbang:
everything works still but she did not want any part of the snowy roads.
gotta be my fav other then my genesis.
lol yeah i thought bout arctic but the mossy oak was more my taste personally.
well we don't have 9 inches of snow here but what we got is frozen over so it's really slick
still gonna try though lol.
good luck with you're build.
heya jats!
thanks man. that was the hardest part cutting everything and making it all work. butt alas shes done and working great i have a video of it under the build thread. it's in 2 parts because the first part the chain fell off but i got her running and all the kinks worked out shes running top notch now.
if only the snow and ice would go away i'd be all set lol
thanks for posting.
