My name is Ross and I’ve been a lurker for only a week but wanted to say hi. I grew up most of my life from a baby in England on US Airforce bases ,but the longer summers here (where sunshine actually exists) caught my attention 7 years ago when I came to visit family and now 7 years later I’m a permanent fixture. I am a funny talker to say the least.
My history with bikes is extensive but is mostly mountain biking which I have built quite a few and raced them also. I road bike out of necessity to keep in equilibrium my love of pizza and good ol’ fashioned American burgers.
My girlfriend a few weeks back won a men’s cruiser bike which she gave to me. Not sure of brands yet but it wasn’t great in terms of its components that were anything but smooth. Being obsessed with customizing my mountain bikes, I stripped it down to the bone till there was only the frame left which is a sturdy steel frame.
Since then its been stripped and powder coated and the next thing I know my bank hates me but I have a ton of new components on the way to build a custom chopper type cruiser from the frame up. I’m not sure this constitutes a “Rat Rod”, but I’d love to share my progress with all you very talented people in a separate appropriate thread. I plan to build a custom wheel set and also do some custom gloss black paint on top of the flat black powder coat for a nice ghost effect. It should look pretty cool. I’m also making some really sweet custom tire valve caps I think some of you may find cool.
I sure am excited and I’m really hooked on this cruiser concept. It certainly wont be the last one I build. I already want to do a rusty Frankenstein type rat rod for my next project, inspired by the very talented people on this forum.
Anyway salutations and thank you for having me. I’m new to all this so any advice or criticism I am very grateful for!
