    MBBO 2020-2021 opinions needed

    But you and I have both submitted bikes that don’t have finishes, am I right? Regardless, muscle bikes have always been about nice finishes. Obviously this being RRB, that’s never been a hard and fast rule, but do you think it should? “2 of 3 and painted finish?”

    MBBO 2020-2021 opinions needed

    The reasoning behind multiple entries is to boost up the bike numbers. The MBBO, or whatever we’re calling it now, isn’t the RRBO. You won’t see 60 entries, and participation has been dwindling. You’ll be lucky if 10 guys enter I’ll bet. So maybe a compromise at no more than 2 entries? Also...

    MBBO 2020-2021 opinions needed

    Crash tried 3 or 4. You may remember I haven’t finished any in the past 2 years. I have a job that increases hours and days worked through the holidays, so it has seriously affected my ability to work on bikes during the timeframe.

    MBBO 2020-2021 opinions needed

    I voted for just MBBO because... well... that's what I do. But I'll chime in on the BMX piece since that's the way it's leaning: Don't limit wheel size. So what if it's a klunker? Maybe limit gears to 1 since BMX bikes aren't mult-geared? But maybe there is a dude that wants to build a 26"...

    First time ever building a bike, completely new to the whole thing, advice and help welcome. Huffy Dragster

    I am not sure if there is a difference between the headtube lengths of Dragsters through the years. I’m confident they’ll fit, but since you’re close, I thought it would be safer to test it. But, if you can’t make it up I can send it down to you.

    What about @RustyGold ? He “likes” just about every post I make, so you know he has the time!

    Sure, but since you’re close, I’d recommend bringing up the frame so you can make sure they fit.

    The pedals you'd want if you want to go with a pretty accurate restoration: https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-1-2-Classic-Block-Pedals-Union-Waffle-for-Schwinn-Old-School/223897871498?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    First... Welcome! I got bitten by the bug years ago, and got into restoring muscle bikes. Click the link on my signature below and you'll see what I've done, which includes a few Huffys, including one Dragster. Second... where in California? I live in Visalia, just south of Fresno...

    "King 'Cuda" (1972 Ross) *4-year UPDATE!*

    4 years later... an update. What prompted this is a few things. First, the sissy bar was at least 4" too tall, as you can see in the original "final" pics. So I had it cut, rewelded, and rechromed. I had broken the bike completely down, and it took me 4 years to put it back together... just...

    If Luke isn't available, and Kingfish is scared :P I'll throw @GuitarlCarl under the bus and nominate him! :D I'd volunteer, but since I now work in a place that gets slammed during the retail peak season, I haven't even been able to finish a bike for the last 2 years. I'm going to really...
