    All steel or else you won't see the actual bullet holes.

    Can I come help you shoot it up or would that violate the all work must be done by the builder rule?

    Looks great so far

    I went back and looked at it again, same impression. What about inside the diamond? It's the proximity to the seat that doesn't help.

    Big bullet (unfortunately) is decommissioned. I'm leaning towards 40 cal.

    I think it would be allowable as shooting holes is not really "building."

    It will not be on the frame unless I get a new vision for it, I'm still thinking outboard sidecar.

    I gave $20 for one (the one I'm building) and $15 for the "parts bike" which was more complete than the other, but also has more rust and I noticed the triple trees are bent, I think he tried to make it a quad tree...

    Nope, you're wrong, I'm having 2 sidecars, one on either side. One will hold my helmet, the other my wrist, elbow, shin, and knee pads. :mrgreen:

    Great for trail riding. Then you could paint little moms with strollers being crossed out on the side of the tank. :D

    I was actually thinking of having little decals made of a Toyota Prius and having them crossed out on the top or down tube.

    I only have 1 tank, might use it, but not sure. Nothing special about the crank, but you like the chainring? Let me know Jake!

    Went home to meet my wife for lunch, before she got there I went up into my bike bathroom to get something:

    [​IMG]

    I knew when I first decided to build this thing last year that with all the extra weight I would want to address gearing to keep this from being a leg burner. When These Hyperco "Mike Spinner" bikes first showed up at Walmart I noticed the little sprocket on the 1 piece crank. Waited around till I found one for sale local, $5.

    [​IMG]

    These Hyperco bikes come with a microdrive rear hub, but with the bigger sprocket on the Jesse James rear coaster, it should pedal REAL easy.

    I was checking out the rest of the bike and it's basically perfect. A kid gave me a nice Haro frame, fork, bars, no seat or wheels. It has a nice 3 piece crank, same kid gave me the bent micro chainring off his Eastern BMX. I straightened it out and now with this Hyperco and the Haro I can make a decent bike, maybe for once I can flip something!!! I need some money for Olive Drab paint.
