    For those of you who haven't seen the Build Thread, we are hard at work bringing the "Speed Forum" bike to life. The bike will be raffled off and the proceeds will be donated to the site to help Steve maintain our virtual playground.

    [​IMG]

    After Double Nickle and Dr. T's recreation of the Rust Rocket Deluxe last year the bar was set.

    [​IMG]

    Garagegoon got the ball rolling planning, getting parts lined up, and really stepped up to build a bike to equal last year's auction bike.

    Garagegoon had some family issues arise and he handed the reigns over to me. Here is what I brought home to begin with.

    [​IMG]

    Pick currently has the first batch for powder coating, super gloss black and ivory.

    mikesbikes36 is currently working on recreating the truss rod fork set up from the picture. Once he is done and gets them shipped to pick he will get them coated as well.


    Big thanks need to be given here-
    garagegoon- for starting the build process, donating many of the parts including the frame
    pick-handling the powder coating and donating some parts as well
    65rat- for throwing a Bendix red band kickback in the mix
    kingzeeba1- donating an awesome Brooks saddle and the goggles
    mikesbikes36- building the forks
    double nickle- for the awesome RRB plate on the front of the bike
    axsepul- donated the vinyl on dubby nic's plate and a sweet license plate
    XC204- Donated the forks and also extended the steer tube so they would fit out frame.
    peatbog-sent the we needed
    450redrider- gets credit for the stem and pedal hardware
    LowpowerD- has a friend to cut our spokes for us.
    deorman- is supplying the tubes
    ratfink1962- Took care of the bearings
    Critter1- Hooked us up with some sweet white pedal blocks and the solid sprocket

    If I missed someone please PM me so I can get you on the list. We already have over 25 pages on the build thread and I know someone got left out.

    Finally we need to thank Rat Rod for giving us this site where we can come together and share our passion.

    Although I can't wait to see this thing done, I think the auction figure would be higher if it was around tax time, or at least after the Holidays. I would LOVE to have this bike (I know that even before it's finished), but no way I get away with buiying it for myself right before Christmas.

    I need to talk somebody into buying for me...

    Pick got the frame in powder coated today. Imagine how you would look on this bike!

    UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE

    Just wanted to give a summary of the past few days of post from the build thread.

    pick is just about done with the first batch of powder coating
    [​IMG]

    The forks and custom fabbed truss rods are in the mail and should be here soon.

    [​IMG]

    The pedals, spokes, helmet and goggles have been found, plus our Jerald Slicks got to garagegoon today.

    I know it may be hard to figure out how this much progress can fill 5+ pages, but there has been a lot of smack talk among my Co-builders over which one of them will bid enough to win the bike. I have my thoughts on the matter.

    Check out the build thread and let us know what you think.

    Re: 2011 Auction Bike- "Speed Forum" bike comes to life

    All the parts are coming together. I am picking up the bearings that ratfink1962 supplied tonight. Pick should have the last bit of the powder coating done this week. I am still watching the mailbox for a few more parts to show up. If all the stars align correctly we will see assembly begin this weekend. I am going to come up with a creative way to document the build for everyone's enjoyment.

    2011 Auction Bike- Build Video Posted!

    Hmmm, I wonder if Rat-Rod would make an exception and allow one of these pics to be submitted for the 2012 calendar..

    I have arranged to get together with all of the Wichita Coaster's members who contributed to the build. We are going to take some group pics, get the final pics of the build, and go for a ride to give us all a chance to ride it before it goes up on the block. Gagagegoon, pick, 65rat, LowpowerD, and myself will be there. If there are any other local members who would like to join us Saturday at 11 send me a PM and I will let you know where we are meeting.
