    Of course, I meant it could be put there when the bike was parked and you played beer pong on the seat board. :oops:

    Re: BEER RUN - Beer Can Stereo

    This bike illustrates one eternal principle of art; there is a point where enough is enough, but if you keep on going, too much is even better.

    I never seem to be able to get past that point (my designs tend to be pretty spare), and I salute you for having the cojones to do so.

    I'm tempted to start commenting on the nature of self-satire etc. (having had a few beers myself), but in the end, it's just a bicycle, and it's GREAT! Ahem.

    Re: BEER RUN - RRB Brewery Build Off 6 Pack Complete

    I didn't work on the bike at all tonight, but I finished up the Rat Rod Bikes Build Off Commemorative Six Pack Sampler yesterday.
    This was a fun prop to make. Cheers!

    “Of all my favorite things to do,
    The utmost is to have a brew.
    My love grows for my foamy friend,
    With each thirst-quenching elbow bend.
    Beer’s so frothy, smooth and cold–
    It’s paradise–pure liquid gold.
    Yes, beer means many things to me…
    That’s all for now, I gotta pee!”

    Here are photos.

    Re: BEER RUN - RRB Brewery Build Off 6 Pack Complete

    The time demons are creeping in and I keep thinking of major changes.
    Maybe the fat 20" wheels again with apes?
    Maybe changing the forks from the springer to the dual tube forks from the Elvis cruiser?
    Maybe making a sissy bar type backreast out of another skateboard? (in front of the beer rack of course. I already have it in my mind a way to make it removable with a mortise and tenon type puzzle joint).

    I just don't think I have time, but who knows what I will do after I have a few.

    Hey, there is a new slogan for this build, "Who knows what I will do after I have a few".

    I't kinda goes along with the two words you hear right before a redneck goes to the hospital.

    Re: BEER RUN - RRB Brewery Build Off 6 Pack Complete

    It is looking like the only time I have left to work on the bike is part of Sat and part of Sun.
    I am almost sure I will swap the springer for a triple tube.
    I also have this 1.3 gallon beer keg can on the way but I not sure if it will make it Sat.

    Too many ideas still going through my head and toooo little time.

    I dig this bike, at first I thought it was a bit over the top... but then it came together at some point and I was digging it....It's over the top like a nice frothy head on a well drawn tap....

    Re: BEER RUN - RRB Brewery Build Off 6 Pack Complete

    I haven't had any time to do anything else with the bike, so I feel like I blacked out for a few days. Now I'm getting the shakes from not having my hands on the bike lately.

    This is meant to be a fun build, so I am glad for the smiles it provides. Just hope I have more time to make more smile worthy work this weekend. :D :D

    Re: BEER RUN - Beer Keg Porteur Rack

    Here is my thinking on the 5 liter beer keg. Lay it on it's side and cut the upper 1/4 off of it.
    Mount it on the front of the bike with copper pipe struts like a porteur rack.
    Re-use the upper quarter that I cut out as a rear mini fender. Especially if I use the fat Nirve 20" wheels.

    Re: BEER RUN - Radical change - Apes, forks, 20's, and surprise

    Well, I managed to get off work earlier than expected and I didn't waste any time getting my hands dirty.

    Big change for BEER RUN after some encouragement from Karfer. I decided to go for the more agressive look of the fat Nirve 20s and at the same time I changed out the forks and popped some apes I had off of a 1960s Italian folding tandem 16" wheel tandem bike of all things.

    Well enough talking, give me your opinion on this setup.

    Re: BEER RUN - Radical Change - Apes, forks, 20's, + Sissyboard

    Of course, I will replace the 7" crank with a 5" I have.

    Here is the surprise. I have had this idea ever since I decided that the board was the seat. This is the first time I truly mocked it up.
    To me this really changes the feel of the bike.
