    Perhaps this thread should be in place whenever there's no official build off going.

    You need to start your own thread for whatever challenge you want to start.

    do it like this once the bikes are done make a new thread making the poll then under it post the finished bikes. maybe cordinate it so the pics are sent to one or the other and posted at the same time. confused yet?

    It's tough enough for me just to get a bike together. I have no idea where or what to post anymore, but I have a few days to figure it all out. That's when I get a photo of my folder.

    Anybody down for a Klunker mini-build off? I just finished building one but might have enough parts to build another. I should not have watched that "Klunkers" movie :x

    Floridasfavson: Glad you liked the movie, but it's Klunkerz with a "Z". (I always have to say that:). Good luck with the build.
    Ride on!

    Will the winners of each of the mini build offs be in a Finals judging? I think that would be cool!

    I wonder if i should start another thread with completed folding bike build off bikes, or does one of the moderators set up the voting thing at the end?

    I have a 50's bike that I was thinking of building low with 26 x 2.125 tires. I don't think it would work for your bobber build though because I was thinking of making it a 10 speed.

    Any one want to build a vintage looking road race bike :?: , non motorized from true antiques to modified newer road race bikes ,with no shifters/derailleur or brake lever..
    i already started with mine , but still nothing done except finding/prepping some parts i will use...
    i just feel alone with this build,
