I used to have hair like that. Now it's a bit more like Ed Harris.
Look under the tree! It's a happy little bicycle. :lol:
Okay, modified an old BMX stem to use the double-clamp blocks. This allowed me to re-install the stock 21.1mm I.D. fork to drop the front end back down.
Skinny, skinny SKINNY!
Wow this is cool! What size tire is on the front? I love how skinny it is, makes the slick look even bigger!
I agree, it looks great!
deifinitly make the big n littles look even big n littler!
Yepp, I too agree on the tires! Perfect combo!
the double clamp stem looks really cool! how'd you modify it to work with the clamps?
The front tire is a 20"x1" slick for a mini BMX bike running on an indoor track. (451mm rim like an S-7, but alloy).
I clearanced the blocks from the double stem slightly with a Dremel to match the hole spacing to the BMX stem's "pillow" base. Then I bought new metric hex-head screws for a more vintage look than the allen bolts.
BOSS ROSS is up and rideable, though the 3 speed seems locked in high gear. Plans are to cruise it at the Choppercabras' Spring Thing on Sunday.
Narrowed those bars bay almost 5" - should be able to slip through between stopped traffic with no problems now.
EDIT: No, all the custom stuff is yet to come. I just decided to check it out mechanically before I start on all the cool stuff.
Smart move. This is one of the best looking muscle bikes I have ever seen.
Saw this old Girl Scout canteen I was saving to use for a minibike project that never materialized... not sure how I feel about it yet.
I think I'm happier with this placement:
I'll see if I can incorporate a bracket to secure it more positively when I fab up my drilled aluminum rear fender.
I serioulsy have a new favorite
I love it. You captures the image of a dragstar into it. The tires are the perfect couple, and the way it's angled, I just love it.
I'm planning on going to the spring thing too, when is it?
(p.s. I have a 3 spd shifter w/derailuer off my Murray F5 Eliminator. I think it's 3 spd. If your interested in it I'll sell it to you for real cheap....*wink wink*)
The cool stuff?!? I'd say the "cool stuff" has been going on for a while now. One of my favourites.
Spring Thing is at noon on Sunday, but people start showing up well before that. Expect the first events to start right at noon. All the details at http://atomiccycles.com. Is it a twist shift or a stick shift? I'm still considering the dual driveline setup, but I don't know if I have enough width in the rear of the frame to implement it properly.
Stick shift & I'll probaly miss the spring thing
X 2 ! :shock: 8)
