Discussion in 'BUILD OFF 10 DISCUSSION' started by schwinn boy, May 17, 2015.
I'm seeing a lot of roadsters/klunkers being built this year. Anyone see any other trends?
Spaceliners. There are quite a few in the build off this year.
I have noticed a lot of awesome as well. Awesome is a good attribute in bike building.

This is my personal favorite trend.
Street Sweeper fenders
Bikes with big car or motorcycle tires...
Then I'm glad I'm different. But that's nothing new......
Biggest trend has to go to vid threads.
Rat rods bikes build threads have jumped forward into the future.
Explaining yourself on camera is much easier than typing your thoughts on screen.
Will have to give it a go.
I think i'm seeing a bunch more bikes with clip-ons. That was my plan from the start too so its gong to be cool to see how others turn out.
I'm seeing a trend of a TON of bikes... 112 and counting!!
Are there more racks than usual being used or are they quite common in build offs generally?
Bare metal builds seem popular too. I just need to find a way for mine to be 'unique, yet simple' (like the builder)....
Simple seems to be a trend with several builders this year (including me).
Simple is the new complicated!
Actually, simple is more complicated. The less to distract you, the more obvious mistakes and bad designs are. Learned that from the old codger who taught me how to pinstripe. Less lines = less hiding mistakes.
Mine is still in the works.
Glorious, come-from-behind, last-minute finishes.
I hope I can be one of them!
