Discussion in 'BUILD OFF 13 FINISHED BIKES' started by heartlandcruisers, Jul 21, 2018.
what i started with interesting side story this build was only about 15 dollars worth of paint the rest of the parts i had laying around it was definitely low budget goes to show it don't take a million dollars to build a cool bike chain was color matched with the same paint i used on my frame i did not get to add the cate due to the rear rack was too small and i am happy with the way the rear rack looks as it sits
It looks like a good rider, too!
thanks it rides but comfort is a low 1 at best but i built it for looks mainly it is OK but the lack of seat foam kills my 45 year old butt i have been riding it around and it gets looks surprisingly more then i expected i tried some new techniques with this one like the painted chain and color matching everything and actually following a theme kept some of the dents and rust to make it look enjoyed the bike shop i got it from s shocked i made it look so good they were gonna part it out no bike is truly dead
Another nice bike. well done.
Another heartland cruiser crosses the Finished line!
Pop open a Coke and celebrate!
thanks it is not quite what i wanted but it is done for now whn funds allow me to do so i will add the decals and better wheels
you know it i actually used some of your ideas when i put the white parts on it i left them dented and rusty on purpose to give it a used look thanks for the ideas they fit well into the build
Great transformation, looks sweet.
thanks i was just out enjoying it as we speak the generator kicked in finally so i guess everything work too i was having trouble getting the generator to work but tonight on my way home i kicked in
This was a fun modern day tanker build with old school vibes.
thanks bro yeah i wanted some old school flavor to it the bike itself is 1988 some of the parts are 1979-1980 era so not quite era correct but i like the results i ride this thing every day and everyone likes it i had the front wheel break a hub bearing case s i got a different front wheel but it is temporary until i get another correct wheel but i am considering swapping the wheels anyways with better ones so i may just leave it it cruises better with the newer wheel on it anyways
btw here is the link to the build thread if anyone wants to see the progress and how many things changed in this build
