Hello, everyone. For a little bit i was hesitating to post this build here, because it does not really fit the category of old-timers, but now when it became anything-goes topic i am glad to take part in it! This is a first time i am participating in a build-off on this website, and i hope not the last one The story begins with me going to CSI by Chopaderos in Amsterdam this summer. I have stayed in Netherlands for some more time and since my bike got a bit damaged in the way i decided to ship it back to Poland where i live instead of riding it. I had an agreement with some guys who did run from NL to PL and back time to time, so i thought it would be fun to get few extra bikes to work with later on (many of you are probably smiling now because you guys know what it means ). Once searching through website called Marktplaats (local craiglist) i found Dyno Glide with 144 spokes wheels. It looked awful, but the buyer told me that it is in good rideable condition, so i have picked it up for 65 euro. When i arrived i was amazed. The bike was awfully, brutally rattle-can painted black, wheels were painted mixture of blue and purple, rust was everywhere. But under the paint it was Tiki Taboo! Non-original wheels (cool 144 spokes though), missing tiki, missing tank, torn and re-wrapped saddle, but original tires and other nice original parts. The bike looked like hurt dirty puppy, that would loose the believe in humanity forever if i won't adopt him, wash and feed! I got the bike and decided to restore it later. Unfortunately i was careless enough not to take any good "before" pictures, but i will try to see what i can do. So that later has come. I was figuring out what can i do with this bike, considering the fact that Dyno frames are too short for me to ride them myself, so the bike is made to be sold later. That means i try to make it look nice in a little budget. And then i realized, probably the best looking Dyno Glides are Mooneyes! I should just make a replica of that bike! 1001 of 1000 I have a set of Dyno Deuce forks lying in the garage, 144 spokes wheels painted black would fit the look perfectly! The other interesting thing is that i decided to just powdercoat wheels assembled. I have been reading internet for a while about it, and people say very different things about it, but to sum up the coat would hold well, but it would be impossible to true them or change the spokes without destroying the whole paint layer. Considering the fact that 144 spoke wheels are quite strong and rarely need to be trued i decided to take my chances. Tomorrow i am picking the bike up form the powder coat. I have made the short front fender by cutting the short rear fender from Electra "Punk" i had lying in my garage. Depending on the result of coating (it had a rusty spot, so chances are sandblasting made a hole there, just next to attachment point) i might use or not use that fender for that project. The alternative is buying new, but to keep the budget low i want to use as many old parts i had as possible. The precision of the copy will not be perfect, since i am lacking of original chain-wheel that is extremely hard to find here in Europe. The front fender i got has no duck tail, the rear one on Tiki has extra mount on the tip. The kickstand on Mooneyes was similar to early-production Glides, it was attached under the bottom bracket, and the one on Tiki frame is integrated. So a careful eye will see the difference between this replica and original production Mooneyes. But i am not pretending to make it absolutely same, for me the most fun is in the process Still i will try to use as many original or same-as-original parts as possible for this build. Wooh, there is a lot of text! Hope you guys did not get tired reading it Soon there will be more pictures i believe!
