    Awesome build, I wonder why they don't make hubs like that front one for BMX bikes? I have always had problems with normal hubs grinding the spoke heads off... :roll:

    What did the huge rear cogs come off of? I see the other bike has one too. I bet it works perfect with the exerciser chainrings.

    Thats what I try to do on most of my builds mix it up =old +new + motorcycle +Hardware store + non bike related parts + anything that looks like it might fit the bike and looks cool while riding. 8) 8)

    Re: FRANKENSTIENMOONSCHWINE update 3.6

    That "baby sprocket" idea is brilliant. How did you get it on there in such a way that it wouldn't spin in place?

    Re: FRANKENSTIENMOONSCHWINE update 3.6

    I get a regular rear sprocket, use as a template, center it on the baby sprocket, trace it , ..now I I file it with a hand file [ while watching TV in my garage] slowly AND leaving the 3 teeth. I'll stop when I get close, and start test fitting on a spare hub part, till it fits snug on the hub part, put on the retainer ring and done :mrgreen: :idea: :arrow: 8)

    Looking good as alway! :D

    I hate colored chains...for some reason they always seem to stand out like a sore thumb and draw waaay too much attention to themselves.

    Very cool build for sure.
