    Re: Fugsley - 2/26 - Ride w fellow RRBer JoshFromGa PenFarthing

    Your Fugsley is a really cool one of a kind. Its funny to see what people are making from these occ stingrays. I have one I aquired last fall and Ive been getting some ideas going all winter on how I want to chop it up. Those penny fakethings have been around for a few years now, heres one I built last summer called boilermaker.

    Re: Fugsley - 100% Finished! - Another Fat Tire bike

    Those bikes are part of the fun at the Tour De Fat. I have ridden or attempted to ride most of them last year in Durham NC.
    Somewhere on my other computer at my other house are pics of these bikes. I have a few other Tour De Fat pics posted at the bottom of this page of my blog.

    Re: Fugsley - 3/6 Dahon Payback

    Fugsley is made from a 1986 Dahon Classic folding bike that I picked up at a yard sale for $25. These sell for about $50-$100 on ebay. I finally got around to cleaning up some of the parts I stripped off and put them on ebay. So far I have bids of $91 just for the rear rack, front fender, and rear fender. I have less than $125 total (including paint) invested in Fugsley. All I have to do now is sell a couple of more Dahon parts and Fugsley is free, but more than likely I will end up making money and keeping my wacky ride. :mrgreen:

    Re: Fugsley - 3/6 Dahon Payback

    I ended up getting $177 for 5 scrap parts that I took off of the Fugsley donor bike!!

    That's just nuts. I only got $255 for the collectable Stainless Dahon that I sold. I guess I really should have parted it out too.

    This is making me consider parting bikes on eBay.

    I still have the 16" SA 3 Speed wheelset to sell too, once I clean up the chrome a bit. :wink:
    I don't think I will need it for any RRB build!!!!
    Actually, maybe I could build a mini muscle bike with shifter and monster apes!!

    Monster apes you say? Did you buy the Nirve apes? How do they compare to the ones I just built? (I guess I need to measure mine.)

    Man, those are KING KONG apes!!!
    I did get the Nirves and they aren't that big.

    I could find an old kids bike and do something like this with the 3 speed 16" wheels and monster apes

    Re: Fugsley - 3/6 Dahon Payback

    Took Fugsley for a ride to look at some of the pre St Pat's tourists.
    You may not be able to tell, but Forsyth Park Fountain has green water flowing out of it!! Plus a gajillion Azaleas are in full bloom throughout the city.
    Tourist season has fallen on Savannah (and for good reason if I do say so myself).

    Re: Fugsley - 3/16 - Pre-Saint Pat's Ride

    My wife and I took my new Nirve Cannibal chopper out at lunchtime. Then I took it out again after work. But then I switched rides to Fugsley. I just can't resist sharing this beast with the tourists. It was definitely a tourist attraction tonight. I would guess that at least 40-50 people took a photo of Fugsley tonight. I let some sit on the water ski. I told a bunch of them that I was going to offer a bike taxi service later.

    I didn't take many photos myself, but here are a few with a pipe and drum corps from New Jersey.

    And here is an absolutely horrible photo of a tall bike that is hauling a 10 foot long tree limb behind his bike.
    Like I always say, you never know what you are going to see in Savannah.

    Re: Fugsley - 3/17 St' Pat's Fun

    Went on a few bike rides through the huge crowds here in Savannah yesterday for St. Pat's Day.

    Started the morning with a ride down to the staging area (just 6 blocks South of my house).

    Here is the giant 7' Leprechaun that has been in the parade for years. He could almost hop right up on Fugsley.

    Then later on after the parade I rode down to City Market

    Fireman drum and pipes from Idaho. Cool fireman trip on the kilts.

    People were using this passed out guy as a photo op and prop. As I cam up with Fugsley they wanted the bike in the photos as well.

    Here is another passed out partier being assisted home by a friend and pedicab.

    But my favorite photo (other than the giant leprchaun) is Ronald McDonald with Fugsley

    It is always fun to see where you and Fugsley go.

    Looks like those guys are from Boise. :D

    WOW! I love it! Does it weigh a ton like Fugsley?
    I love the seat and the drivetrain and so much more!
    Great looking fun build!
