With about 10 days to go till the start of the second Muscle Bike build-off, I am starting to get my plans and pieces in order, here is the basic plan, things have changed a little since drawing this up, but not much: Found this repro 16" tractor tread style tire for the front: Still a lot of things undecided on the build at this point, such as how I am going to make that curvy top tube? :? But I am sure it will sort itself as the build progresses. As with my other builds, I will start with the back wheel, get that made, so I have a sense of proportion for the rest of the bike. Rear tire will be a 195/50/16 on a custom 16x8 rim, a bit smaller diameter than what I have been doing, this one measures out to 23.5" as opposed to the last one which was a full 26" but I want this to be a smaller-more nimble bike. I have been toying with the idea of building a wide coaster hub for the rear wheel, for the simplicity of looks and the lack of cables, but part of me still wants to add gears, I was really impressed by Glen's bike last time with it's full gear-set that made it an absolute rocket, so will probably end up making this a 6 speed derailleur set up with a disc brake. May even throw a front 3 speed chainring at it and go for 18 gears... Looking forward to starting on October the 1st! Luke.
