    Re: Streched OCC chopper hooligan

    You hit the nail on the head with the pieces of pipe thats excatly what I was planning.The oval pipe is a neat idea but I was only able to salvage the 9" I used on my frame or I would have streched it a little more without moving the seat back.The white walls are painted with rattle can I know that sounds Ghetto but it works great,I did this on a ratrod Goped Bigfoot I bulit a few years back and it worked good,the trick is to use good paint and only enough paint to cover {like two thin coats} and it works without cracking all over...I rode the Goped for over a year before I sold it and the tires looked as good as the day they were done! :mrgreen:

    Hey guys thanks for all the encouragment and nice comments :D Well I decided not to do the port holes in the frame but I did peak the bottom tube,here it is in primer.It is really straight but the camera angle gives a optical illusion....[​IMG]

    After the final assembly the family and I went on a nine mile ride and it went smooth with no problems!The best part is I put less than 80 dollars in this whole build,gotta love that! :mrgreen:

    I used the reflector bracket on the rear wheel for a shout out to RRB and the bike name on the back side check it out... [​IMG][​IMG] :roll: I know a coaster brake wouldnt tear all the paint off my wheels and probably work better but I was on a budget,maybe in the future. :lol:

    Re: HOOLIGAN "Giving MotorCycle tires a try"

    After seeing all you guys putting MC tires on your bikes I thought a set of Front and rear MC tires would look good on the Hooligan.I went to a MC shop and they had about 60 used tires laying out back up for grabs.I picked up a Harley WW MV/85/B16,a Metzler 140/90/16 both rear and two front tires Metzler 100/90/19 ,90/90/21.I tried the WW rear tire, if fits the Occ wheel but Ill need to make the dropouts longer,worry about chain clearence,And man these tires are REALLY HEAVY maybe 5 times the OCC tire!That would be alot of rolling resistance if I used the MC set.I think ill leave the Hooligan the way it is and use the MC tires on a future build.As far as the front goes the 19"tire is to small to fit the 24" wheeland the 21" is to big...so much for that idea....But I still think a matching set of MC tires on a bike would be cool 8)
