Horse shoe fork brace!
MOON EYES car valve covers NOT for the valves
:idea: :idea: :shock: 8) 8) 8) 8)
GREAT IDEAS!!! 8)
I could imaging the horseshoe also looking cool 'grabbing' the reartire.
Did you first mount actual tubevalves on the frame for those valvecaps?
Yes the valve stems I used are a little thin so for now they are for show and placement. I'll get the fatter ones and make them permanent. Maybe a plate across the opening. The frame is a western flyer x-53. I can't find or afford the attachment rack, so I came up with this. :idea: :shock: :mrgreen:
atv fairing for my bagger project
also that headlight is from a hand held lantern, but i'm going to switch to someone elses idea of an off road aux light. i'm also warming upto the idea of putting some car stereo speakers in the fairing, but i have to find the particular ones i'm wanting to use.
also motorcycle saddle bags for the same project
Ammunition boxes & motorcycle radio
Great, thread, lots of inspiration here!
Thanks guys, you've given me some great ideas for
building a custom bike. Everything I own is pretty
much stock. I look forward to building something
a little wild at some point.
headlight (led, which now resides on the fork)
i used a piece of 3/4 inch brass tubing for handle bars on the black bike, but i cant find that picture right now.
I use evry 6v handheld lantern bucket that I find. But automotive taillights are huge in my area, and right now the fad is an upside down aluminum crutch as a sissy bar. But any decorative pieces I find end up in there too. Including screen door guards and some kind of decorative magazine holder with the cloth removed as a rear rack. Looks sleigh-like to me. This bike was built as a bit of a "nightmare before christmas" inspired bike. Not a theme bike, just inspired.
Are those brake pad backings used basically as drop spindles on the rear of that bottom bike?
Some of that screen door is also used as ornamentation on the rear of the front fender.
not really sure about this one. they're water bottles, but they're too small to go in a normal water bottle holder so i don't know if they'd be considered for a bike or not
3" pipe clamps turned into rack ends and truss rod crown. Rear taillight is conduit nut lens is glass machine indicator lens

yeah. they would have worked great, except i couldnt find (and still cant )find two matching pads. i ended up using flat plate steel. that bike is the orange one in bare metal. you can see the flat metal in the orange picture. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=38717 heres a "how to"
and bike with previously mentioned electrical taped 3/4 inch brass tubing handlebars. :mrgreen:
A piston and connecting rod for a kickstand with a ratchet to turn on.
This is the best pic I could find of one of our turbo mounts...its a 5/8 wrench.
