NICE RACK! That thing is clean!
Here's a couple from my archives,,
64 sears with the 38 Chevy emergency brake handle for a 3 speed shifter
50 Indian with galvanized pipe seat post
wt size pipe is that?! ive been wondering if this was possible or a while.
Great stuff guys. Getting lots of ideas and have my creativity going. Any one have anything new to add?
Thanks for bubbling this thread back to the top. I had never seen it before.
Here are some contributions from me.
BEER RUN had skateboards, beer bottle, beer cans, bottle operner, plus 100+ other beer parts. Car steering wheel, chandelier tube on steering column, etc.
More recently it also had pizza screens in the wheels before it was hung at my buddy's restaurant.
FUGSLEY has water ski rear rack (and soon front rack too). It also has Harley Davidson motorcycle tires.
And one I've never mentioned on this site, the motorcycle in which I dumped the engine, and turned into a pedal bike using moped parts. NONE of this one is bicycle parts.
a messenger bag on my main rider
and a diamond on the front axle (no, i can't explain why. if i find more, you'll keep seing it though)
also been playing with some longtail cargo bike ideas. one with a3 flight bags
and a hardshell golf bag
the other is more like a flatbed, but will have a locking trunk, a pivoting samsonite suitcase
my pimpin' handlebars, from some wrough iron looking pieces i picked up at the habitat restore
my tentative future school colors bike. if i get it worked out in the next couple days, it'll also get a sort of bike hood ornament made from a keychain.
4" rail road reflector on my Cycle Truck.
I had an old kickstand that was probably from a 24" that had been put on 40 years earlier so I extended it by drilling an old pool ball. The can is a used paint hardener can which holds 4 C size batteries and has a switch in the cap.
The 8 ball really worked well in sand.
chopped this emblem for the tank insert i made and put a old foot high beam pedal on the rear sorry ol lady took the camera so i had to use my phone
No sweat,it's cool anyway. Great idea. 8) 8) 8) :mrgreen:
Found both of these in my Dad's barn. About 50 of these old locker tags. Riveted one on the rear fender.
An old drawer pull, minus the ring, on the front "fender"
'51 Chevy spear , '49 Mercury hood ornament , '38 Pontiac turn signal housing as a headlight , Old soldering ash can tank , drill bit pedals , wrench kickstand
I'm not sure why I didn't post this one earlier on. Sickle blade chainguard. Some farm implement for a rear fender, carb parts, and about 20 lbs of unneccessary steel.
Simple welding rod fender brace
All of these were beautiful bikes. I really dug the rear hub/frontwheel suicide brake. That,and the use of car tail lights. It's also good to see peeps still riding burrito bikes. To the guy who built the drop spindles out of brake shoe backings, I gotta try that myself. I got some scrap steel laying around I think.
Skateboard Grip Tape (with flames cut out) for my water ski rear rack on Fugsley.
desktop time, temp,for an instrument panel
i like this. hard to tell in this pic (i never took a specific pic of it) but there's a piece of square tube welded to the middle of the front handlebar for something similar, but i never worked out what it would be
also in relation to the thread, the backrests are from a motorcycle, the thicker foam grips on the rear handlebars is pipe insulation, and the saddlebags are backpacks.
