    here is my bike handmade

    I just used from head tube has built bike peugeot
    there are only painting that is being

    I made the wheels with a three-speed hub and coaster brake
    tube used was bent with an old folding

    The pedalboard is a giant bearing on where I milled two shells aluminum
    I cut the handle in the same material and welded it all
    to hold together, I rolled a piece of flat iron welded on the frame

    the fork is voluntarily without suspension to avoid touching the ground, rolling


    I could not answer a lot because I'm not very good in English and translations are imperfect

    up to photos:

    very great design dont stop build you have good ideeas
    aboute aluminium welding you must to have minimum 4mm thick left to be strong enough
    or weld and polish to be sure . my opinion

    Re: limo bike

    hello

    welding I did as you said, this is the first time I weld aluminum
    I learned the lesson for next time!

    otherwise I'm happy because the painter is progressing well on the bike
    I was amazed by his finishing work on the fork!
    (Primed in gray)
    I'm anxious to see the rest
