    Here's what I'm thinkin for my next build (sketched these over dinner tonight-my gf hates bikes at this point lol) I've got two more stingrays to sacrifice. Not sure which one I'll go with-prolly a combination of the two. I might try it w rear suspension. I've also for a super moto downhill fork that I've been saving for something...this just might be it 8)

    That's what I'm thinkin...I want the bars lower than the tank and headlight. The more I look at it, I think I'll do the bottom frame with the top fork setup. I might get started on it tonight

    Keep the bike(s), change GF (its gonna happen anyway, might as well get it over and take the pain now, it'll only be worse later).

    Re: No Use for a Name...

    I'm between B and C...I changed the tank on c to the same as B. Leanin' heavily toward C right now. Here are some color schemes I've been playing with. Leaning toward C on it too I think.

    Re: No Use for a Name...

    With your changes, the attitude of the C is a little more aggressive than B, which has that 'laid back' fork rake. I think C might handle better as a bicycle and B as a motorcycle at speed. C just seems to be a little more 'in your face', and although it doesnt have quite the flow to my eye, I still like it for some reason.........

    Re: No Use for a Name...

    Agreed-C has been my fav all along...not sure why either. I think A has the best lines, but something about C just works for me. Heres what it'll be from the top

    Re: No Use for a Name...

    Hey man, I'm lovin' these designs! I like the way you're goin' with these things, right off the bat of those first lineups I was gonna suggest B with C's front end. I was wondering if you don't mind a little artistic input along with everyone elses help, cause I saw this and it instantly made me think of this.
    (was gonna do some good editing but my compies actin funny so MS pain to the rescue! :?)

    So I see these type builds and I Like em, but (not trying to offend :oops:) in my own opinion they kinda look like plows and I think they're a little over done, like I said I like 'em, but that's just kinda my 2 cents issue that keeps poppin' up on my shoulder whenever I see 'em. That being said Ive always seen a potential sweet and unique frame shape in them. Ive always wanted to see a 'fancypants' bar on the inner frame to kill deadspace and have the bottom end lifted up so it has a bobber or a hotrody 'High-boy' look to it. (MS paint was being... well MS paint, so I wasnt able to get the best shape out of it, maybe rework it a bit if you like it, but you get the idea :roll:)

    I guess if I tried hard enough I could maybe cut and chop a couple of frames and maybe get something kinda like this, but I don't have the resources or ability to do a frame like this anywhere near as good as you probably could.

    Just thought I'd throw in some brain food for the effort. Keep up the sick work man!

    Re: No Use for a Name...

    Thx guys for the feedback! SectionEightLife- your edits look good man, but I really like low frame. We're talking about doin air ride so it would lay frame w no kickstand. 8) Sensor- the show starts soon and the pit gets nasty from time to time lol. UnDerzon3- i agree, but my bobber is brown w teal wheels (as well as the trike), so I think I'm gonna stick to the plan. I'm gonna try to do the tank in wood, or at least airbrush it to look like wood.

    I must say any combo of A,B,C will be a sick ride!!! Are you guys doin the buildoff as a thread here on RRB or just between friends?It would be cool to see six of these built at once! 8) :mrgreen:

    Re: No Use for a Name...

    Anybody is welcome to join in! I posted it in the challenges section. I don't think any of my other buddies are on rrb yet, but I'm sure they will be soon. So far, the smack talk is a on Facebook, and I might do a page just for the buildoff. It's gonna be a lot of fun-everybody is doin completely different stuff, so it'll be interesting...some real talented guys involved, so I'm anxious to see the outcome. I might just have my .... handed to me on this one :mrgreen:
