So here's my entry to Bonine , a Prewar Snyder built Hawthorne fastback .
My only plan is to actually finnish in time unlike last year !
Frame and possible fender set
looks like some oe scallops under the red spray bomb
may need to clean out my outdoor bike shop
we'll see what it turns into
panelman, cherrydeuce my parts pile is almost overwellming with over a hundred frames and enough parts to build most of them but I just dont have that much time left on this earth to build them all, some of this stuff has to go
I am such a horder somebody send help
Those pics are like the Highlights magazines I used to enjoy as a kid in the doctors office, so many hidden items. Crutch sissy bar, just cool! I've just been bitten by this building bug... no one let my honey know this is the way my shed will look soon, shhhhh
I had a busy weekend doing yard work and cleaning out the clutter under the awning but I did spend a little time on a quickie mock up with a few parts from the pile that may work with this build so here is the progress.
a sturmy dyno hub is a maybe if it work, I have a few of these laying around.
I made these brackets for a different frame, I will have to modify or make a new pair for this frame if this setup stays on the build(Ford Snake is doing something
simular so this is an iffy)
slipped this pair of 60s style extended forks on but they are not quite long enough and not well made ??
at this angle the chain line looks ok though I have not checked it and that is a Bendix 2sp. auto hub but mounted to an s7 rim so the tire choice is slim I might have a different rim I could lace to it
I didn't have a lot of time this week for the bike and I'll spare you all the details of going through 5 hubs to get enough good parts to build 1 but heres the finnished work ready to lace up.
went through the scrap metal pile looking for tubeing, I think I can use some of this old broken bed frame for the build.
This little psycho monkey escaped his cage, I had to stop work to play a little !
Yep you gotta try Joe and yep Luke I thought it had some nice curves myself so here's the bed frame being repurposed...a circus trailer to haul the psycho monkey in from town to town
a jogger / stroller to victimize
now to dig the welder out and see if it still works , its been stored for quite a while.
