looks like a fun ride Micha
Cool bike, and what better place to ride it than the beautiful forests of Germany?! 8)
just because of this thread, i went outside and put 5 speed mountain bike rims with off road tires on roadie jc higgins. and it looks awesome! then! (yeah im not done) i got the roadie rims of that bike and put them on my black cruiser frame, they look awersome!!! :mrgreen: ill post pictures tomorrow
I may have to start out slow...and work my way through this
forum..... before I go "Full Rat" again
My Gary Fisher Klunker...his repro of the original klunker.
Wow amazing builds , from the plain to the radical . Definitely what i have in mind for my 1st. build a Klunker !
Trying to talk my buddy at the bike shop to cut loose with an old Schwinn frame - but its like pulling teeth . lol . He actually tried to talk me into a new school frame for COST but NO ill keep looking . Nothing like the Old Old School i personally think . And it'll be a loaner for when my dad comes up to visite us from Houston . It would even be awesome if i can find a 1944 and dedicate the build to him since thats the yr. he was born .
Parts i have so far are - I know its all bmx and im on a budget but its a start .
Old school bmx cruiser bars / AME grips
Double clamp stem
Sugino 1pc cranks / spyder and 52T ring
Rattraps - HTI
Araya 7Xs laced to SUNTOUR sealed bearing hubs and numerous freewheels
DiaCompe MX brakes / levers
Well ill keep you guys posted when and if i find a frame to start the build .
Made some changes on my orange bike( now Klunker style meets Bobber ).
Before & After pic's. P.S. still need to have the new 26in front wheel powtercoated to match the rear.
..where'd you get the bars on the first bike pictured?
...and is the Klunkers movie available on you-tube...or where can I get it?
these klunkers are the best!
netflix has the movie.
I have a basic Netflix subscription and I can't find the movie,
I requested it weeks ago and still nothing . Cant wait .
Got my Klunker project under way - I found a Schwinn Tornado as a candidate .
