    well mine is done it was a rather quick build but I am happy with the results considering the timeframe and what I had to work with
    1970's firestone warrior with a variety of donor bikes all thrown together to create simply klunkin.
    hope y'all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed building her.

    I think that was the quickest build I have seen.

    thanks guys.
    yeah she was a quick build I had everything and I didn't do anything fancy I basically removed all unneccesary parts and added some different ones from my junk pile and called her done I don't need her to be fancy painted or have gears or shiny parts I am glad y'all are digging her she was a fun build.

    you are right brothaman it only took me 2 days to build but I had the idea ever since I found this bike just had to wait for the money to buy it
    so it took me a lot of thinking and waiting but the actual build came together really quick plus I had a relatively clean and complete bike to start with I just had to tear her all down and regrease and repair everything and add the parts I wanted I burned a lot of midnight oil during the build though. I would say I got about 28 hours into the build and about 1 hour of test riding lol.

    thanks oddjob
    yeah she is ready to hit the trails and actually does quite well on the trails I rode her in a dried up drainage ditch near my house and the only issue was very loose sand and the skinnier tires grabbing into it but she does well both on pavement and off so I guess she kind of is a klunker even though she is running cruiser tires lol.

    Keeping it clean and simple is a good thing.

    I love the quickie builds that we get every year.
    It just shows how fun build offs are and even if you only have a short amount of time you can still come out with a cool bike that you enjoy.
    BRAVO!
