Discussion in 'BUILT FROM SCRATCH' started by Hoeha, Mar 12, 2011.
i knew youd come up with something great :mrgreen:
thats a good question. it wont be elaborate, cause it ll scratch in my tiny shed... Cant go wrong with black
But first blasting and primer.
I hate to drag up threads if they're dying, but what happened with this project Hoeha?
This thread is not dying, it's just resting...
It's still as in the last pictures and it rides great!
All the projects are resting for that matter. The missus wants some work done in the backyard, so that goes first... But, as i'm doing that, at least i can work on a nice 1:10 RC rockcrawler course :mrgreen:
Trying to avoid this, in order to get as much miles (on the bike), as I can. :mrgreen:
Speaking of which, feel like to ride a cruise, some time ? DHC (Duh Haag Cruisin) en VCorps (Veenendaal) are quite active. It's fun.
That would be cool W!
Are you going to the hotrod surf weekend the 7th of may? Thinks i will be there. Maybe we can compare agenda's there :mrgreen:
Got a cruise tommorow, and i realized last week, that i didn't have bike ready... So this project came out of the shed to be finished.
Here's how it sits now, after a quicky paintjob
And some details:
Rear rim decal
looks even better with some color on it :mrgreen:
Thanks! I was doubtful about painting it. I liked the primer look. But this worked out pretty okay i guess
Hey dude,it;s monstrous (in the good sence). Looks smashing in this black coat. And awesome details, of course. Btw, where's the cruise that you're gonna ride? Send in a riders report afterwards,'cause I'm curious about the handling of the bike.
Maybe next sunday (30th),I'm going to ride the last cruise of the year in The Hague. That is: if the wife gives me time off. :mrgreen:
But even then I'm not sure,it's a 40 k ride,just to get there.(and 40 k back). :shock:
The ride was the 16th of octobre in Breda. It was good fun! My brother joined me on the stretch ratty (which he owns now)
The bike was super comfortable actually. I wasn't even tireed when i got home. But i think we only made about 25 to 30k.
Last saturday was nice weather too, so i took this bike for a ride and ended up riding across the moerdijkbrug and back, which was about 38km. Still was pretty comfortable. Well, at least not more uncomfortable then a normal roadbike. Took about 2 hoours, so the speed was okay too.
Good to hear that it's a comfy ride. Allways nice to know,that you haven't done all this work for nothing. Now we definitely have to ride some cruise together,sometime. Like I said, next sunday,between 12.00 and 13.00,Grote Markt,Den Haag. Last cruise of the season. If it's not too windy, I'll try to get there (by bike). Allways welcome, if you feel like riding along. :mrgreen:
aH Cr*p! I have other obligations this weekend i'm affraid. But, next season, we'll surely get a chance to ride some cruises together.
It was a great cruise, Mr. H. Too bad you couldn't make it. Done some 120 k,but it was worth it. Dumped some pics on the DHC-forum. :mrgreen:
See ya 'round.
Darn, 120k, respect!
Too bad i missed it (again).
Awsome build, no doubt it's an evil bike.
In this pic
yes i am in Holland, and the bell crank (i do not know the exact name either, so you might be correct, i don't know ) isn't for sale without the clickbox (for the handlebars) and cable. Actually, i haven't found a site that sells them yet. Mostly because i haven't looked for it. I usually get one at my LBS....
Yep... that's right, the don't sell that part only.
Were did you get your's? (What does LBS mean)?
I got it at my local bike store (LBS)
