    Well, i've finally decided to be part of the build off.
    First time for me... yesssss...I'm a newbie :mrgreen:

    Don't be fooled, don't expect to find fins in this build, I'm not a mopar addict.
    So why call my build like this??? Here is the answer:

    [​IMG]

    This is what I'm starting with because that's all I have... No crazy or killer frame here, I'm so jealous when I see what kind of stuff is available for most of you.

    So, here it is, probably the ugliest frame of the build off!!!!!!! No idea of the year (I guess mid 60's) or country of birth...

    [​IMG]

    The idea is to mix old and new parts with the look of a vintage track bike. Not my preferred style and certainly not your's too but want to build what's inside my head for some times. Also want to go the rat way (hey we're on RRB!!!!!)so I want a modern vision of the billion times seen combo red wheels/whitewalls. Not easy to explain with my poor english but I have it in my mind.

    Now lets go to dismant... wait no...have to clean up my garage before anything else.

    More soon...I hope :D

    Apparently, you missed my Free Spirit (Modrophenia). At least yours has some elegant lugs. :lol:

    Lugged frame... an awesome front fender and a stylish chain guard. That is a nice frame! Just throwin an idea your way but a fixed gear would be cool, or a flip-flop hub so you have free wheel or fixed, just an idea! Cool build!

    Re: The Forward look...

    Wow!!! Didn't expected so much feedback!!! Well, didn't expected feedback at all, it's not even started :mrgreen:
    Garage is now clean so tonight i dismantle it.

    To answer to questions:
    No turn signal but reflectors on the sides of the tailight. And it's a bell hanging from the handlebar. Can post pic of it if interested. Flip flop rear hub is on its way.

    Re: The Forward look... Naked frame...

    Well almost...., didn't had the right tools to finish. Tomorrow, clean up and maybe strip it to bare metal. Spend at least 20 minutes looking at 22 balls from 50 that make the bearing when I've removed the fork!!!! :mrgreen:

    Pics of bell, handlebar for those who asked and OEM anti theft system.
