those forks with those bars are going to be sick!
made a funky kick stand this eve... having fun... - T.
You're the king of kool details
Cool stand. I'm curious where the rusty saw blades goin' now! :shock:
Made sprocket yesterday - used lawn mower shroud thing to fill the holes...- worked on frame, sanding, etc. will post pics of that later - cheers guys, T.
no way, don't paint it! That looks tough as it is. looks like art.
awesome custom chainring! I too am curious where the rusty saw blade will go. I was thinking that was going to be part of the chainring, but then again you'd likely take your right foot off with that.
Hey, not sure abut the saw blade yet - not for cranks - may or may not use.
Finally got frame sanded down, took forever as usual - anyways, got it primered too - - decided to go for a satin black & red primer look - not sure yet. I took forks apart and sanded & primered those as well. More soon - Oh, the spikes are "electricity spikes" used on top of buildings and stuff - they are aluminum, so will polish up NICE - I cut the tubes next to them out of old electrical conduit - will paint the tubes - more to come!
AND, yes, I am READY! - Happy 4th!
lookin good so far
sorry for delayed posting - been slammed with work and stuff - have made small amounts of progress, got soem parts painted satin black, frame will stay primer red/brown - should have rims in form CCR next day or so to clean/paint - the aluminum lighting rods shined up NICE, I had to make some black tubing "spacers/extenders" to attach to spot under seat where the factory x-53 back fender thing was installed - has to extend the tubes back, then install the spikes (held on w/bolts, no welding). — cheers!
That thing is so COOL looking!............But you may need a WEAPONS permit to ride it! :lol: ..NICE
Yeah, this is looking dangerous!!! I love it! There are tons of great ideas on this bike.
YIKES! LOOK AT DEM' SPIKES! Crazy man, crazy!
that's pretty much in a league of it's own my friend. it's bad ...!
I think some really brite LED's for a brake light...naw I think a no tailgaiting sticker would be just fine. Seriously looking good.
Man, I think we could all use spikes like that on our bikes, just in case any cops try to knock us off them :roll:
Looks good and mean!
Hey thanks guys - been messing with trying to make a headlight for two night now - still have nothing - also going to make a small plate, but can;t find the parts I need yet - once I get the rims in I can at least take more complete pics - thanks again! -Cheer, T.
OK quick update - made some good progress last night. Got the 24" rims in from CCR trade (thanks man!). Cleaned them up, but still going to paint the inside/spokes - going to leave the edges chrome. The spokes are a little old & wobbly, I tightened down what I could, but wanted to reinforce them somehow so I;m going to try these old hub-caps - hate to cut them, but I went for it!
Started making frame plate, out of pice of aluminum - I wanted it to follow the curve of the two black bars - should be OK.
Added some ladies to the rear drop-out area.
The headlight is a booger, nothing seems to go together right yet - it has to fit in the brackets right, and look al little beefy, so far it'll be the distributor cap. Anyways, having fun! Cheers, Troy. Thanks for looking.
IT IS WHAT IT IS!
The hub caps are gonna be a nice touch! 8)
luv the mud flap chix
