Keep a diary of your latest build here.
Right On! .... Cool looking bike!
Turned out great!
Thanks, can't wait to see how your chopper comes out too
I kinda like the handlebars back (chopper style) but I know a lot of people like them more vertical
Ultimately, I'll adjust them so the little guy feels the most comfortable
Thanks Skipton. I think I remember a wise man saying :
""No 40 yr old six foot tall man should ride a 20" ""
From my picture, you know why that holds true for 50 yr olds too (unless of course they are having fun)
Can't wait to see your CW done.
Thanks for the compliment, Nick. I used a lot of information from your StingRay build off, so thanks again!
Thanks MMcdaniels. Your Sting ray is so off the charts!!
Really innovative and you've got mad fab skills. Mine just a concept that I figured I could tackle.
Here is one more picture
I realize I need to put some color on it so some red accents/lettering will be put on the chain guard and head badge.
I'll post the complete bike hopefully in a couple of days
Thanks for looking
Got it done tonight, whew
Tried to do some lettering on the chain guard but ended up with permanent marker
Maybe later I can strip it off and get someone else to do some pinstriping/lettering
Got a reflector for the sissy bar coming yet but from every other angle its kinda reflective already
Changed out the pedals, they were too wide and I remember how it hurt when I was a kid and scraped my shins on the rat traps
Still needs more color but that may be after the holiday, I'll see how he might want to schnazz it up a bit more
Got a awesome homemade Christmas Card and cookies from the little guy and his mom last night, SWEET!
I'll try to get some sunshine shots in the next few days
Thanks for the compliments and support through out the build, it helped.
Hope everybody gets their projects or shopping done soon
Looks great Merry Christmas!
^^^^ What they said!!!
Nice Job! What a great gift idea! he will love it!
Hey Thanks a lot guys!
Went for a shakedown ride today, wanted to make sure it was ready
Must have been pretty silly seeing a 50 year old crunch down or standing up on a 20" bike
Took it to Longfellow Community gardens with the oak trees
Then down to the Mississippi River
Here is kinda a artsy one
Was sweating by the time I got home, my poor knees
Gotta adjust the rear hub a bit but otherwise it felt really solid on ice, snow, and grass
Had to do the Christmas tree shots
Closeup on my brilliant detail work with a sharpie
He's getting it tomorrow but I was promised a ride with the little guy later this week
Think I'll take the Spaceliner
Happy Holidays and Thanks for looking
Love the tree pic! and bike path pic!
Very cool! Merry Christmas!
