Keep a diary of your latest build here.
Since last year's Build Off I have picked up some cool frames and other crap to possibly use for builds. If you have followed either of my two builds, you know I do a lot of mock up to wrap my head around what to do next. To that end I am going to use this space to post photos of some of the stuff I have to work with so that I have one place to look at as I begin to think out what my Build Off 7 build will be.

One of my ideas is to do a sidecar build or have a trailer as part of my build.
If I do, then this will be the base for it.
I also have a pair of 26" wheel covers.

This Spaceliner stuff could always be useful
One of my other build ideas is a chopper trike.
This 70s WF trike back end would be part of it. With the kids 20" Nirve Clutch frame up front.

I am kinda leaning towards a non-canti frame.
May even make this Elgin into a 29er with Big Apples
Have this 50s Huffman Custom Liner frame
I love this beehive springer . 1941 Huffman Dayton mix.
Manton and Smith frame
78 Schwinn Spitfire 5 with Atom drum brake
Sears Spaceliner (such a cool frame)
I love to twin straight bars on my Emory Mojave so it could be used

Everyone needs a 54 Chevy hood ornament on their salt flats sidecar. Actually, this isn't the 54 Chevy ornament, but I do have one of those as well.
If I build the trike, I have these Harley Whitewalls. Actually, I guess, I could use them for a side car or trailer too.
There may be a shifter or shifters involved. I got plenty
If I build the trike, I was thinking of using this behind the seat
Plenty of tire choices
Pair of cream Fat Franks.
Bontrager red line Hanks
28" Big Apples
24x3 Thick Bricks
Red Typhoon Cords

I don't know if it will be this build or not, but I plan to someday make a banana seat or rack out of wooden water skis.
By the way, I sold the hardware from the Cypress Garden skis for $46.
