Post your finished bikes from the build off here
Actually TBO the only thing which doesn't work for me is the battery case, would it fit under the fork crown and above the tyre? Dunno, it's a really nice component I just think it looks out of kilter with the rest of the bike in that location.
Love this bike. I like the battery box. When I first saw it I thought it was a flask, which I thought was super cool. When I realized it was a battery box I was disappointed but it still looks like a flask to me so it's still cool!!!
wait. what? I must be drinking from a flask.
hmm... A flask in place of a water bottle might be pretty neat! I might just try that on my next build.
or maybe one of these strapped to the seattube:
I wonder if the cops would hassle you for carrying around iced tea in one of these.
after looking at the pics a bit I kinda see what you mean. But yet I still see the brass case as one of the design highlights. the brass thumb screws used for tank lacing, the gold pinstripe and the seat rivets were all decided on after seeing the shiny brass.
By the way, the battery case actually fits inside the tank but I didn't feel like messing with the tank every time I needed to change batteries.
Thanks for the compliment JoeyMac. I'm not gonna pretend to be modest (because I' m not ) but there ain't no way that my build comes close to DevilWIng. DevilWing is the King of Spaceliners! Even the Navigator has me awstruck.
Shout at the Devil!
Just took my first real ride on her tonight. The ride is nice and smooth. I was a bit worried that the fork set up would screw up the handling but it's not bad at all. It's a little loose at slow speed but I'm sure I'll get used to it after a few more miles. And although the headlight could be brighter, it works flawlesly. I think I will replace the pedals though since they feel a bit squirely.
There was a kid on his mountain bike that was eyeballing me from across the street and he actually turned around and pulled up next to me as I was taking a little breather to check out the bike. We chit chatted a bit about the build and I told him to check us out on RatRodbikes.com.
The "water bottle cage" with the rubber strap is pretty versatile
Definitely in the top 5 of my all time favorite bikes...ABSOFRIGGINLOOOOTLY BEAUTIFUL!!
My dad's a T.V. repairman...he's got an AWESOME set of tools. I can fix it.
I agree, best idea to mount a tank ever!!! classy looking!
bikes, blood, booze and bumpin' tunes!!!
