Start your RRB Build Off Journal here!
well i have to say, i could barely crawl my butt outta bed this morning to officially enter the rrbbo number 5. 2 of my dearest friends got married last night (me being the best man, and my better 1/2 the maid of honor.)
things got a little outta hand, as they sometimes do at weddings and we all found ourselves in the clink.
(left to right- our beautiful bride laura,the groom,trevor. na and myself, and john and amanda in the furest cell)
needless to say i must have been excited to start this build off considering i feel like i got ran over by a 1970's front engine dragster! (wink wink nudge nudge, say no more, say no more. )
my entry a 1970's cougar mx 500. a stepping stone of the every poplular sears moto bikes.
my mission for this build, to break free from the norm. to put it to ya and get ya think outside the box.
i'll be eagerly following all of your builds . wanna wish everybody the best of luck!
build well, or die trying!

"...build well, or die trying!" Amen to that Brother. It looks like you are setting us up for something uber wild.
Yo Leigh, i'd seen your previous post showing that frame, but it wasn't until you showed the entire bike that it hit me. My buddy (as a kid) used to have the exact bike, which we used to jump over the hood of a car. We set up a ramp consisting of a 2x12, 2 tires, a 2nd 2x12, and 4 tires. He fell off the ramp the 1st time, so I hopped on, got up a head of steam, and launched it, cleared the car, and landed it smack down on both wheels! Wasnt until I went to ride away that I realised that i'd completely sheared the cotter pin for the pedal arm in half, leaving both pedals parallel to each other
Didn't mean to hi-jack ur thread buddy, but thanks for bringing back the memory!
I noticed the "name pending", how bout a couple suggestions?

Happy to see you and Hsean are representing Ontario this year, all i've found to work with (so far) is, suprise, yet ANOTHER schwinn cruiser frame , and i've already built 2 of those for build offs.
P.S. Still trying to figure out if I can get to the bike show down by your end of the province this year.

i have to say after looking through the entries this year, i have a feeling this will be the best build off yet. you guys are on your game. xddorox i cant believe how far you are on your build already. you's a mad man.
early picks,tonnes of cool entries, i'm feeling the pressure.or perhaps its the tail end of my hangover.
rick thats a cool story and i'm glad you shared it. spent many a day jumping cars on skateboards, but i've never jumped a car with a bike. you's a mad man also!
this frame is a raleigh built frame also, tagged for canadian tire stores. all raleigh parts,cranks etc. just outta curiosity, how much was the raleigh frame aka joe?
karfer, your really stickin it too me with this early pick. the presure, the presures too much , i'll do my best to make ya proud.
and on that note, my mock up pic's for those who are yet to see em.
i'm just hoping i have enough time to complete this build before august. my next 2 months are a little crazy stupid!
I believe it was $30 or 35. Here's a pic.
Ohh nice, I was actualy debating at first on entering my 70's motocross full suspention bmx in the build but picked one of my firestones since I never use it I decided to make it pretty so I do. I look foward to seeing your great build come togeather!
Collector of Raleighs!!
