Start your RRB Build Off Journal here!
Given the length, I'd say hook and ladder instead of the pumper you posted.
it's all about the bikes, man. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=50053
I was going to update my sig line, but I'm not seein' anything worth plagiarizing right now.
The rear springer is killer. I seen it done with the monark springer put never with the schwinn style.
And the full wrap fenders, I like.
turn off the TV and turn on your life.......... Make Something Happen!!
i'm glad you like it. i don't usually like to change the name or theme of a bike i've already started but once i put the diamond plate on it was clear what i had to do.
lol, yeah that would be cool but i'm not sure how i could engineer that
thanks man! i've still got a lot more planned so keep watchin...
Verry cool build man, i really like the flask. Whiskey is good to put the thirst away, or is it whiskey you just dont care about being thirsty . Nice use of springer parts. Looks like it would ride like a Caddy.
haha yes def. a truck. u need another seat and a tiller

How in the heck did you get this to work?! Seems so simple, but I tried it on a bike that I have and the lever won't go back on it's own after you ring the bell. What's the trick?
hahaha yeah, i was wondering when someone was going to ask me that. the trick is installing a extra return spring inside the bell(see pic). i used one of the stiff springs from a gm hei ignition recurve kit which seems to work great.
Now THAT is a great tip. I keep looking at your forks, and I keep fighting the desire to rip them off for my build.
okay, but i want credit and royalties... oh, and if you win we have to share custody of the trophy
If I end up building a Fenderhole springer, I'll definitely give credit where it's due. Was reviewing the thread, and saw your discussion on the difficulty of climbing hills with these laid-back, semi-recumbant cruisers. I had a Dyno several years ago (I think I bought it about '94 or so), and it benefitted greatly from a small bolster across the back of the saddle to push against. A king-and-queen style seat or a sissy bar of some sort could offer similar assistance.
hmmm, that's a good idea. do you have a pic of that seat?
I never took a pic of the bike after the seat mod, but I can tell you that I used nuts on the bolts running through the springs under the seat to secure it. You can see similar "kidney cushions" on some old Indians, etc.
