Start your RRB Build Off diaries here!
Check out the "MADE IN BALI" Build Off Frame I am bringing back with me.
It's going to be tough widening the rear end to fit my 24x3 Thick Bricks
I think there are few people in BO7 that could help with that.
I paid $2.50 for the chainring and $5.00 for the bike.
I would've struggled to not buy half a dozen of those bikes! Awesome.
I can afford $5, it's the plane ticket that gets me.
Everytime we get out of the car, vendors swarm us trying to sell trinkets. I usually politely tell them no, but I couldn't resist the bike. If he had more, I would have bought more.
Funny! There will be plenty of details to fill in on my build-off bike once I get back home and lay out my parts and frame choices .
Ha! Nice bike B! Yo hurry back it's too many of dang wratters! They coming out the wood works! I've thrown the kitchen sink at em, but they just keep multiplying! SOS-HELP!!!!!!

I found one even better last night. When we arrived in Yogyarkarta I asked one of the Becak (front ride pedicab) drivers where to find old bike parts. He told me about the night market for secondhand items. Took a taxi for a grand total of $10 including tip and him waiting there for me for 30 minutes. The shop was awesome with a bunch of old wide Brooks like springer saddles and bunches of unusual headbadges and tail reflectors and ......
The only problem was I couldn't get the old guy to bargain with a even $10 and he was asking over ebay prices. I had four seats picked out and about 15 badges and a big bell and some front fender doo dads and rear fender reflectors. I was will to spend about $150 US (which is a LOT of money here) but he was in the $300+ range the whole time.
Will post photo of his cool stall when I get back to the states.
I picked up two more frames today.
A Becak rickshaw like pedicab and a penny farthing.
$30 total invested in the three bikes that I am bringing home.
