Let's see who can build the coolest rat!
Thanks for the comments, guys!
Hope the moped-f o r k works out, looks okay so far... It's a bit heavier than a normal f o r k, I hope it turns good. If not, I've got an old ATB f o r k for spare.
Máááán, you can't write f o r k or f u e l t a n k , it's all flip,flip,flip, what the #@&*?!
What the F O R K? Yeah it took me like 5 minutes to see "the guy" trying too steak your bike. Boy im slow.
We were Eating Potatoe's..drinking Cambells soup...
and Blowing up The Old Lady next door.
..you know, the usuall Friday night Stuff.
Did some small detail work this morning. Saw nice dice valve caps on the net, and thought: I can do this myself with old dice!
Drilled a hole (through the 1), made a flip hot and flipped it, while turning into the dice. Works!
After making the valvecap-dice, I tried to fit the bearings of the moped-forq into the frame...they were too big (see picture). Tried the bearings of the ATB-forq I got on spare: way too big, forq doesn't even fit the tube, so no ATB-forq on spare. Luckily I found bearings in my bike-trash-crate that would fit! And they're in a cup-holder-thingy, so that's even easier when putting it all together.
That is so TOUGH looking!
wow..I love it..
that is a seriously turning into a wicked looking Rat!!!!
I have not seen Spring Forks like that since
the 70's style Moto-x ( dirt bike looking ) kids bikes..
It brings back a whole bunch of VERY GOOD memories
of when I was a kid!
keep it up Skywalker...
that is an incredible looking Bike!
Are those the same bikes I remember, Kev? With plastic f ueltanks, looking like genuine motocross flips?
I'm now cleaning an old set of wheels, chrome is a quite stained and the bearings are really dirty.
Today I polished the rims, cleaned the coaster brake thoroughly and put everything back together. The wheels are pretty okay, they're not totally straight, have to do some work there. I never took a coaster brake apart before, but it was a piece of cake ; )
