A Klunker is the name given to the original mountain bikes that were created in Marin County, CA back in the 70s.
Guy's like Joe Breeze, Gary Fisher, Alan Bonds, Charlie Kelly, Tom Ritchey are some of the pioneers of the sport and they created the Klunker.
You can watch the trailer for the documentary called "KLUNKERZ" here:
You can check out some of Alan Bonds bikes here:
I definably want to build a klunker.. My biggest problem is I don't have near enough time to build all the things I want Maybe a build off would give me the motivation?

since Steve brought this up, i am trying to get him to respond to a start and end date. just want to see if enough of us want to do this are not, so thats why i need ya all to post so we can get a date an go ahead from Steve. the pressure is on Steve,lol.
I think we could do a Klunker inspired mini build off.
This keeps everyone from thinking they have to build a spot on replica of one of Alan's bikes above.
It would totally be for fun...although I may have a prize for best Klunker compliments of Billy Savage.
