Post your finished bikes from the build off here
Fantastic, a rare beauty. A great parts mix with some unique touches and I love the contrast between the shiny and the .. er.. not shiny. What would it look like with the skinny front wheel?
Thanks for the compliments guys. That's a good question MadMick. I think I might have to check what the skinny tires look like on this thing. I think the road bike axles are too big to fit in the fork though. I'll give it a shot.
That is an awesome build!
I have a couple questions for you...what are you powering the headlight with? I mean, I know it is a battery pack, but what kind and where did you get it? How many volts is the lighting system and how bright is it?
The battery pack is from one of these:
Scored on Ebay for $3.95. It is a miners headlight/flashlight. It takes 4 D-cell batteries. Inside the bike headlight I have a Krypton bulb made for Maglites with 4-6 D-cell batteries. So I guess the headlight is about as strong as an out of focus Maglite. I plan on getting one of those 120 LED flashlights on ebay and stuffing the LED's into the headlight housing.
By the way, I bought three of the miners lights for my other bikes. They will pop up faily often but there are times when there are none to be found. The one shown is cool because it is all brass and it has a switch built into the top.
Forgot to add.
ten minutes ago I found a flaw to the battery case. Getting the batteries out requires me to turn the bike upside-down. Lol. I gotta figure out a better way to do this.
*** If you do plan on getting one of these make sure that it takes D batteries. Some of them have a special battery.***
