thanks for feedback so far guys - i think I came up with a "plan" last night so at least I have direction - - if I finish all my yard work I will try to post more pics this eve. _T.
looking for the right parts - ended up cleaning my shop more than working on my bike last night... will catch up soon _T.
OK, some progress... - been putting on parts, taking off parts, you know how it is... anyways, I think I settled on a few parts... so far - decided not to use the back part of the frame that bolts on - doing something different - Cheers, T.
Made sprocket yesterday - used lawn mower shroud thing to fill the holes...- worked on frame, sanding, etc. will post pics of that later - cheers guys, T.
awesome custom chainring! I too am curious where the rusty saw blade will go. I was thinking that was going to be part of the chainring, but then again you'd likely take your right foot off with that.
Hey, not sure abut the saw blade yet - not for cranks - may or may not use.
Finally got frame sanded down, took forever as usual - anyways, got it primered too - - decided to go for a satin black & red primer look - not sure yet. I took forks apart and sanded & primered those as well. More soon - Oh, the spikes are "electricity spikes" used on top of buildings and stuff - they are aluminum, so will polish up NICE - I cut the tubes next to them out of old electrical conduit - will paint the tubes - more to come!
AND, yes, I am READY! - Happy 4th!
sorry for delayed posting - been slammed with work and stuff - have made small amounts of progress, got soem parts painted satin black, frame will stay primer red/brown - should have rims in form CCR next day or so to clean/paint - the aluminum lighting rods shined up NICE, I had to make some black tubing "spacers/extenders" to attach to spot under seat where the factory x-53 back fender thing was installed - has to extend the tubes back, then install the spikes (held on w/bolts, no welding). — cheers!
