Start your RRB Build Off Journal here!
Progress seems slow on this one. I have put in quite a bit of time though. Cleaned the rear hub and sand blasted the cog, primed and painted the rims, primed and filled the frame. I need to mock it up so I can start building the fork. I have also started the tank but, I am not sure yet what it will be constructed from. I think wood would be the easiest, vacuum form over the wood, or sheet metal. Never worked with sheet metal before.
Actually that tank is the reason I bought the mystery frame that is now in your possession. It didn't really fit the frame so the previous owner cut the bottom out of it
I've got the frame painted and color sanded. I still need to lace the wheels (why can I do a 3x but not a 4x ). I just sandblasted the bobber rear fender and located a seat post to modify. Still working on the tank as well.
Not my first choice for tires but, since I can't find any quick bricks and I don't want to spend $80 on fat franks I guess these will do.
I'm not sure what brand they are. I think they were a buy it now item on ebay. If you do a search for "balloon tire" I think you can find them. They come in red or white.
This is coming along really nice. Where did you find the sprocket? i have a bike/build in mind that I would like to find the same sprocket. I like the seat too, Long spring with original leather , mmmmmm!
