Sunshine, I think you and I both know if we can find the right frame to get into the vintage class, from there on it's pretty much sky's the limit since frame mods ARE allowed.To many rules for the winter build-off,so I am out. Prefer less rules for the winter as it makes more fun.
I do have a Girlies Higgins colorflow,that I would like to transform into a boys. My idea was to just sort o restore it....Sunshine, I think you and I both know if we can find the right frame to get into the vintage class, from there on it's pretty much sky's the limit since frame mods ARE allowed.
I limp thru the Autumn here in the midwest, because as cool as muscle bikes are, I'm just not a MB guy. I also get a lot of home remodeling side work as the summer fades... So I always look forward to the WBO. Since I've yet to get all the scratch building gear installed into one garage. It looks like I'm in the Vintage class.
Been thinking of building a scoot also,but motorized....If it is a bicycle based scooter (kick scooter) it will be fine, if it is a motor based scooter then it belongs in the other talk section.
I guess if you cut up a vintage bike into a scooter it could fit in the Vintage area, but if you are building a new rear triangle as well it might be better in Scratch Built.
Reply was thinking the same thing....I'm pretty sure I'll have my hands on an aluminum Silver King frame soon. So I'm in the vintage class with no problem. Of course, there's "UnDeu the Rulebreaker" I've yet to build... how many entries are we allowed in the Winter Build Off?
Cool Frame! Will be a good build to watch!Well my first choice entry for the WBO came today via bike flights from New Mexico. 1936 Silver King, and I got a mock-up 26 x 2.3 tire on a 1.75 rim to fit.
So with a mock-up fork and wheels, and fresh out of the shipping box here is a quick preview.
It's bare bones and as my friend Aaron said, a blank pallette...
Thanks. I have a friend with one and I always thought it was a cool bike. AND you were correct it is a 2.4. I should've remembered I have a pair of them and the other is on the back of Wasteland on a 57mm wide rim that I laced to a 2 speed kicker.Cool Frame! Will be a good build to watch!
That Cyclops is a 2.3? Seems like a 2.4. Definitely a tight fit. I like the look.
I think you're safe with store bought wheels. I don't know if anyone here has the equipment to make their own rims and tires.Well I'm new to this, but gonna give the WBO scratch built class a go. I've read the rules and I'm clear as what I can and can not do/use......just curious about wheels/tires......can we use whatever, as long as they are pedal/chain driven.....
