Added Copper Inserts to the "Tank". Hopefully, the front tire will arrive today.
Will post a pic of the final mock up once the front wheel is mounted. Thinking I am at the 65 - 70 percent mark of completion of the build.
Any updates? I've been missing this bike.
Kota, prior to my back injury, I had to ditch the 3G Copper rims; wouldn't clear the front fender, too wide. So found two black 1.50 rims in my stash and will jazz them up with some off the shelf wheel disc. Pics will follow.
Hope to be returning to action later this week to finish the build by deadline.
Hope you're back on your feet and your bike is back on two wheels soon.
Tick Tock - 14 days left
KF, Tick Tock indeed. Fear is a great motivator, lol!
Final mockup. Still to do: Chain, Fender stays & braces, adjust handlebar upward slightly upward and finish fender bling.
Devil is in the details! Having trouble making the proper fender stays/braces. I know a nonconventional design is the answer.
Finish bling on Fenders. Started Fender Stays & Brace work around.
You've really outdone yourself with the "DreamJunk" bike has a magical look to it and so many interesting details.
Dood!! those fenders are awesome!! Steam that thing up! I love it!
BLING A DING DING!!!!
Dang, sometimes what should be easy, is not. It took several attempts to get the right fender stays/braces. As suspected, simple was best.
Had to reposition the fender mount to the rear bicycle rims fender to accommodate the stays & braces. Nothing like a unanticipated kink at this juncture, ha,ha.
Amorem Redux is Integrum (Finished)! Monday morning taking her for the photo shoot.
I wish that my photography skills would do her justice.
Congratulations to all who had the brass to compete, create and cajole us. Wasn't sure if I would get this far. I believe if I was given a fourth month to build; I would still be down to the wire.
Cheers fellow RRBers.
This is one of those bikes that you really need to just sit and stare at to see all the cool little details!
Cool bike man. Looks like it should have water pumping through it!
