Ok anyone up to a challenge? I want to do a winter build off fat bike style!

5 simple rules:
1. Must be completed by April 1st 2021 - should be plenty of time.
2. Tires... must be 2.5 inches wide or wider for rear tire, front I'll leave to your discretion. As long as it has fat tire in the back you're good - anything goes.
3. Frame- anything goes as long as it's rideable.
4. Must be rideable.
5. May use non bike parts...(motorcycle parts, dragster tires, dirt bike stuff, anything goes so get creative)

Fat rear tire, rideable, use anything you want.

I have been aching to build something like the west coast kids are doing right now. A Clyded out, Warren Wonged, Brain forked, thirteen foot sled I need a car trailer to take to the park honestly since I caught a couple of these rats in Vegas

doing one with 26 x 4.5 inch tires is kind of a big investment though.

I don't know... 99% of the bikes on this forum would fit and probably already have a 2,5" tire in the rear.
Starting at 3" would make more sense, but it is actually still a little thin. I was able to install a 3" tire in my fully's swing arm and will probably swap the air fork for the original old one so I can have the front wheel in 3" as well.
Yes, I know that over 3" wide would require modifications and would limit the participants (I don't have a bike for tires that fat), but statistically 24 x 3.0 is probably the most used size for a rear wheel on RRB.

I decided on 2.5 to give a chance to those who don't have fatter frames, fabrication skills, can't afford fatter tires, or those who want to go muscle bike style (hence why it only applies to the rear tire) but as the saying goes
"mo fatta mo betta".
