    I'm in for the anything goes muscle bike build off. Anyone else? Jake is thinking 6 weeks which roughly makes it 1st March deadline...

    The bike I'm thinking off building is sort of a cross between "MplsCoaster's" 24inch Eliminator: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=51106&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=60
    and "RailRider's" purple Huffy top fuel rail: viewtopic.php?f=57&t=64955

    Jake is 13 years old, I am 31, if we got someone around 45 and someone 60 or so, we could make it a battle of the generations... :wink:

    You don't have to be 45 or 60 to join either! Any age is fine... The more the better I would think...

    Sorry for being a dumbo on this one!!

    Just found the build off #8 thread and one of the rules says you put all your build pic's up as one thread
    so you do this when you finish in one post? So you don't post pic's as you build, is that correct?

    Sorry if this is a silly question! Thank you,,,,,,,

    Kinda confusing wording there, it means all your build goes into one thread in the Build Off 8 area. So you post pics and progress as you go.
    Check out previous build offs to get more of an idea.

    Each builder creates their own thread in the RRBBO8 Build Forum. You use your thread from Day 1 to document your thoughts, your starting point, and the steps along the way. Look through some of the build threads of past Build Offs and you will see that the build off is just as much about the journey as it is about the before and after photos. It's a blast to be a part of!!!!

    Wooden bike build sounds I'm better with wood than I am with metal. Been doing carpentry all my life just got into metal working

    How much metal? Head tube, seat tube, BB and rear dropouts? I could probably do this too.
    I am a carpenter among other things... Plywood Flyer is mine!

    ERRRRK! (brake skid sound...) What about the fork?

    yeah , i was thinking of wood as what is going to hold everything together (wooden structure) ... yeah using regular tubing and attachements ar a must tho if we don't want the thing to weigh a tone ... (only wood joining the stearing tube / BB /dropouts ) fork i could understand using a regular one for safety if you feel it would not be safe
