Hmmm. . . never been in this part of the brain before.
Can't wait to see how it turns out!............What part of MA are you from?
welcome back fsjaak!!! Loved your last build off bike!!! Cant wait to see (and read about :mrgreen: ) this one!!!
note to all, keep an eye on this one
yeah markms right hes got a great eye and a great mind too!
there was a guy at the indy bike show that had some of these. The two in the back look just like it.
Every solar system that the Salvage Ships* visited presented difficulties unique to its place in time. Some regions were more hazardous than others. The areas known as France, Mercury, and Venus were particularly troublesome and responsible for many missions failures. The primary cause of all mishaps and lost ships can be directly linked to the inability of the meat motors to control their appetites. The Pilots generally tried to avoid most of these difficulties by keeping stores of consumable treats favored by the motors aboard the ships. There were however, much greater catastrophic consequences to be encountered by devious entities who offered pleasures which could not be indulged aboard ship. These entities knew the precise weaknesses of the meat motors and would go to great lengths to attract them to their destruction. Being painfully aware of these pitfalls, the Pilots contrived practices to neutralize, or at least reduce these incidents. . .
Since the Pilots acted as individual agents for "The Source" and their individual ranking was determined by the number of successfully completed missions, and since success relied heavily on keeping the Meat motors focused and undistracted by the evil entities, the pilots pooled their collective experience to contrive and implement a defensive plan.
Here we go!!!! Man, I like your style!!!
As all of the Meat-motors could not, and many would not, be sent on missions. The pilots believed that some of them could be re-purposed to assist in assuring a better success rate for the missions.
There was a small group of these subjects who didn't seem to have any particular use to either the tribes from which they came, or "The Source".
The Pilots observed over time that the Evil Entities found these subjects especially attractive and would go to any lengths to see them. The Subjects were particularly skilled at generating mating calls and other peculiar sounds which would attract nearly all of the Entities whenever and wherever they appeared.
Once the pilots had received their flight plans, they would arrange, for small enticements of goods and materials that the Subjects seemed to enjoy, a series of appearances by the subjects which were promoted as "Tours".
These "Tours" would be timed so as to occur in each section that the SS396 vessels were scheduled to meet with local distributors (ZB140 Tridents).
Do ya' think she does free weights or solo-flex?
That's a man baby! :lol: :? :lol: :? :lol: :? :lol: :? :lol: :? :lol: :? :shock:
Hate to lower the tone of this thread but just to provide a bit of background, the bike is a 1960s Moulton designed, manufactured and distributed by Sir Alex Moulton who rose to fame as the inventor of the suspension for the (original, Austin) Mini car. His work with Alex Issigonis on the problems of suspending small wheels led him to redesign the bicycle from first principles. The bike (now known as the 'F frame' due to its shape) was a commercial success and seemed to tap into the fashion of the time, sixties London, the beatles etc, as did the Mini. Alex Moulton went on to sell the rights to Raleigh who, in their usual cost cutting way, ruined the design by eliminating the suspension and enlarging the tyre size to compensate for the poor ride. This was the Raleigh RSW (Raleigh Small Wheeler) seen in the foreground gtcoma's picture. Moulton went on to develop the AM series and to licence the design to Pashley, Englands oldest remaining cycle manufacturer. Moulon continues to manufacture the high end AM models in his own factory in Bradford upon Avon, Wiltshire. One of his bikes still holds the IHPVA world record for an upright bike over 200m.
YIKES! Something tells me this bike's gonna be interesting.
...take a look at Crankenstein from RRBBO2.. INCREDIBLE!!!!!
Went to the archives, I remember that bike. Highly imaginative, 2 wheeled artwork for sure.
The "Tours" would enthrall the Entities long enough to allow the transfer of cargo from the ZB140s to the larger SS396 (Crankenstein) equipment.
Hopping up the generator? to provide more Power . Very interesting read as always with some mad skillz to go along.
