    Missed this thread and decided on a Klunker late in the game...but here is mine a 59 Columbia Middleweight. Most new parts from RRB members including a 7 speed rear coaster, 3 piece crank, stainless chain, 3 inch rise bars and a front drum brake. I am very happy with this bike and it rides like a dream...and slides good too !!!

    My build will be finished this weekend, one way or another. Hoping I can find a suitable tire for the 3 speed wheel but if not it will be a single speed, which is disappointing. Will have to wait until next week for an action photo unless I just do it on the boardwalk at the beach, which is not as dramatic. :roll:

    Even though this has been called a skid, the picture was taken in mid corner, it's more of a trail brake maneuver like this portion of vid from documentary Klunkerz (my $ copy signed by Billy)

    I tried one yesterday, but the location was too flat at the apex and goes to uphill

    How long do we have to get a picture in? Finding a skid spot and someone to take the pic is proving to be a bit of a pain.
