a new slide pic!
"Just wait till I get my brakes!!!!"
And a shirt. :roll:
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 !!!
Finished... with a problem: viewtopic.php?f=75&t=72008&start=225#p730039
Bike is close to being done, I just can't post pics at the moment as my computer stopped reading memory cards :x
Illiterate computers are a real problem.

have some mandatory time off!! so today and tomorrow I finish Wilfrid!!!
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:
couple more slides for your consideration
will try to get some video of my super secret slide spot when I get back in a couple days!!!
This is going to be awesome. I better start making an award.
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.
Here's ours. Hope you like it.
dang that is going to be tough to beat!!!
love the photo sequence and the look at the end....great job!!!!!
Ditto... I guess the rest of us are playing for second place.
