    Ok, here is my build thread!
    I know the start time is not for another 13 hours, so I have nothing to show, but I'm starting the thread anyway!

    Following up from Pedro last year will be a challenge, so I decided to go in a different direction and build something completely different, something I have not built before, hence the "Flip the script!" name...
    No car tires this year either! :eek:

    Resurrecting a few ideas I had a few years back but never used too, so it should be an interesting build!
    I will get some parts photos as the start time gets closer.

    Luke.

    Haha no car tire?

    It wil be difficult to build a cooler bike than Pedro but I'm pretty sure you can! I always like your builds and your thread!

    Good luck!

    Ah, ha @KJV has me mostly figured out!

    29089897350_6299b7a266_z.jpg

    No car tires, but there will be Motorcycle tires on custom rims just so Frankie can relax!

    Here are my first parts pics:

    28756098713_920c3d9341_z.jpg 29298714461_526d63f226_z.jpg

    That is all for the drivetrain... :eek:

    I have not planned much beyond the drivetrain because I know it will be the most complicated part of the build, once I have it built then I will just build around it!

    More drivetrain parts:

    I need to fire up my mini lathe to modify some stuff as my first step, so my next post should have some actual progress!

    I was wondering about the tank too, if it was part of the build.

    Yes, it is! :nod:

    Went to work on the mini lathe and turned some of that pile of crank arms into these:

    2 x 29mm diameter and 2 x 32mm diameter.

    Luke.

    Not sure what you mean there?
    Thanks Kel!

    Cut up a hub today to get the threaded area, they have an inside diameter of 29mm, perfect to go together with those other bits like this:

    28776562314_ed214d9416_z.jpg

    They will get welded on once I find some washers the right size to weld on the back.

    Some who have been around a while may recognise this wheel from my lethal swing bike from MBBO#02 that tried to kill me, it is the only part left, the rest has been cut up and reused elsewhere, I didn't want the temptation to ride it to be there:

    29321334541_8b05acd99c_z.jpg
    FILE0290shrink.jpg

    Cut the spokes and hub out of it and also welded up two other rim short sides into another 16x4.5 rim, so now I have two matching rims:

    28776557924_6d8cf7e570_z.jpg

    That was it for the day, spent quite a bit of time working on my little Datsun before I started on the bike, plus welding, grinding and sanding those rims is tiring work! :whew:

    Luke.

    I have to say, my new work bench with the wind blocking walls and the trailer all sorted makes work so much quicker and nicer! It was well worth the time and effort to set that up over the last couple of months!

    Finished off the fire pit too, which was very welcome today, it is only the second day of spring here, and still quite cool!

    This looks wild Luke! Can't wait to see it what's doing with this drivetrain.
