Reminds me of the Pushmi-Pullyu from Dr. Doolittle.
Thanks. I did think of that too!
I just can't decide which way to go, a big part of me still wants to do the Neutron Bomber. I'm stuck in a rut. I don't know if it's a motivation thing or if I'm just too busy trying to catch up with all the other stuff life throws at us.

Still playing with this thing. Could call it "Leg Day" but I'm leaning towards "StretXerciser" still class two... So I swapped the plastic disked wheel for the Deluxe Chrome, bars gotta go, won't need them where I'm thinking of going. Just not sure if it's buildoff material...

This thing reminds me of:

You can build a front wheel dragster bike with this :eek: If you are not doing this I will.



:thumbsup:

Roughed out my disks with a sawzall.
Next will be smoothing out the curves.

Went for a pic with my buddy and may have found another project. I've wanted to do a donkey bike ever since I saw @irzouts build yrs ago, and then @deven_science build more recently.

Half the work is done for me!

...looking for advice on the type of steel tubing I should be looking for...
I think you are gonna need the thinnest wall you can get away with, and count on the shape to provide strength. Then weld carefully. Here's a link to various wall thicknesses of 1 inch steel tubing, the first three listings are.049, .065, .85 and .95 wall respectively.

I still haven't picked up any tubing but I've got an idea of what I need. Thanks for the input. I'll be bending a pair of teardrops and they should be strong. But I was schooled as an electrician and I've bent so much conduit, sure the pipe will bend but that's too weak for me. I can bend conduit with my bare hands, no, and I definitely don't want galvanized. No patina? I need some nice 7/8" mild steel not thinwall. Easy to weld and will match what the original frame was made of. I really wish I could braze it to match the og, but I don't have a brazing rig and was never too good at it 45 yrs ago in High School :crazy:
