Had a blast as a first timer in the rat rod build off 14. Did a little muscle bike out of curb parts ( probably should have waited for the muscle build off but oh well ). Excited to enter the 2019 muscle bike buildoff. Always have been a fan of Mr Knievel so why not take some from the parts pile and make an Evel tribute bike. Nothing too ground breaking about an Evel bike but hopefully I can put my own twist on it and make a really cool piece. The plan is pretty simple. Parts pile score items ( the story on that later ) will give me an old Bratz schwinnish frame, a set of mongoose pro bmx forks and handlebars, an awesome set of star shaped vintage freewheel mags , and even a large star shaped sprocket! Red white blue and gold color pallette of course ( most forget or go too light on the gold in my opinion , I plan to showcase the gold fairly heavily ) , banana seat, bmx bars , big gnarly motocross back tire , hand brakes , and handmade rear seat supports rather than a sissy bar. All that's left is everything. Hope to get this thing buttoned up fast then off to downtown Lexington KY to jump the fountains at triangle park!
