I dig the alien design of this bike, how would it ride with the fork turned ¨upside down¨?
I'd bet probably better than it does now. That would make it more like a chopper though, if I understand right. I was shooting to keep the overall silhouette low with the head tube below the height of the tires and the front tire pushed out forward.

The FIRST picture is awesome!
It has that cartoon angles and oblong wheels look to it like a T-shirt pic. Brilliant shot. As always Mr Wilson has done it again, it's got all the bicycle parts but looks like nothing I've ever seen. +1

GC.
Thank you Carl. Do you know, is there a T-shirt/cartoon image that looks like that? When I took the picture it struck me as familiar but I haven't been able to place it.

WOW!
That is really something else

I don't feel the pang of envy often, but this is one of those times....

Great job - that brake handle may be my favorite part
Thanks. Funny you mention the brake handle. Like a lot of pieces to this build it just fell into place. I had to mount it there because that was the longest brake cable I had!

TJ, you've done it again! And, just to satisfy our curiosity, I googled " cartoon - animated - bicycle - lowrider - chopper" and there is nothing like your 'Mule' out there. :bigsmile:

Your scratch builds have always been amazing. This 'scrapyard' build has it's own panache. :41:

Thanks, and thanks for the research too. That view just looks like I’ve seen it somewhere before.
