Yes I think it's US Central Time, but I've been naughty and started my build thread early.What time zone?
Never actually weighed it, but I did weigh the wheels and frame as I went and pretty sure the total would be around the 150lbs mark.That is a ridiculously cool bike! It's nice to see it in motion. What does it weigh?
We have had some monster storms the last week or so down here, but I doubt they will get to you, they were heading more towards Tassie.This is a great idea, I have four unfinished if I don't count the
Indian I am making a fake engine for! You got me but will be
waiting for a cooler day, she been a roasting out in the Tasman
Sea the last couple of days! Any rain coming from you chaps
Seeing the response so far, it just might! The BO is going crazy! 33 builds up and going in one day!I'm going to suggest/ask we do this type of build off again
down the track. Seems many have incomplete or started but
not finished builds "can we go Dad can we please, I'll be good
You guys make me crazy! With all this great builds going on, my fingers start itching to get to building too.... But there's no time and money left for a build right now.....Seeing the response so far, it just might! The BO is going crazy! 33 builds up and going in one day!
Usually May 1 to August 1...You guys make me crazy! With all this great builds going on, my fingers start itching to get to building too.... But there's no time and money left for a build right now.....
When does BO12 start? I've allready written down my parts list and will soon throw some first bits into the project box...
Looking forward to the build thread Franco!View attachment 41498 View attachment 41499 Think I'll go 'build up' instead of build off this time. Last two I did were a lot of cutting, welding, smoothing..etc, and although tons O' fun...took too much of my time from other things.
BUT, having said that..I am going to rehab an old-er 3 spd, touring bike...Vista..that is a rusted relic that I "started
cleaning up well over a year ago, then discarded, and banished it to the back of Old Shed #2
Hopefully, it will not only restore this grand old bike to most of it's former glory on a dime and a ton of elbow grease and raw fingers, , but perhaps someone will benefit from what I've learned about cleaning up...rehabbing...refurbishing, if you will...it is NOT a restoration...I don't have money for stuff like that. But I research cleaning products as much as I do bike stuff...well, almost.
Still, it will be a lot of work...4 layers of house-paint to remove, a Sturmey Archer 3spd rear that I have no clue if it needs rebuilding or not.Stripping , repainting, bearings? I think these fell out in a rusted fast cage when I cracked upen the bottom a year ago.....had to cut off chain and one tire...you know the drill...
I love seeing an old lawn ornament morph into a usable , ridable, and perhaps even a very lovely bicycle.
Are there any exceptions to the rules?Slight change to the rules to make it a bit clearer:
1: Start a build thread in the new forum that will open up on the day and post your progress there as it happens.
2: Must be human powered. (Can have motor as well.)
3: Build cannot be finished at the time of the first post. (We want to see some progress happen!)
4: Must be in the finished area by the deadline to be eligible for voting.
5: Riding photo or video if rideability is questionable.
6: You must have fun.
