Fixed. The image's location is http://farm1.static.flickr.com/171/3...3303cf.jpg?v=0, and it's the stuff after the file extension (?v=0) that was jacking things up. I removed that, and you're good to go.

The top bike is a chopper I built for my son, and below is a musclebikealike that I knocked up from an MTB. We got to ride them together precisely once, then mine was stolen from the backyard. This summer, I'll build again, this time on a chinese road bike base (just because it has high flange gold anodised hubs, and gold anodised rims). I'll make my own triple tree fork with a set of clamps I have, and also my own sissy bar, to get up to a sensible height. It'll be cool.

Just finished my chariot of D.E.T.H. for the Ben Hurt Post Apocalyptic Chariot wars. Now I'm working on an arsenal of weapons.

First picture was taken about a quarter kilometer from my house at the entrance to an old farm which has since been converted to a decorative rock mine.

Second picture was taken about 400 feet away at a playground/soccer field.

i just noticed that the seat is lowered, for some reason... anyways, back to the topic at hand: that's my buddy holding the bike & his lady in the background. this is the best pic of her that i could find at the moment... the pic is ironic/foreshadowing because a few months later the kid holding the keys got a dui in ohio driving randomly to nyc.

I was at that cruise in this last summer and I've got some photos from it. Only took me nine months to post 'em too!



My chopper on the right, my bro's stretch on the left and Sara's Pink Fink in the back ground.


Dunno who this bike belong's to, but it sure is shiny!


Petey's side hack. The bull dog rides in there. His name is Cruiser.


Again, dunno who built it, but it sure is bad arse!

The bulldog actually uses it. He bites the bulb to make it honk.

Thanks. I've always been a fan of the Aztlan Cruiser. I've got some vintage schwinn crate pedals on it, as well. I thought it set it off well even though you can't see them for the pedal covers.

Here is the bike I built for my son. 16" coaster brake rear with a 37x590 front tire/wheel. The cranks are from the same bike as the back wheel, a tiny kids bike. My son absolutely loves riding it. If I can ever get the front tire off (it might be the wrong size... it came on the bike when I got it for free) I'll fix the slow leak it has. Total cost was 96 cents for the can of gold spray paint. Next is a 20" rear wheel and 27x1 1/4 front for my daughter, painted pink. Its gonna be cool. I'll post pix when its done.

edit: Duh. would help if I put the pic in....
