mtb tall bike

hi all, this is my new MTB tall bike, "humm,err?"
same design as another one i`d seen on web, and simplest build yet!
just had to weld forks, and extend springs with a short piece of tube to drop
swing arm, so drive-train geometry stay the same.
this one i ride thru town!

Two chains, actually, that might be short enough for one length.

I built this as an entry for RatRodBikes.com 's Space Bike Build-Off. It was actually assembled in less than 12 hours, including a last minute run to home de pot for some supplies.
That is just, plain beautiful Joey.

Nice bike on the left

Hey captain, That beautiful vanilla colored bike on the left is a real piece of art. I've never seen anything like that. Does anyone have an idea what it is? any information will be greatly appreciated, thanks

Looks like a Bassman...........Pricey in America, if you can find one. NICE bike! For those with less money (like me), Micargi makes a similar (cheaper) bike. http://www.micargibicycles.com/produ...tail.asp?id=19

I have been investigating, thanks for the lead. Here' what i found so far; it is made by a company called Project 346 and the model seems to be the "Basman". I found a great website for anything cruiser in germany its http://www.thechopperdome.nl/chopper...fietsen-winkel. Or you can visit www.project346.com/, I am really liking the style and yes micargi makes a similar one called the royal http://www.ocbeachbike.com/micargi-b...iser-miro.html. Aside all this great info i noticed that one of the common changes the owners do include taking off fenders and installing bigger tires. What kind of tires are those? I will be looking more into these types of bikes. thanks for the leads guys.
heres a video that show some in action. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BcMJ...layer_embedded

Kenda...FAT FRANKS......Felt, are a few companies that make WIDE tires. A 3 inch wide tire should fit on a cruiser rim (24x2.125) with no problem. Anything wider then 3 inches will "probably" need a wider rim. If you like that style of bike, try here http://forum.slownlow.com/

Built frame from scratch. Front is a unicycle. Bars and brakes from old mountain bike. Seat from cheap go cart. Rear wheels and tyres from racing go kart.

(I know it's a 'tri-cycle' but still pretty cool I think)
