here's a couple of pics from my recent build. took some playing around to find the right front to balance it out, but it has a 20 inch right now and it's perfect! btw, the tall bike on the last page made out of kids bikes is priceless! i might have to try that one soon.

a couple of the latest projects while i'mhere with photobucket up

for a buildoff on ratrod. tried to make a lighter cruiser than my regular stretches. it is lighter, but that's not saying much


a for fun idea i got from someone else. take a little bike and add parts from a bigger bike to it. in this case a 20 mountain bike with 26" suspension pieces. need to decide on a rear shock to finish it.



a much earlier bike i kind of messed up, now i'm playing with it as a bagger project

Thanks. The balance on it is perfect. You actually sit forward of where you would on just the bottom frame alone.

Beautiful!

How does it handle with the negative-raked front fork? (That is, if you dare ride such a work of art).

Thanks,
After some needed changes and modifications, these bikes are very easy to ride and they draw a lot of attention when we take them out.

This is a dot-matrix picture of my velomobile creation. I got a digital camera and a flatbed scanner for Christmas.



here's a shot from the 10 megapixel camera, showing the latest mods, a set of rear panniers.





the panniers are made of "coroplast" - corrugated plastic, from an election campaign ad. The rack is two steel tubes, 1/2" by 3/4" by 28" long. I used large fender washers and some blue loctite to hold it together. the rear markwer lights and turn signals had to be removed to install the panniers, I have the batteries removed too, they are not holding a charge for more than 20 minutes.
Happy New Year! May 2010 bring the most radical, eye-popping bike ever seen!

Subject: Bike Riding...5 miles a day
Don't you think it's time we all became more physically active?

Beginning Jan. 1st,a few friends & I will be riding 5 miles every day.

If any of you would like to join our Bike Club, please let me know
and we can make arrangements.

I think it would be appropriate to ride somewhere between 4:00 and 7:00 pm.

We can call it "happy hour", and pick you up on the way.

Let me know if this works for you.

I have attached a photo of my bike....

Love the Higgins Rat with bannana, sissy and ape hangers.
I have similar plans for my 1979 Schwinn Spitfire 5. I already have a muscle bike 5 speed stick shift and Kenda Flame tires ready for it. As you can see there is no chrome left on the rims, but they are still very sound. I plan to paint them primer red.
