    Thanks, BurnMetal!
    I was wanting to do something a little crazier (think Van Halen's frankenstein guitar) but settled with the fade.
    Also put truck bed liner on the bottom frame's top tube and left chain stay (if that's what it's called) outlined by the yellow lines because those are common steps if you don't just jump on the pedals.

    I've been thinking about whether I need to do that on my tallbike as well. I'm running a chain from the top bottom-bracket to the bottom bottom-bracket, and then back to the rear wheel. So I actually will have two sets of pedals and should be able to use one to hop over the top part of the bike. We'll see if it works. I just put together a contraption (made out of two derailleurs) to maintain tension between the bottom brackets. Again, we'll see if it works

    Good luck with the chain tensioning idea. If you look closely at one of the pictures, you can see we had to bend the right chain stay in order for the chain to go directly from the top bottom bracket to the rear wheel. The hardest part of this build has been to keep the chain on while riding. Haha! One of these days, i'll get a half link and hope that will solve all my problems....
    The bed liner wouldn't hurt, especially if your bike is already black... I didn't prep mine properly before paint and there are random spots on the frame where the bright purple and blue paint are showing through. So I bet that prepping properly before painting will go a long way.

    Well the chain tensioner actually worked! But I didn't have a way of attaching it to the frame itself. It's already painted (and that took about a month and a half...) so I don't want to strip a section, weld it, and then repaint it. It also gave a lot! of resistance when pedaling.

    Good news though, a half link DID work. So I have a chain to both bottom brackets, and then a separate chain to my rear wheel. The rear dropout is horizontal, so everything is in tension and everything rides great. I'll post up pictures after its fully complete. I still need to paint the handlebars and then cable it for the brake.

    You've given that Huffy frame a great classic look. Running the cables inside the frame tubes looks very clean...did the frame already have that feature, or did you add it?

    It already came with it, which is the only reason I saved the frame lol. I hadn't seen it done before and really liked it. Almost all the other parts were salvaged off of other dumpster/garage sale bikes. The new parts are the front fender, mirror, grips, tires/tubes, rear rim and cassette, main ring, and pedals.
    It's surprisingly comfortable with the flipped bars and I've used it several times to go get groceries, love the looks I get from people when I go by :thumbsup:

    That is a sharp looking bike!! You did a great job with it, I really like the Nirve frames. Maybe one of these days...

    Here's my own home built 8-speed chopper using a Sturmey XRD-8 drum rear hub. I found the original bike in the trash, and built the wheels myself. This is the bike I rode for the MS 150 tour last year, and plan on riding it again this year! I can't tell you how many people stopped me to ask about it.

    Just finished her up...

    100_0047..jpg

    All the black and red you see (except seat, tires and chain) are from an old B.F. Goodrich, made by Schwinn (I'm guessing in the '50s). The bars are from a 20" kids bike from the same era. It's a 26" originally, with 24" rubber and fenders currently. I found it in a heap of rusting bikes, and there was more rust than paint...

    Did all the rust-busting, can-paint and rebuild myself. :: pats self on back unnecessarily ::

    Here's my homemade cycle truck. The rack is pretty heavy but its plenty big and carried my 185lb friend around town with no problem. The rack is mounted to the frame so that there's great low speed stability and no wheel flop at all. This thing is a blast, I've just been looking for excuses to haul a lot of stuff since I finished it. Still needs some minor work like a new RD, and a single ring crank for the 1x9 setup.

    That looks strong enough to work in the quarry, carting boulders. Nice build! If you haven't posted this to the Utility Cycles forum here on BF, you probably should, they would appreciate it.

    You've given me another option on how to use my too-large Varsity frame. I have a few 22" and 24" wheels laying around...

    that looks like a 20" tire from a stunt bike. it would have to be with all that extra weight up front.

    Here is the bike i'm working on. it is going to take me a while to finish but will be fun to ride.

    It's definitely a 20" BMX wheel and fork on there. Here's another angle of the rack it self.

    crazywolfie what are you doing there? Are you making your own full squish bike?

    ya. i'm trying to make a full squish bike. it seems that building this bike is a bit harder than i thought it would be. the bike will have way more clearance than i wanted and the only way to bring it down would be to get rid of the triple tree forks and use some shorter front shocks that would not look as good in my opinion.
