    We went to New Zealand for vacation this year and came across the Oamaru Cycle Works. Great little shop that was really like a museum. They had just closed, and were about to go for a Penny Farthing ride, but they were kind enough to open up and show us through their collection. I love the old Peterson. It was also cool watching them ride their penny farthings off. Pretty cool place. Hope you enjoy the photos.

    Cool video of a Haley Trike with Sara and Stephen in Philly.
    I love these because the prototype was built in my courtyard in Savannah, GA when Stephen helped us restore our 1873 house.

    These are B&W photographs, which were taken in 1991, but I didn't get around to scanning them until today.



    I want to say that the Motorcycle Windshield, or "Fairing", is a PROTECTIVE SHIELD which makes the bike SAFER. Please don't tell me it "looks" dangerous. It's only dangerous if you're the pedestrian getting run over by it.
    This is called the NFA Vehicles Type 5. The fairing is made of Kevlar.

    That is just a standard cruiser handlebar. They just have the wheel turned around.

    Nice bike. I'm trying to do a paint job similar to this. How did you keep the original look?

    How did you get the Murray to come through so well. I'm working on a restoration project and want similar results.

    This wasn't really a resto project, more like a custom project. Here's how I did the paint. First I Disassembled the bike and cleaned all grease, oil off. Then took a 3M pad (green) and lightly went over everything, to take off any "loose" paint. Then it was cleaned thoroughly again. I use a brake cleaner around the bottom bracket and alcohol on the rest. Next, ALL the graphics I wanted to KEEP, were coated with a few layers of Clear paint (Murray, on tank, design on rear carrier). Then GRAY primer heavily, EVERYTHING. After it drys, BLACK primer heavily, EVERTHING.....Then take 320 sandpaper and wet sand over the graphics you CLEAR painted over, sand through the layers of primer until you reach the CLEAR, just be careful not to sand through the clear........Wet sand the entire bike, until you get the desired effect you're looking for, I wanted some gray popping through the black. Last step was SATIN clear paint over the entire bike..........And this was all done with rattle can paints. Hope this helps you.

    did you re-rake the fork or use a different fork?

    Fork is from a 1944 Sterling. I bent it to give the bike a much lower stance........A little "attitude" never hurt anyone.

    RatRodBikes set this up as kind of a tutorial. http://ratrodbikes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9254 . It takes a fair amount of practice, and I've ruined a "few" forks. I have to tell you I've never been successful in bending a round (tubular) fork. Personally I don't know why I'm successful at it, LOTS have failed and then became a little upset with me and this method. I know I'm not the only one bending like this, with patience, it works. The only thing I can say is try using some forks from tag sale bikes, just for practice. The fork in the thread was a fork from a 27" ROAD bike, as you'll see there is a 24" tire (rim) on the finished project.....In other words, Don't bend a 26" fork and expect to put a 26" tire and wheel back on. Bent forks create negative trail, and take a little getting used to riding....So try it at your own risk. GOOD LUCK!....You can do it.
    P.S.
    Lowering the front MAY cause your pedals to "scrape", you can put shorter crank arms to remedy this. The bike below is absolutely rideable. Here's the build thread for that bike.

    I take the part back about a 26" fork being bent and not putting a 26" tire and rim back on. The black Murray is one. What I meant to say is : As you bend KEEP checking for tire clearance against the crown (top) of the fork. You'll notice the Murray doesn't sit as LOW as the green bike. But, if you look to see how close the tire is to the top of the fork, that's as far as I could bend that one WITHOUT going to a smaller tire size. That was the look I wanted for that bike.
