    What's the purpose of the spring?


    Here's one that's on campus. Not mine, but pretty cool for a ghetto rig. Note the reinforcement, that's a clean job
    Weather today: Hot. Humid. Potholes.

    When me and my friend had it working, this mofo was awesome.



    Handcranked, but the chains and gears got so screwed up that it needs a welder to be fixed.

    It looks really good. Nice work on the bars and seatpost.

    How does the bike handle? It is such a rigid looking frame, and not much rake to the forks...but it looks like a good sustained-wheelie machine.

    And does that seatpost remove any of the jarring when you hit a bump or pothole?

    I want to make a custom rear rack that can be adapted to fit all my different bikes. The best idea I can come up with is bending up half-inch metal conduit, like you've done with the larger steel tubing. Any tips for bending?

    Best of luck, and enjoy your new creation.

    Pics of my "alt bikes"

    Heya folks, I'm Johnny Payphone from Rat Patrol Chicago, and though I've built a hundred freakbikes in my day here are the ones that I consider a product of my style:

    Count Chopula was my first rat bike, an evil vampire chopper that chops other bikes in the night. I keep cutting his head tube off to try and kill him but he keeps coming back in stronger forms. Originally he had batwings that flapped while you rode:



    Then he got a softtail, a Snapper seat, and some motorcycle bars from my grandpa's junkyard:



    Then I rode the RPUK's mountain choppers and I wanted something with a little more stability, so I cut his head off and two grew in its place. This revamp eventually became a tallchopper with a train brake:



    Now he's been revamped again as he acquires more onboard electronics. I'll probably make a tallbike attachment and a sidecar attachment eventually, as I'm focusing on modular construction to build the bike for all uses.

    Count Chopula is my commuter and I've easily put a thousand miles on him, including two of the St. Chino's Runs.

    Pickup Styx is just deadly:



    Nevertheless it's fast, nimble, and took on NYC traffic.

    The grillbike has a suspended bed and is fully transformable into any "_____-bike":



    Here it is in drumkit configuration. The drums are attached with seatposts and quick releases, the kick drum has one of those metalhead remote pedals:

    Here's my homebuilt chopper:



    Lots of odds and ends. The front "triangle" is from an old cantilever style bike, and the rear triangle is from a cheapo Giant mountain bike. Measured the frames, drew it to scale in AutoCad, printed a full-size template and built a jig and brazed it together.

    It's got a Sachs 3-speed rear wheel with suicide brake/shift mounted in front of the seat. Long and low and a ton of fun to ride.

I built this ride over the weekend so I could keep it locked up near her place (which is only about a ten-minute ride to work), park my car in her garage, and then tool over to the office. Yesterday was the inaugural ride and I got plenty of funny looks while cruising through downtown Boston in my work clothes. It helps that I'm 6'4", so I look especially absurd on this thing, even though it's pretty comfortable to ride. (As you can perhaps tell, the emphasis in this build was on keeping costs and attractiveness down, since the bike has to be locked outside most of the time. Most of the parts were from the garbage, but I had to buy the copper pipe, er, I mean the seat post at Home Dep-- the LBS, and the wheels, fork, and saddle came from a cheap kids' bike from Target. Total cost: $40.)



    How the heck do you reach the handlebars AND the pedals simultaneously?

    How many spokes does that "summer cruiser" sport?

    Oh, yeah. That bike is hot.

    Here's my rainy day project built with curb found components and frame:

    My last rattyfarthing, Pickup Styx, sent me teeth-first into the pavement one too many times. On a Rat Ride I broke my usual rule of not drinking more than 2 beers while riding it, which keeps the headers down to an average of 6 per ride. If you've ever wondered why noone rides these things anymore, it's because they're deadly (even outlawed in some cities).

    So the brakes went out when I was headed down off the Belmont bridge and I tried to brake with my feet, and with an 18 inch wheelbase you don't have a lot of slop, and of course the handlebars trap you when you go face-down. This time I hurt my wrists so bad I couldn't ride. Neck-rat, ever brave, decided to try it out. I have a lovely memory of sitting in the bar, sucking down whiskey to dull the pain, and seeing him fly into view out the bar window and land on his chest in the street.

    Swearing it off, I built this bike instead:
