i saw a guy riding one on saturday night, thought it was cool, liberated two really old bikes on sunday, and built it yesterday, then we were riding it last night.
I guess when i decide i want to do something i get it done likedy-split.
The bikes were really old and busted down road bikes i found in an old neighbor of mines shed, she let me have them for the cause. they were totally unridable and the bearings didnt even turn, but beggars cant be choosers EH? i found a year on one-it said 1984 i think they hadnt been ridden scince 85'. I hacked em up and got the bearings i wanted moving then slopped some weld on em, and twas done!! I got new tubes and tires and chain(s) for it and we were off. it works pretty good, but one night of 250 pound guys bunny hopping and curb hopping on it did a number on those old 27" wheels. Also im having problems with my ghetto one-speed conversion(custom chain length, sans deraillers) the chain hops around on the rear cassette, and now its settled on one geear but the chain is on there wicked tight. i think ill leave the rear derailer on my next one. tell me what you think.
