Tall Bikes, Choppers, and god knows what else

Hey all, lurked here every now and then forawhile, but I fianlly got some pics of the Bikes we've built so I figured you guys would want to see

I call this baby the Unitard, Build a unicylce while bored, could not figure out how to ride it, so slowly kept adding things to theoretically make it more ridebale, as is I am the only person who can get it twenty feet forward and I once even pulled off a 90 degree turn!


First one is my tallbike, Other two are seans and Elize's




Sean's Chopper, smoothest thing I've ever ridden


Jurry rigging a break system!


Hope you guys like!

I kinda cheeted beacuse we had a cupup trike laying around that had the pedals through the wheel anyway, but theoretcally you could just weld the axel into place and weld pedals to it.

I welded the wheel into the fork by welding a little bar on each side to make the dropout not drop out, then I cut a sleeve out of part of a bike that's between the seatpost and bottom bracket, welded the sleeve to the form and the seatpost into the sleeve and that was that
