    Chain Frame

    Wanted to do something different
    So I decided to build and stretch a frame out of a tow chain.
    Holding up so far, gonna do some more welding on it once I get some more wire and gas
    What do you think so far?

    Heres how it started

    Middle of project

    Finished for now

    I have a video of me riding it just in case any one doubts that it can be ridden lol, I wasnt even sure at first it would work but so far so good.
    Gonna leave th chain raw no paint but some of the other pieces will get painted
    Thanks for looking

    Is there a weak link in this construction technique?

    You ever see the chain frame chopper Indian Larry did?

    Thanks
    Yes Indian Larry was and always will be an ICON. After I did this one I also had someone send me a link that George Barris did one for the TV show The Munsters
    http://bikerodnkustom5.homestead.com...chainbike.html
    It never made the show but cool article
    I may do another but similar to a stretched beach cruiser this time but not sure, have another idea for something that I havent seen before but gonna do some more research before I do it.
    Thanks
