Pics of my freakbikes

Well, to start here is my chopper, handbuilt and beaten on by me a few years ago, used for hauling kids around, garbage picking, and any other general freak bike duties i have for it.



my new trailer, i just acquired it today. Going to re-purpose it for my daughter to ride in and be easily be converted for grocery runs, or a bug out trailer if need be.

Yes, I meant "u mad" in a good way. I don't weld so it really limits what I can do. A friend of mine does weld though, and last year he built a rat rod recumbent:



About as "u mad" as I get is recombining bike parts into other bikes, like the drop-bar sport tourer that I turned into a cruiser.

you wouldnt believe it, but its actually a really comfortable ride, ive put alot of miles on it through Chicago, Nashville, Orlando, and quite a few rides on the trails here in Springfield. My best guess is it has around 400 miles on it. Shes due soon for a new set of tires and i need to do some fab work to add hand brakes to her. More pics of tall bike silliness and the rest as i get them going.

Got me a new project! she's a 71 Schwinn Typhoon 26". This is just a mockup of parts using completely useless wheels just to get it upright. Planning on stripping the paint off the chrome fenders, tall ape hangers, banana seat and sissy bar painted wheels and white walls. A very basic coaster brake sled style cruiser.

That's an interesting front rack, is it original to the bike?
