Custom Bicycle Amateur Garage - Lisbon!

Hello everyone, i just would like to show here some of my home-made bicycles,
here they are:




















Some are not finished, most don't have the proper parts...(insufficient funds - )
but the frame and design are there!

Been doing bicycles since 2008, not profissionaly but in the "amateur way".

What do you think?


Cheers

Nice!

UCI would have a fit, though.

cool bikes. You may also want to look at the "Alt bike culture" forum.

I would totally love to tour your last one across the US. A Brooks and some panniers, and it would be ready to rock!

Yť the last one is till now the best one and the one that took me more days to construct.
It is now being painted, when finished I put here some finished photos of her.

I have more, let's see:




This looks great but it was not that great to ride...(with those bars)










This was my best one till the last one from my other post.
She's called Lucifer and you can probably tell why, it's just so violent and "rude".
Never painted, never did I ride it, don't know exactly why, but really, this one I think
is the only bike that I made that is just almost impossible to ride because of the pressure of the direction axis.

But she too will be painted soon.

Cheers!
