That turned out nice and clean! I like that the bronze of the decals feels like a midpoint between the cream of the gumwalls and grips, and the saddle color. It all ties together really well. How are...

I think most of us start by not trying to put our seats IN certain parts, but rather putting certain parts ON the seats.

1984 Mt. Whitney

This is my favorite bike in my stable. Truly an incredible frame. Mine had some rusted spots as well. I went the cola and foil route, then phosphoric acid to neutralize the areas, followed by a wax...

HA! Thank you!
It was a hazy overcast afternoon, and I found a great parking garage that was part of an old apartment complex that I was biking through. It was a nice deep space so getting it to...

Still have some details and bits to change/refine, but it rides great as is.

Someone in this thread was speculating that your front rack would not be enough for your wine hauling. How did it feel through your haul? Looks like it did just fine!

This is a sweet build!
It's crazy because I'm right in the middle of building the "alternate reality" version of this bike. I'll post a photo when it's done in about a week.

Wanted to ask if those DTH's you're running are the 2.15 or 2.3 size, and what fenders you are pairing with them. Your setup here looks really good, and a great shade of green to boot!

They're made by Innova (57-559) 26x2.125 the pattern designation is IA-2704. They're pretty standard beach cruiser tires. I got mine at a bike swap, and haven't had any luck finding another set...

Bars are really tricky because there are so many elements of personal preference. Here is a breakdown of how I look for bars.
First I look at the width. If I am building a city bike or commuter of...

1984 Mt. Whitney

Thanks guys! Finally got it up to 10, so here it is!
I've kept most of the components stock on this because it came with such great bits! The handlebars are scrambler bars for a small motorcycle....

I think the touch down, pedal forward geometry is great. In my experience, you want to do your own tweaking with seat angle and handle bar angle, but that's true with any bike. I will say that...

Very interesting

Clever idea, and a fun design exercise. However, other than being able to carry another person, I don't see this bike greatly outperforming a standard bike set up with a basket, rear rack and front...

I wanted to ask if anyone here has put together a Rinko bike. Sorry if this is not technically considered a folding bike, but I thought someone here might have an idea.

So many great bikes here! Would post pictures of my 1984 Mt. Whitney but the forum won't let me yet.
