Latest shop dog build "greeniee"
So heers a look at my latest build , i really had a lot of fun with this bike !
Riding along one afternoon my buddy and I came across this great frame resting against a tree with a little sign that said "free" and i was in love...
Its a pasfic coast frame from the 70s sometime? The forks are from the bike graveyard ,the kid who runs the place thinks there from 1903-10 ish.
The neck was rusted thru so they needed about five hours in the shop and were ready to roll again . The tanks are based on a simple ribbon/saddlebag design, with hardeware store caps and napa petcocks . After spot welding they were brazed and lined with casewell tank kream . The ext. Is made from old handle bars and mocked up useing little pipe splicers for welding . The bikes orignial neck was modified to run new beachcomber bars topped off by hand made rope gripps. The seat has a homemade step back and is hand stiched unto old plastic seat tub with green leather .the rear wheel hub is from an old tandem (bikegraveyard) and a strumey archer drum in front . The motor is a grubee gt-5 @ 66cc.
This bike gets alot of double takes and seems to be a fav of the old timers
