Default first build

Well I started cutting metal this afternoon. Hoping to be a kind of ratty chopper. My buddy had an old trek mountain bike that I am using for parts. Hoping to get most of it done here tomorrow, as I have a new carburetor coming in early next week.

Well get some pictures up tomorrow of the progress.

Well tubing is cut, and 80% done. Was able to get the rear tire mounted. Just need to attach the backbone, mount seat and install front forks. All I can say is that my welding really sucks..lol


Pile of parts


Build hanging from my garage rafter. My wife's bike is there for comparison.

There's just something about that second pic. I didn't know which way was up, which way was down.

And I was wondering if you'd welded two bicycles together.

When I read your caption, then it started making sense.

But...anyway....nice work. Keep them pics coming.

Lol....the tire is hanging from a hook in the rafter. So the tire is in the rear.

Looking good so far... doesn't look like much ground clearance at the bottom but that shouldn't be an issue on the street.
I'm liking it so far and will follow this one... nice job

Yeah didn't plan on the clearance issue. I have just under 1.5", so I may try and either flatten the tube or cut and would a flat plate.

Aside from the flat tires, and the no brake issues.....which will be easily fixed by putting new parts on.
