for my junkyard build i plan on making a bicycle frame from bamboo.


im disputing what kind though
first of all only the frame will be bamboo
it HAS to be a triangular frame


soooooo... what kind do YOU guys want to see
to be blunt im just building this to build it
it will not have a motor so i dont know if it can be entered in this contest officially


but do you guys wanna see a board tracker
a racer
mountain bike
cruiser

in fact im gonna start a poll
winner gets built :)
but fyi i have a lot of cool flat tracker parts lying around




the budget im setting for this bike is 50$
i already have the hemp and epoxy needed to build this thing and MOST of the metal parts budget will go to junk bikes and a new chain

Far as I can tell there are no rules so build your heart out. Of course I have no voice in the rules committee lol (if there were one that is)

I once built a hang glider out of bamboo....scary and fun, it actually lasted longer than the clear plastic sheeting it was covered with. We Used fiberglass tape for the joints, a little harder to keep lit!

You have probably seen this before but I thought that it was a good spot for a picture . The springer design is interesting .... D.J.
