Hey guys,been waiting on parts to arrive for my new chopper so I got started on a new big wheel sled to pass some time.It will roll with a 265x50 on a 14x10 rim.I looked thru all the bogan suburbs today for spare parts and ended up finding em in the scrap metal joint around the corner...Dooooh:aaaahh:

So i got the basics of the wheel done and will drill and lace it tomoz then get going on the rest of the frame.Until then...

Imagine truing a wheel up if ya bent it...Yikes:( Worse yet imagine lacing the thing up from scratch...That would make me very dangerous to be around for a while I reckon:cop:

Some say we are extreme and obsessed but we know the truth, and the truth is, they are mediocre and lack passion.

Sorry Wes I'm just too lazy and it's only getting 28 spokes.The rim was to be drilled for 144 spokes but that would mean custom spokes at $2 a pop or $288 in spokes alone!!! My brother in law started on it but only got half way done so I filled all the holes and cleaned the rim up to start over again.

No dirty old TA deserves that much money to be spent on it anyway...LOL But a 17x280 or 17x300 Michelin Pilot bike tyre would.

OK got a bit done today.The basic frame is done,it's a short sled style bike that comes in at 2500mm long.Pretty short for one of my bikes but I wanted to try to make the bike look as fat a possible.I went with double down tubes on this one and will add a sheet metal inlay when it's rollin.It will have 75mm ground clearance also.

I'm using a old set of home made bars with about 300mm of rise and only 100mm pullback.I tried 6 different sets of bars including some Ducati bars I have here but nothing worked like the old ones???

I still have to lace the rim,again I got it fully laced one over but I don't like the look so I'll open it out to 2 over and hope that works.

Anyway heres some shots...

rob that looks fat i reeeeally like it.

after riding your other bike last week and not falling off (which i was a great effort i thought considering the state i was in by the end lol) im really keen to go on a pub ride.

funny you talk about the michelin bike tire for one. i was in griffith last week and was bored after work, so we went to some of the bike shops around there. wide rear bike tyres look awesome=p
Drag racers go straight to the finish the rest of those guys just drive around in circles looking for it.
