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


Yeah I got onto a supplier of bare rims and he can sell me a 17x9 in chrome or raw steel.Throw a 260-280-300 bike tyre on it to give em a killer look!.But I may have to go up to a 26"front to even the look out a bit?

As soon as Special K's Chopper is done we are doing a ride so I'll keep ya posted bro:hy:

The bloke who built that hubless chopper is the biggest knob swallower on the planet!An absolute clown who thinks he originated the design but many had done it before him,including Billy Lane.But Billy can't do em anymore cos he's in prison for killing a motorcyclist driving home drunk in his pick up truck!:weirdo:

Once it's a roller I can mount the seat,cranks and make the jack shaft and see how it rides.

Nah not really you just have to remember your not riding a MTB around.I tend to weight shift em like a motorbike at speed then use the bars when going around slow corners.

Be easy for man of your talents bro...:D

LMAO I spent 5hrs in hospital dude because I couldn't mono a 12spd racer :( Wiped out the side of my face and couldn't remember anything for the whole day. And that was when I was supposed to be an agile young fella at the tender age of 16, I'd be farked now at 38.
Riding a big wheeler might be out of my league :yelrotflmao:

If you reckon you would struggle at 38, what chance would I have at 48. I am flat out getting out of bed! Did the lawns & cleaned around the house & washed my work ute yesterday & struggled today (Arthritis in ankles). Had it since I was 15!!!!
Question. How do you turn corners with such a large rear wheel & how do you stop it. Do you rely on front brake only or your heels?

It's only a push bike,they only do what you tell it too,Turn left it goes left turn right it goes right.This one will have a disc front brake but at the pace we ride em on pub crawls if you can't stop or fall off your doing something really wrong!

Don't get on em a try to wheelie it cos it is never going to happen,if it had a rear brake it wouldn't skid it anyway cos there would not be enough brake pressure to make it stop unless you use motorbike brakes.That is just unwanted weight anyway and I'll never mount any up on any of my bikes.You would find a front brake only more than enough to stop one of these things.You have to remember it would be lucky to weight 15-20kg all up and thats way less than a motorbike!There not everyones cup of tea I know but treat it like the thing it is and you will never get hurt on it.

But in saying all that it will handle like a push bike with a car tyre on it!:D

Slydog

P.S I'm 37 and still ride as offen as I can,even spending a half hr with the kids riding around our cul-de-sac during the week and doing our weekend ride together and have never being without a bike from my early list memory.

Nothing in concrete yet as usual,um the rear rim just has some rattle tin black on it till it's sorted.When it's ready to go I'll prep it and blow some 2pac black on it.:hy:

Mate, I reckon it is magic. A very specialised machine with some serious engineering. Spent a lot of years riding bikes in the bush jumping over 44 gallon drums and so on with my mates as young blokes even after we got our licenses.
Spent more time fixing buckled wheels & bent frames (before mountain bikes & even BMX).

I reckon you need to go pretty big on the front to even it out - that back wheel if freakin huge!

Wish I lived in wagga, how much fun would it be to do a pub ride on a lazy saturday arvo...:hy:

Yeah it may be getting a 26 yet but they only make a 2.25 tyre for em so I may just stick with the 24"but use a 3"tyre on it.And thats what there best at bro, pub crawls.
