I reckon leather only brother no padding at all...It's got a spring but it is comfy as the way it is.

Damn that chain is long, wouldn't want to cop a whip in the leg with that if it came off in a hurry.
Lucky you made New Big Wheel a double chain hey :)


haha Glenn, thats nothing. you should see the "bikes" i race. the chains on them are in excess of 3 meters, cos they still have to go through a normal bike derailleur, usually 2 chain tensioners, and round a chain ring thats anything from 65 teeth up to 90 teeth :D

sorry for the temporary thread hi jack Slydog...

this is what i race, take a look at the length of the chain on that thing :P
this isnt in race form either, they normally have big fibreglass, kevlar, carbon fibre or even coreflute shells around them. very very fast :)

Ive raced one of them before at a fair that came to school once and it was the first time i had sat in one. I smashed the rest of them cos i used to race touring bikes back then too so i had muscle endurance on my side, but they were great fun drifting in the grass around the circuit. Ive always wanted to buy one to ride to work and back, reckon they would be fun as you can get around pretty quick surprisingly with such a small driven wheel.

Way too wasted to even think about anything now but more Jimmy cans...Bung. Ha ha ha Anyway I got some more sheet metal for the inlay and the rear guard so if I feel up to it I'll knock it over tomorrow arvo so I can brake it down and send it off for sand blasting on Friday.

I reckon you could get away with putting some bigger padding on this one Rob. It would fill up the V where the seat is nicely.

It's push bike bro,not a motor bike. If It was a motor bike it would not have pedals or cranks.
