“Penny fake thing” in Puerto Rico

“This is the newest addition to the bike garage. It is a bent frame mountain bike that I cut the head off and welded the forks back into.

Inspired by Atomic Zombie and this thing gets more attention than my chopper build!

Jeremy’s own rendition of a hand made Pennyfarthing.

Thanks for the great website – BUY PLANS people! They are full of great tips and important features of bike building.

Jeremy in Puerto Rico.”

Cool, Jeremy, thanks for sharing and mentioning AtomicZombie.

Cheap snow tires

“Hey guys. Just ran across this cool DIY snow tire idea. Tried it our on our quadricycle this morning (we’re in Gloucester) and it worked great!

Can’t wait till summer to see if they work in sand too!

Here’s the link to the DIY snowtires:

Works super well using the zip ties I got at the dollar store.

Cheers. Nat (aka botwi and amphidory)”

Thanks for sharing, Nat. That’s a great DIY.

Black Lightning recumbent, Illinois

“Hi. I am sending a picture of my son Ray Schwartz on our latest bike, the Black Lightning. It is based on the Meridian, but lower.


He wanted the twin hand shifters so that the handlebars would be clear for the throttle of the next improvement, an electric motor. This has been a great hobby shared by my son, my best friend, and I. We can’t wait to start the next one!

Thanks, Rob Schwartz”

OverKill chopper – archives

We’re working on a new AtomicZombie web site and have been digging through thousands of pictures of our bike projects, some that we completed, others that didn’t get finished for one reason or another. Here are some never before seen pictures of our OverKill chopper, 2005. Enjoy!

The young bikers love OverKill, even though they can’t ride it yet.


Radical Brad uses a tube bender to make the OverKill frame.


Maybe a few more years, buddy!


OverKill is cool!


KoolKat tames the wild beast.


Baby got back!


You can’t ignore an OverKill riding down the street.
