Costa Rica choppers by Tintasangre

Hola Atomic Zombie!

I want to present Tintasangre’s 2012 new bike projects and recycled bicycles public activities, and invite you to check Tintasangre5 YouTube channel handmade bike videos.

This summer has been very hot and sunny and perfect for bicycle outdoor fun:

LA BANDOLERO RECUMBENT CHOPPER BIKE:

This is recycled bicycle, very fast to build. Combined a BMX frame with a MTB frame and Chopper Handlebar and tires (20″ front w-24″ rear w). My first attempt of this front transmission system. Built with garage materials for the test ride, but have to say this system is very stable (especially when compared with long fork choppers). The bike is very easy to ride. Most people of different sizes could drive it. This machine is a cross between a recumbent and a cruiser chopper bike.

ANNUNNAKI CHOPPER BIKE:

This is a 2 week project, the fourth version upgrade of the former Clownbike.

The objective was to create a long, but still very comfortable sporty chopper. I tried to be very careful with the design line, composition, and color. This has become one of the favorites because of the feeling you get while you riding it.

TINTASANGRE OVERKILL CHOPPER BIKE:
   

This Machine is totally inspired in the original ATOMIC ZOMBIE OVERKILL PHAT CHOPPER. A long time ago, I was dreaming to create this bike. This is my first experiment of the oversize car wheel drive system. I didn’t put bicycle spokes on it; just used the normal wheel, hacked the hub and centered with iron bars (this part took some time).

I made a 3 spoked front wheel, comfortable seat and handlebars, and cruiser-chopper angles combination. A very special thanks to Atomic Zombie for their web tips and motivation to go through this project!

It’s very nice to be in contact with you and all bike builders. Best Regards!
