Phil’s Highroller build thread!

“So I took the plunge yesterday and started my Highroller. I’m doing things a little different than the plans, but I think it will turn out ok. If not, I’ll make it ok!

I am using the seat stays and chainstays from my donor bike. I’m currently working on boxing in the chainstays where they meet the bottom bracket. I’m hoping that it will be strong enough once I am done. I’ll be posting pictures of what I’ve done so far.”

Mini bike chopper from Russia “Hello. My name is Aleksadr. I am from Moscow, Russia. I send you a photo for your gallery of builders. It’s a mini chopper I made for my son for school. I will be very glad if you put our mini chopper in your gallery. Viewing your photos has inspired me on construction of it.”

Junk bikes get new life – AtomicZombie builders gallery

“I picked a pair of old Schwinn OCC StingRay bikes from a the country, they were both in extremely bad condition. The chains were rusted solid and had to be cut off with a side grinder.

Everything on the bikes had to be sanded or wire brushed. The original frame configuration was a 20″ wheel on the rear and a 24″ wheel on the front. I extended and lowered the rear drop outs, the front forks, and the kickstand in order to accommodate 26″ wheels on the front and the back. I also had to recess the inside of the front forks to allow enough room for the 36v geared front wheel motor that I added. I moved the foot peg from the front forks to a rear location.

I built and welded on the front wheel disc brake mounting bracket and the rear rack. I mounted the 36v lithium battery to the front of the down tube. I also cut and leaned the seat post back a few inches and gave the bike the blacked out treatment.

Hope you guys like it, Michael Welch”

New Zombie from SW Missouri (Springfield)

“Hi, guys and gals. My name is Amos and I’m a Zom… newbie with about 30 sec. of stick welding experience (which was 5 or more years ago) who’s chomping at the proverbial bit to make himself a custom bike. (BTW, are all members of the forum considered Zombies, or just those who’ve completed a bike?)”
