    I did this build a couple years ago based off a 1936 Colson long wheel base frame.
    Custom large aluminum 80 tooth front sprocket, 8 speed, handmade brake/shifter linkage/fenders/handle bare stem, ect. handle bars are fully adjustable off a old roto tiller and had to have the Moons.
    Its called Bare Bonnie(ville)

    Beautiful bike! That 80 tooth sprocket is a bit intimidating.

  10. It's really cool to 1) see the diversity of interest within our hot-rod/custom hobby and 2) realize that one of your favorite RRB builds was built by a HAMBer!!

    Very cool!
    @hotroddeuce, Does the 8-speed put it in low enough of a gear ratio to start from a standstill or do you need a rolling start?

    I can start from a standstill no problem. I built this for the look (not speed) and also to be easy to ride, while the huge front sprocket (13 inch) is intimidating take a look at the rear cog (gear/sprocket) its a 38 tooth I modified to the rear hub to gear it like a normal bike but it keeps people guessing how I can pedal this thing slow :D its my favorite cruiser.

    Very Awesome bike.....you took it to a totally new level of craftsmanship. I thought BIKES-1.jpg I did good by stretching an old Schwinn out to the new foot forward design......but now you have me thinking about doing another one. Gary
