Bike from the Dead

Finally riding a big boys bike
Ok, here's a few bikes I made up and some of the crap I hung on them. Call them junkers, clunkers, rat rods or customs. You be the judge.View attachment 1306623
The "Cowboy bike" I found an old rocking horse on the curb. I knew the moment I seen it what I was going to do with it.View attachment 1306624View attachment 1306627


A prewar Schwinn motorbike. . . the tank is wood... and the handlebars has "cross brace clockometer" It's a Hudson trunk latch with a pocket watch and two 52 Monark fender rockets. Copper pipe for headers.View attachment 1306626

motorbike with a wood tank. The wire is bell wire from my house. I made the latch and tank straps out of a hunk of copper sheathing. The tank door line I chiseled in. The hinge on the door bottom is a spoke with it's ends set into the wood. The dirt on both of these tanks, to distress them, is 80 year old New Departure grease. . . the worst of the worse.View attachment 1306629
Below is "8" ball, my favorite rider. I found an 8 ball in the trash. It's bolted to the carrier. The rear reflector is an old "blue dot" taillight lens. I think it's off a early 50's Olds.View attachment 1306630

Customs are fun. Every one of my bikes are turds. Started slaming them together in the late 50's. from curbside finds. Picked it up again 20 years ago to keep myself busy.View attachment 1306656

41 Schwinn. Rattle can rustolium paint job on the tank. [For those of you that think that only the pro's can paint a tank] I nailed the tank to the south side of my house and left it to bake in the hot sun the entire summer, to fade the paint to match the original bike's finish.

To build custom bikes you don't need expensive tools. Just imagination.

Skill saw blades; I have some I am going to use for chain ring art, leaving a lot of the teeth on, some I may take every other tooth off, & I have 1 diamond cutting mason blade that I bet will Bling for either the crank or a rear hub. All worn out repurposed. If you want you can take a router with a metal bit & carefully cut designs or even stencil them.

Drilled every other hole larger for now & starting to work on cleaning it more. Debating bolts or spikes through the smaller holes once I polish 1 side & paint the other. Can always change it up with a little bit of effort for either a front hub design or a chain ring guard piece as stated before. Skill Saw blade will be worked on along with this but I am making my dad a double headed hatchet out of 1 hopefully.
