Hey gang, I noticed a few bikes in the backrounds of some pics...

Ive been building bikes out of spare parts for ever, just seeing who else might be into it.
-----

heres my last fix/ss

Norco frame 10$
parts from a Raleigh road bike whos frame was too tall for me, 15$
misc new parts, tires/tubes/etc, ~45$

then wrecked it :p

Im building a bmx now. no pic yet but
GT fork/neck/headset
mongoose bar
some random frame I found, literally
havent decided on BB/crank/wheels yet, still shopping for closeouts, or deciding if what I found in the frame is salvageable, prob is.

and building a cruiser, going to make it a alley cat bike :)
its all huffy now but needs a new headset/bars and crank

I want a fixie :( I want to build a frame from scratch too but i'd need to know how to weld (and own a welder) for that one :( :(

Anyway, I just own a black/black Haro Mirra 540 Air right now, and sorta have possession of an older (70s or 80s) red Nishiki, I'd covert to to a fixed gear but it's really my dads so I can't mess with it

I sold a pretty cool Robinson last summer
Dad has some $5k Seven that's fun to ride around
THIS was my sweetest bike, rode it even when I'm double the weight limit (80 lbs ha). Kind of like a BMX Miata
Looking for an expert cruiser or something when I have a buck or two to spare

This is an awesome thread! I used to be into road bikes when I was a kid... Had a Bianche that was set up with tons of nice parts. My dad was really into it and had a basement full of parts, mostly Italian race goodies that he spent a lot of time and money on acquiring. I haven't got one right now, but I think it's going to be my next investment after I find a new job.

I love building stuff out of spare parts. My cruiser is going to kick ass, like a king sized bmx.

Im super glad there are people here into bikes, I was half afraid no one would like bikes the way I do!

Oh damn! Cool thread!

I used to race BMX WAAAAAAY back in '82.

I had a Schwinn Predator and the whole checkered pad set and 3 piece crank, etc.

I remember how cool it was back in the day when all these cool bikes were coming out like HARO, GT, Mongoose, Diamond Back, Redline, Hutch, Kuwahara, etc.

Then I went and saw E.T. and the kids were riding all these cool bikes.

This was before freestyle was really mainstream, so the most "tricks" I ever did were bunny hops, endoes, and tabletops, et al. Hell, there wasn't such a thing as axle pegs yet!

Thanks for the flashback to my childhood.

Man, I need to go and dig out all my old issues of BMX Action!! LOL!
