Board track bike inspired single speed

Postby hewey » Sat Dec 04, 2010 4:08 pm

I just built this up the other weekend, inspired by 1920s/30s board track motorbikes.

Good job! 8)

Plug the bar ends though, because there is a whole lot of hurt there, if you connect with them. :idea:

Thanks guys. :D

Still working out what I want to do for grips and will plug the bar ends at the same time.

It’s a Kustom Kruiser I bought off ebay, and its one of the early ones which is essentially a Dyno. Basically GT owned Dyno, Scwhinn bought GT and sold off the Dyno brand which then became Kustom Kruiser. These days Kustom Kruisers have been modernised and they look terrible, and word is the quality has dropped significantly too.

Top shelf, good sir. Some white leather grips for everyday use, and this is a real winner.

Went for a cruise around Narrebeen Lakes with my girl the other week, the bike rode really nice. But sunscreen and no grips makes it hard to hang on, so I levelled out the bars for now :lol: :lol: Still working out what to do for grip tape, I liked the idea of white but next to the bike it makes the tyres look really dirty in comparison. Thinking I might just go black grip tape and a matching black seat.

I'm thinking brown leather wrap style for the grips.
