1/8 chain

was 65-12, then 26-12, now 36-16

This is my current project. Most parts are undecided right now. But I have lots of old used parts around that may find their home here. So far the cost minimal. and I am trying to keep it that way. I don't see my self on it all the time just when I want to go warp speed or something like that. I wanted to build a bigger one but this was what I found. I will keep pics updated when I can.
I have just finished etching roman numarals into the chainring next to come is the minute hand at II. 1-17-07

I have had a recent knee injury (and no it is not from riding this as a meatgrinder), so I reconverted this to be a strainless ride that I can even pedal uphill with one leg if I needed to. Now 26 to 12 and I am surprizingly really happy with it llike this. 4-11-07

This year this bike has the weakly purpose of being a Sunday Slow Ride Cruiser. I enjoy it the most this way, and sometimes better than any of my other bikes! 5-14-08

I always wondered if it's

I always wondered if it's possible to get a speeding ticket on a bicycle. I guess if this bike doesn't I dunno what will.

Where did you find a 65 tooth chainring???

Well the plan is to go so

Well the plan is to go so fast that I will acually go back in time to where there are no laws!
It was a barn find believe it or not!

Nice Exercycle chainwheel.......

Yeah, you knew I'd catch that.

How Fast do you guess?

I am having a poll to guess the top speed on flat ground. Price Is Right rules of coarse.
