Subject: 16" Low rider wheels
Entered on: Jul 20, 1997 00:05

Message:
I have a real unique set of 16' low rider wheels. The center is a cast aluminum 5 spoke (like a old crager car mag) attached to a std. chrome 16x1.75 bicycle rim, less spoke holes. What is really cool is that LOW RIDER and 16 are cast into one of the spokes in big letters. Does anyone know the history of these wheels. I have never seen another set like them.

Why are some lowriders lower than others? How would I go about making my lowrider lower? I already have a bent fork

Message:
To get it lower, you could arch the fork even more, but you'll need to re-drill new holes for the truss rods. Also you can change the angle of the head tube, but that takes a lot of hacking.

Message:
The Dyno Roadster (made by GT) is a very fun bike to ride. You have to have very long legs if you want to stay in the seat. I think it retails for around $400. I've seen them in red and black. Seems like there is a blue one in a Pringle's commercial. Coolest cat on the sidewalk!Bob Huffordbhufford@mail.orion.orgDeluxe64@aol.com

I've got a Rollfast boys stingray lookalike that i have restored, everything on it is original except for the sissie bar, fenders, tires, chanigard(missing) and rear wheel. The lime green paint and green sparkle seat on this bike are great, but the sprocket and handlebars have some scratches. I am unsure of the year, but it is from the 60's or 70's and i would also like to know if there is any information that i can get on Rollfast. I also have another Rollfast boys bike, but it hasn't been restored yet. It is purple, needs a rear wheel, handlebars, sissie bar tires, chain, fenders and the seat and grips are not original. I would also like to know if a standard bent springer fork will fit these. Please if you could help me I would be extremely greatful.

Message:
Bondoing isn't that difficult. It just takes practice. Go to your local Walmart or autoparts store and buy an automotive fibreglass repair kit and an automotive body putty (bondo) kit. Total price will be $20 at most. Then read the directions and you're off! (be sure to start with a junk frame or two, 'cause you may mess it up shilw you learn)

Entered on: Sep 1, 1997 06:06
Entered by: Martin

Message:
Rear hub brakes are very common and the only kind of brakes found on vintage bikes made locally here in Scandinavia. They are reliable and work well with a minimum of maintenance. However, they should be dismantled and greased every five years or so, otherwise they may run dry and cause embarrasment by squeaking. The maintenace is quite easy. Start by removing the wheel and unscrew the nuts on the axle. Pick out the interior parts from the hub shell. Use suitable solvent to wipe off the surfaces of the brake and the inside of the hub. Grease both using a good quality ball bearing grease. Put the parts together as they were. Just take care to not tighten the bearings too much. The wheel must run freely and without rumble. Otherwise bearings may wear out rapidly. After this procedure you will have smooth running brakes for years to come. Happy riding!

Well, first you need a frame - preferably a cantilever frame (smooth arches, like a Sting-Ray, but you don;t have to pay a Sting-Ray price - many other companies made that style frame). Check yard sales, flea markets and the dump to find one of these frames.

G'day, I'm a lowrider enthusiast from Western Australia. Lowriding here is pretty small time but still greatfun!Recently I bought a complete bike off a kid. It was really cool purple,purple glitter seat,fat whitewalls and stuff. The frame was not very rusty.But the factory stickers were still just intact, and you could make out the PORCHE type and the porche sticker on the front+ there was a "space ranger"sticker on the seat pole. Is this bike a Porche or not?Is it worth giving it a new life?

Message:
You can buy arched 'springer' forks from menotomy. Or if you want long long straight forks you will have to custom make them. With the springer forks you don't have to make any changes to the bike's frame. With long custom forks you will need to change the angle of the head tube, or the bike will always be pointing skyward.

Message:
Does anyone still use the "cut off the forks from donor bikes and weld or bolt them together" method for making long forks? It is wicked dangerous riding, but the arch of the forks "adds up" so you don't need to mess with the head-tube angle.

Mark,I f you have a dayton style wheel set then sqeeking seams to be very common. I have owned a set for two years they squeeked since the day I bought them and they still do I had them re-greased about a year ago at a bike shop they still squeeked. So after awhile I grew fond of the honking brake, it draws attention and signals those pesky mountain bikers to get out of the way. I just got my new 140spokes today they honk(squeek) as well.

Please fill me in on the bondo process. Thanks, Gary

Yeah, that is a common problem. I dunno how many different head tube lengths the old frames have, but sometimes you just have to get out the hacksaw and make a good straight cut on the threaded tube. Then carefully clean up the threads by slowly (AND BY HAND!) screwing on and backing off the cap nut.

Travis - when your bike shows up in the magazine (Lowirder Bicycle, I assume), post something here. Carl, a lowrider isn't really for practical riding. It is made really really low, made for looks, not real riding. A muscle bike is a bike with a banana seat, monkey handlebars and an arched frame - like an old Sting-Ray.

My bike is a 76 Shwin with a mild custom frame, 9 pearls paint, and the parts are twisted. --This site is bad, I got it in my favorites now. Anybody know of any other cool lowrider bike sites. Peace.

They are not made for racing or long rides. Only local cruising. The show bikes are not really made to be ridden at all, though the rules say you must be able to pedal a figure 8.

I was wondering if anyone knows how I would fill a tank and the back seat stays of my lowrider. I am going to use sheet metal and bondo but does anyone have any other Ideas ?

Entered by: JimW. (wilsnetc@ix.netcom.com)

Message:
Cody, Sheet metal and Bondo are the traditional ways of making tanks and filling in the stay area. There is another method which has some advantages. Spandex fabric saturated with epoxy resin works very well in jobs like this, and doesn't require the expensive tools and high skills of sheet metal/Bondo. I would recommend that you get a piece of spandex from a fabric store, and experiment with stretching it over areas of the bike frame. This will give you an idea of the possibilities. Securing it in the stretched configuration can be done with duct tape, clothes pins or safety pins. Brushing epoxy into it is easily done with a foam brush. After the epoxy resin cures, you have a rigid, lightweight membrane. I add one or two more coats of resin to fill in the fabric texture. When the filler coats are cured, it may be sanded glass-smooth and painted in the usual way. For a tank form, shapes may be added under the spandex. These shapes can be made of foam, or even cardboard. Try it, it's fun.

Message:
From the same period as railroad bikes are bicycle boats. An article on constructing them may be found in the Popular Mechanics Do-It-Yourself Encyclopedia edition of 1955. Basically, a bicycle frame is mounted atop a pair of pontoons. Propulsion in this particular design was by means of a pedal-driven ring and pinion gear driving a propellor through a shaft. The handlebars actuate a rudder via cables. The pontoon design was similar to traditional kayak construction. Modern builders would probably opt for carved foam covered in fiberglass. A nicely built, tricked-out and painted craft would probably slay bike-show goers; and establish a whole new show category. Anchors aweigh, muchachos!

Bruce, The first issue of BikeRod&Kustom has an article to do with trikes, including the new lovelylowrider trike kit. http://www.geocities.com/~bikerodnkustom The kit has a track width of 22", but they will do a custom-width axle for a higher price. It uses a double- sprocketed rear hub between the chainstays, to transfer power to the rear axle. I think it should be possible to use a multi-speed rear hub like the Sturmey-Archer, in place of the single-speed unit which comes with the kit. The first issue also has instructions for making a streamlined shift-pulley mount; needed with the Sturmey rear.

Yes there is such a thing. It is a bike which has been modified to run on (hold onto your sissy bar)rails! A.K.A. train tracks. The tires are removed and the rims are modified to fit on the tracks. You also need an outrigger to run on the opposite rail so you don't fall over and chomp gravel. You also need an up to date train schedule so you don't die a horrible death.

HAY, my name is tom, a while back i started to work on a low rider. i started by making 3' (yes three foot) aluminum forks! did the welding my self. the problem was that it turnd the frame into a chopper. So i cut the head tube so that it put the fors at a stepper angle, givving it the low rider look. Next i started to work on a seat, teperarily i used a old banana bourd(thin skate bourd) and fastend it to the frame with tent poles! i fineshed the seat and a new set of poles. soner or later i'm going to get around to kicking out the back. i'm ging to restile the top fram tub so i can build a slurppy holder, hard to explan what it looks like, i saw it in a BMX pluse mag. right now it is silver that blends to black as the frame gose along. Well, I'll notify when i get it done, there will be a picture of it on my site pretty soon: http://members.spree.com/bugholio/ keep lower'n but watch the bumps, Tom Steele!

Mike, Some of the koolest lowriders I've seen have been based on step-through frames. I'm building a kustom based on a 24" girl's frame. Boy's frames are so common, and so much alike, that the wild variety of girl's frame configurations make the finished bike really stand out. Build it, you'll be glad you did.

I'm not personally interested, bil, but it seems like a pretty good deal to me. If someone's thinking about building up a ride with pretty much that complement of parts, and you like the color scheme; you'd be smart to go for it. Bil obviously did some smart shopping, especially the tools. The last chain-tool I bought cost $18.00. The last time someone UPS'd me a bike, it cost about $25. Bil's forgetting to add in what it cost to have the parts shipped to him. It adds up, especially if you're in a hurry to get the parts. (I'm always in a hurry for the parts.)

I have a question for anyone who can answer it. In this season's issue of Lowrider bicycle magazine, I saw an article on how to take out the crank cups in an old Schwinn frame. I have a frame now, and it needs to be sandblasted and re-painted before I can start building up the lowrider. I was wondering if it is neccesary to remove the crank cups if they are in relatively good condition, and becuase I'm on a budget, would it be worth it to buy new crank cups, and take out the OG ones in the frame already. Thanks so the info in advance. -Sam Orleans

Message:
In reverse order: If the chrome has light surface rust, scrubbing it with crumpled aluminum foil will probably take care of it. The aluminum foil is good because it is softer than chrome, but harder than rust. Deeper rust may require steel wool. Be careful,though; chrome plating is hard, but very thin. It's pretty easy to go through it. Filling Frame Spaces: Bondo is commonly used for this job because it is easy to find, and body shop workers have used it for years. It is heavy, however, an important factor for human-power vehicles. It also requires a fairly high degree of skill. Practice, practice, practice, in other words. I much prefer to use spandex fabric and epoxy. The spandex is stretched over the frame and whatever is used to make the fabric bulge out. plastic or rubber balls, foam rubber, plastic cups, cut cardboard, styrofoam: anything can be used to produce the shape. After covering the frame and bulge-producing "armature" with plastic kitchen wrap or a drycleaner's bag, the spandex is saturated with epoxy. Epoxy does not stick to plastic films of those types, which allows popping off the spandex form after the epoxy is cured. Each side is done separately, trimmed and finished as individual units. After trimming, each form is given a final coat of epoxy. After curing this coat, which fills in the fabric texture, it is sanded to smooth the surface, then primed and painted in the usual way. You can do amazing things with this stuff, and it is incredibly lightweight. Issue #2 of BikeRod&Kustom (http://www.geocities.com/~bikerodnkustom) has part#1 of my series on the process. Part#2 will cover the part which shows the answer to your question. Unfortunately, it will not be in Issue#3, which goes up soon. I'm waiting for a stretched frame to arrive. When it gets here, I'll photograph the process. The best way to learn about it is to actually play with the stuff. A pair of stretchy spandex tights from Mom or Sis is all you need to experiment on a bike frame. Some of those little butterfly clips from ace bandages or safety pins are useful. Stretch and secure the spandex to the frame, then push various cups, balls, etc against the inside area of the spandex, to see how it looks. You'll catch on fast.

Well, the bibber the bike the longer the wheele bass. I'm currently working on a 26" ow-rider. However, getting the pedals in front more, does present a problem. You see you have to get a fitter to cut, measure, and move the drivetrain tube forward, and then get a welder to put it back together in a good looking way. You might even need an engineer, a mechanic, and a disighner. No stock disighn has been incorperated into the long wheele base theme, as of yet. Most low-riders are built out of some-ones garage.

Message:
Sam, Most chains come in a sort-of-standard length. The chrome chain you can order from lowrider sources is usually the right size for a 20" frame. If you end up with too much, you can always take some links out. It's easier with a chain tool, but you can use a hammer and punch to do the job. Concerning the spandex series in BikeRod&Kustom: the next installment in the series is to do with covering a bike frame in the material. It's waiting for a stretch frame to come from ReeCycles. They recently had to move, so it wasn't possible to send it in time for issue#3. Presumably, it'll be in issue#4.

Rashod, The only thing I can recommend for polishing anodized parts is the sort of non-abrasive car polish used on clearcoat finishes. The anodized surface is a form of aluminum oxide, which is electrolyzed on the surface. It's fairly tough, but very thin. You can easily polish it off, with normal metal-polishing procedures. I'd say to just wax it.

A lot of your low-rider bikes at shows are three wheelers because they cost more, can carry more, (includding your chick) and can haul more. So Co,s are R.B.R., Lovley Low Rider. Do a search, or use someone elses serch engine. You can also buy a used ice-cream rig, kind of the reverse of what your looking for with two wheeles in the front. I have found two bike motors on the web. One is from France and is outragisly priced. However, it has been in use for a long time and is tried and true. The other is out of N. Y.

So you want to know how to replace your washer. Can you elaberate a little more? I mean first you got the head of the bolt sticking out that coppressis the whole assembly, right? Take the universal tool,(a 10" Cresent Wreach) adjust it to size, and screw the bolt counter clockwize. Once you get it out, then the grommet retainer, grommet, and the spring housing, as well as the spring, should be in your hands. Now the trick is to putt it all back together wile fighting the tention of the spring.[I assume you allready have a new rubber grommet, I'm not a parts house!] You could get a 300 lb friend to come over, or you could use a c-clamp and an opened end wrench.{like your trusty Cresent} If anymore good questions out there, you'll have to wait, I'm tired of scrolling.
