CUSTOMS:   forks posted by: Zack on 11/22/2000 at 12:29:38 AM
Hey guys, I'm putting together a custom chopper from a 26" Schwinn middleweight frame. I need some long forks to really get my front wheel extended. Does anyone know anybody who sells long chopper forks? I am also considering experimenting with motorcycle forks and possible even a motorcycle triple tree clamp. Has anyone else ever experimented with this? Please let me know. Thanks.

Have you tried looking at the local bone yard? Where I live you have motorcycles, parts & mopeds. Try checking out a moped front end. Check out the lower & top trees. If your not familar these terms, they are the brackets if you will, that hold the fork tubes. Measure the neck on your frame. Then the inside diamiter of your frame neck, and do the same to the moped. Check out the length of the fork stem.

Check out the parts dept. at http://phatcycles.com
They have a really good-looking extended triple-tree fork.
It would be a lot easier than adapting something else.

I have a mono-tube fork (as per c.h.u.n.k. 666 catagories)about 4-4 1/2 feet long. It is the long head tube style, and the actual forks take a 20in. wheel. It is super-duty strong. I really like the triple-tree looks though.
E-mail me if interested.

AGE / VALUE:   riding lowriders posted by: basic on 11/19/2000 at 11:48:22 AM
I live in Gainesville Ga. Due to our local economy, we have a large population of hispanic people. They come from mostly Mexico, Texas, and California. They are adding to the local culture by bring theirs with them. I did custom paint and body work for a while and I also build bikes. I have built several lowriders and they were ridden. We ride at car shows, and other events. I see a lot of lowriders used for transportation by kids in my town. Small cranks going round and round across a parking lot is an awesome sight to behold, and the spare wheel is a nice touch. I passed a dude a couople of months back, pedaling down the street on a nice three wheeler with a trailer and a car stereo system. Smiling from ear to ear. I don't imagine we have as high a crime rate as LA, but we do have one. My buddies' bikes were stolen off thier front porch in broad daylight. Later, we found the kids riding them, but they had parted out most of the parts, and we recovered little of value. The point is, you spend a lot of effort and cash building an extension of your personality, and someone else's little monsters without respect try to relieve you of them. It's a tough decision for a kid to have the baddest bike, but not ever ride it around. But if you want to keep it, unfortunately, you might have to make choices. I ride my bikes at car shows, and am always keeping one eye on it while in line for food, shirts, etc.
Owning a lowrider goes beyond the functionality of the bicycle, and becomes a part of a larger entity, about passion, dedication, and respect. If you have ever seen a lowrider project all the way through, you would never want to steal someone else's. You just understand, and those who don't, don't.

Whats up, I was wondering why you guys don't take atvantage of the after market products they offer to the lowrider guys. I like to build original sting rays. The frames and the bikes are getting more hard to find. Your bikes are cool. But if you are going to put the bondo on the frames, put it on the after market stuff first. These are tiawan frames. They are not real Schwinn frames. So please use the after markets they have first. Please concider it. A collector. Thanks guys. Paul Phonix Arizona.

          RE:RE:AGE / VALUE:   riding lowriders posted by JimW. on 11/20/2000 at 9:21:07 AM
I'm not going to weigh in on riding one's masterpiece. My Schwinn
Continental cost me $40 and I'm paranoid about it. If I'd sunk
3 grand into it, I'd think several times before taking it outside.
However,I'll gladly get into the issue of "desecrating the classics".

Millions of Stingrays were built. They were ridden hard, and
most of them ended up trashed. That's why mint specimens are
worth big bucks. The ones that were trashed are improved by being
being made into lowriders. Why should a kid be expected to spend
$40-50 for an inferior knockoff frame, when he can pull a sturdy
Schwinn frame from a dumpster for nothing?

My Schwinn desecration experience goes way back. In the mid-'60s, I took my
younger brother's outgrown 20" Schwinn kiddybike, and desecrated
it into a musclebike. Schwinn started doing the same thing back
then, so what? If these Schwinn preservationists had access to time
machines, they'd go back in time and try to stop kids from actually
riding their Stingrays. And they would be laughed at for their
presumption. This is a planet, not a museum. Just be happy
that there were some anal-retentive little dorks back then who
kept their prized bikes indoors without riding them.

The same people who want us to treat Stingrays as holy artifacts
are the same ones who will tell you that my Continental is worth
ten bucks, because they're common. Varsitys and Continentals
were made in the same quantities as Stingrays, however, they were
used by more mature owners, who didn't abuse them. Consequently,
there are lots of clean ($10)ones around.

We at BikeRod&Kustom are presently formulating classes for
drag-racing bicycles. One category of racers will be based
upon steel 10-speed frames. If it catches on, the Varsities
and Continentals which survive intact will be worth as much
in the future as Stingrays are now. "Bicycle Investors" and
kneejerk preservationists would be wise to start stocking up
while they have the chance. Just don't expect the rest of us
to preserve them for you.

Getting back to the riding issue-if I had a Stingray nowadays,
I probably wouldn't ride it, either. Not because of its sacredness,
but because an adult on a Stingray looks like a retard at best,
and a clown at worst. Or is it the other way around?

The schwinn's cantilever lines are of the cleanest design, and the pride of building a lo-lo starts with the foundation of a respectable frame, you wouldn't sink 3k into a no-name frame, you just don't make a concours show car out of a Yugo. I understand the collector's side of it also, I have restored bikes in the past. It's just how it goes down. I think collector's should realize the value and beauty of some of the other "off-brands" also, There are other bike to restore besides schwinns that have way more character. Give me a Screamer and I'd be happy!

Hey Jim, I know you wrote this post a couple of weeks ago. Sometimes, and I am speaking for myself, I need to go back and read the older posts over again, to get a full impact what the writer is saying. On certian issues when it comes to what the the bikes are meant to do in our daily lives. We are and others are from a era of adventure and conquering our dreams threw the activities threw riding a bicycle. I'm not saying young people today don't go out and have fun riding there bikes. I'm just saying, we had a time when our bicycles were being influenced by the Kustom Kulture era. It was alot of fun, and still is. I belive this era is the foundation of todays muscle bike collectors, and the lowrider bicycle circuit. From the old hot rods and the old dragsters and not to mention, the muscle cars and the chopped down harleys of the 50's 60's & the early 70's. We were rich in change. So when you have a guy who is trying to restore a old muscle bike or a old balloon bike, he is either letting you know he never had it, or if he has it now, he's not going to let it go now that he has it. I believe I just let the cat out of the bagg!

Bruno, you can get three wheeler rear ends at
www.aztlanbicycle.com or www.lovelylowrider.com.
The aztlan site sell complete trikes but I am sure
if you called them they would sell you the rear end.
Lovely lowrider sell just the rear end in 20" and 26".

I can tell I may have hit home with some of you guys. I hope the reason so far for no replies is, you got that Kustom bike out of the garage and started riding it. I would like to here from someone in California. Read this carefully.Only if this applies to you.If this does not apply to you ,be gone! I want you to ask your selfs, if this post boughters you in any way, why? Is it because there is some truth in what i'm saying? Or am I so far out in left feild". If you beleive in your opinion strongly, then post it. Please step up to the plate. I respect that, and care to here what you have to say. Remember this, and correct me if I am wrong. Lets say for a moment, that the inventors of the bicycle made the wheel sqaure,now think about that for a while". I would think there intentions would be to keep the bike from rolling. MAN! just the thought of that drives me wild! Since they made the wheel round, now think about it, Lets assume they wanted the bike to ROLL! Don't get huffy now, and i'm not talking about the bicycle either. Reply with some deep and wize thoughts, and no need for "Drama Mamas". Larry

          RE:AGE / VALUE:   California lowriding? posted by Larry on 11/13/2000 at 6:56:45 AM
I have a problem with your post. Why do you spend so much of your time on our bikes? Why do you think we have to ride our bikes? Why can't you find something else to do with your time? I think all it is, your just dying with envy that you can't own a lowrider bicycle. You will not change a thing by posting these so called issues! You just need to get on your bike and loose your way home. Maybe you don't even ride a bike. I think you you ride a scooter, and you may think your lowriding then. I really don't know your real problem. But this is the way its going be! If I want to stand there and look at my bike and fantisize that everybody loves my bike, so be it. So if I want to ride my bike down my drive and back up, I will. If I want to stand there and talk to my freinds and pose there like i'm really talking about something really important, so be it. I like going to the shows. We don't think about riding our bikes, because we are dreaming about people comming up to us asking us for our autograph and things like that. Its ok to dream if we want. Don't try to wake us up. We refuse to listen to you. So remember this, we don't ride our bikes because we don't want to. I can't bare to get my tires dirty.

Good morning, Larry. Now we already have something in commom. Our names are the same. WOW! what are the chances for that." Even your e-mail is the same" now thats "SPOOKY."Ok lets answer some of these questions you have. First of all before I go on, I tought I was the only one on this here site. It was like waiting for the bus when Los Angeles was having the bus stike! So back to the questions. First of all, I do go out riding my bike and get lost every now and then. But unfortionatly I find my way home, what can I say! Yes I do have extra time on my hands. I enjoy looking at a lowrider bicycle magazine every now and then. When I look at the pictures theres a lot of talent out there. I see father and sons together doing some quality time together, and that is good. And your right most of those bikes look 10 times better than the furniture in my home. All that crushed veluor seats, the little baby booties on the pedals, the steering wheels that could fit on a pedal car. But most of all, the wheel hanging off the rear fender. Is that like a spare tire if you get a flat? But you have to ride the bike first, to get a flat", right? Oh just for the record, this is for the guys in California.

Mr. Kotch, Its good to here from you. I have been waiting to here from somebody on this here issue. I would like to answer a few of your questions. Yes I am from L.A. Pico Rivera California home grown to! And we both know that Whittier blvd is the Krusing capital for lowriding. Ask anybody. This is where it started. So back to the real issues here. You said you built your son a very expensive bike. Then some low life indivisual took it from him. Now thats what I want to talk about. This is one of the reasons you don't see these bicycles out and about. Its for that reality of this here bicycle building you cannot ride with out being with others. This is why I wanted somebody out there to reply on it. I am glad to read your son is alright. But you know what? there is no way in Gods green earth this pin head can ride this bike you built. With out somebody seeing him that may know you. So next time you go to a show, you just might walk by your bike with out you knowing it. That is the hard reality of it all. The most important thing you have going for you still, you have your son. Make your self a Krusier and go out and ride together, so he can remember not only, the bad that had happened, but the times he rode with his dad.

The site says Kustoms and Lowrider Bicycle discussion. So lets talk to the people who build STRICKLY Kustom bicycles. And if you ride your lowrider bicycle you can stay if you want. Lets talk about posting replys. Now when somebody replys to your ideas or your opinion, don't get your shorts in a "knot! Just read it carefully. Now think about it for a while. Heres a site we can all share our ideas about buiding a better ride. Now how many people like Kustom bike building? Now how many people ride what they build? The reason I ask these questions, when you can ride what you build, and not what somebody else built,you can seperate your self from the rest. Because you built your bike. Now thats some real passion behind the bars. This is the reality of Kustom Bike Building. Now for the younger members, you may not have the expereince, and the older guy's who never had the experince building a bike in there life time, its never to late. Fathers take your sons if you will and create a pair or more prodjects, and not only build a Kustom bike or two, but build a relationship with your sons or daughters. Us good people are very lucky these days, to get so much information from sites like OLD ROADES,and others. So if you have questions about building your own Kustom, you don't have to look far. We are all here for one another, so if you will, please feel free to post your replys. RIDE TO LIVE! LIVE TO RIDE! LARRY L.

As you can see from the previous message, I wasn't planning
to post the long official announcement on the lists this time,
I sent it to the BR&K E-mail list. Vin suggested posting it, so
here it is in its entirety....

Memo From The Editor, Jim Wilson: BikeRod&Kustom, The WebZine of Creative Cyclery-
Volume 2, Issue 3 is ready when you are. You will find it at http://bikerodnkustom.homestead.com

In the mid-'60s, Robert Q. Riley created the first modern recumbent bicycle. Called Ground Hugger,
it was designed around salvaged bike parts and welded steel tubing. In 1969, Popular Mechanics magazine
published Mr. Riley's plans for the home constructor to build the bike. Since then, thousands of copies have been sold. From this humble beginning, Mr. Riley has gone on to design dozens of different plan-sets; for everything from exotic sports-cars, to boats, to submarines, to jet engines, all meant to be constructed by ordinary human beings in their garages or back yards.

All these years of work have honed Mr. Riley's engineering, design, and instructional skills to a razor edge. The last few years have seen yet another tool added to his already formidable arsenal of attributes: high-end computer-aided design facilities. Having reached a truly awesome level of design skill, with tools sufficient to match his ideas, the year 2000 will now see his most brilliant-ever design released to the waiting DIY world- yet another bicycle.

Called Ground Hugger XR2, it is indubitably the most advanced and efficient land vehicle on Earth.
As a side benefit, it is also extremely beautiful. It is made of plastic foam, carbon fiber cloth, vinylester resin, and aluminum. Like the rest of Mr. Riley's designs, it is intended to be built in garages, back yards,
or, in this case, cramped apartments, by ordinary humans.

Two issues back, we featured the since-tragically-deceased Bruce Bursford, designer of The Ultimate Bike, IOHO, the second most advanced and efficient land vehicle in the world. The UB, a carbon-fiber- composite upright bike (wedgie) was designed, and is manufactured, utilizing the ultra-hi-tech facilities and faculties of the British aerospace industry. It retails for approximately $20,000 USD.

Ground Hugger XR2 is designed to be built by just about anyone with a DIY Jones, at a cost of less than $1,000 for parts and materials, during a couple of weeks' leisure-time activity.

We spent at least that much time interrogating the brilliant Mr. Riley. The resultant interview is filled with insights into the mind and personality of one of the more awesome and fascinating individuals we have ever encountered. We spent another couple of weeks studying, analyzing, and playing with the instruction kit Mr. Riley has produced for XR2 builders. Like the bike, it is also the most advanced of its kind. It consists of a printed manual, large paper plan sheets, and a CD ROM disc, containing an incredible array of content, features, and software which, among other things, allows one to view all aspects of the actual digital 3D engineering model of the machine and all its sub-components, from any viewpoint, at any degree of magnification. There has never been a home-builder plan-set as comprehensive as this. Our exhaustive review accompanies the interview with Mr. Riley.

This issue also features the inception of a much-needed pictorial index for our KustomBike Kreator's Gallery, the very heart 'N' soul of our 'Zine. As more people learn of BR&K, the only web entity devoted entirely to this art form, the amount of input grows in quantum leaps. New additions to the Gallery comprise almost a dozen new bikes, from all over the US, Canada, England, and Australia. They range from the mildest of the mild to the wildest of the wild. And they are all extremely beautiful.

V2.3's Design Lab feature is by Zachariah Smith, who has invented a bike he calls Transformer, which morphs from MountainBike to SWB Recumbent and back again, with a few clicks. Our Associate Editor, Michael "Captain Fantastic" Watson introduces a new feature- "Talent Scout" in which he combs the web seeking-out builders of bikes as astounding as his own. Seeing the results of his search, and his latest bike creations in the Gallery, you will be the judge of that.

In our Off-Topic feature in this issue, we show miniature toy X-Bikes, the mouth-watering Kustom Parts of Phat Cycles, a hydrogen-fueled electro-bike breakthrough, a unique folding mountain bike and multi-configuration handlebars from Sanguil of Korea, and luxurious chrome-and-leather cruiser saddles from Jackson Saddles, Michigan USA.


In addition, we have a sequel to an earlier survey article on moto-bicycles and bike motors, an area which is expanding incredibly rapidly. In Moto2: The Madness Continues, we show and discuss the latest developments in this exciting field. As a special treat to many people, we deliver a well-placed kick to
the seat of the trousers of Mr. Lee "K-Car" Iacocca. The Auto World is an old-boy's network. With his e-bike involvement, he jumps into a game which is played by Bike World rules. Here at BR&K, WE DON' GOT ANY STEENKIN' RULES AT ALL , M O F O ! Might we recommend that you view the article before the e-bike Corporation's legal representation enjoins us from using their product shot?

Finally, in this issue, we have a new regular feature: Ask Dr. Kranknfork, in which our readers get answers to their kustom-bike-related questions. This issue's question is to do with where to find those snazzy Indian-motorcycle-style ducktail fenders that all the koolest rides are sporting.

This Golden Wrench award go's to Sabastian. This guy really enjoys building Kustoms. He enjoys riding them to! This isn't just a good wrench, he's a hard working young man in Germany. One of his many passions is his bike. This bike is posted in the Biker Rod & Kustom web site. You can see his big smile from ear to ear. The reason for that is, he built his bike with a lot of pride. At this present time as we speak, the rain is comming down in his country. So riding isn't a great idea at the moment. So it is fair to say that if this young man lived in my part of town I would most defenitly see him Krusing his Kustom Kreation. See he's down because he doesn't have a choice. Now just to let you know something, its not he who is posting this reply. These are my words. I had talked to this young man and he told me the reason we had not heard from him lately. He has been working hard, and is thinking up new ideas for his up and comming new prodject. Another quality this guy has is, he is going to build his girlfreind a Kustom to. She's one lucky lady.

I got permission to go behind the counter and I snatched up this long stem and started to think as I had it in my hand. Mentally, I left the shop and was in my workshop with this and I was thinking what to use it on. What crazy project called out for such a part? I came back to the shop to hear the guy say something about it belonging to a recumbant, that it was $100.00, but they could sell me just that part if I needed it. He grinned as I put it back on the counter. Now I'm looking at recumbant parts and wondering.....

I know the steps to actually doing the Bondo job but what should I do to prepare the frame to make sure the bondo stays securely to the frame for a long time. i.e. take of old paint, etc. ANY SUGGESTIONS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED P.S. I could always use more info on the actual Bondo too, i.e. what kind of Bondo to use, how much I will need and what process works best.

You should prep the surface exactly as you would for paint,
degrease it and clean it. If you want maximum bond, roughen
the surface with coarse emery cloth.

If it says "Bondo" on the kit, that's the right one. Follow
the directions. I recommend building it up in thinner layers.
One giant mass of the stuff is hard to shape while flexible.

AGE / VALUE:   I need info posted by: kevin on 10/22/2000 at 2:11:37 PM
I recently found a 20 inch girl's iverson bike that says road runner on the chainguard, it was complete, but it is completely rusted and i am goin to restore it. The handlebars are attached differently than i have ever seen, each bar has its own hole to attach into. i would like to know how old and how much money this bike is worth. my e-mail is Low_Ridez_Kid@goplay.com

According to Conrad Rupprecht, this one was designed by
George Barris, and was seen in The old TV show "Family
Affair". He has a photo from a book showing the twin kids
from the show with their Iverson bikes. The girl's has one
of those little baskets on the bars. They're not particularly
valuable to non kustomizers.

Is Kevin telling us he has a bike that was used in the Family Affair t.v. show? If so, that cool!!

LOOK FRISKIS, LOWRIDING IS A WAY OF LIFE OUT HERE IN SO. CALIFORNIA FOR SOME, NOT ALL. SO WHEN IT COMES TO WHAT YOU MAY CALL A LOWRIDER BICYCLE, SOME MAY CALL IT A KUSTOM. FROM WHERE I STAND I SEE NO RULES IN THIS STYLE OF BIKE. IF YOU LIKE TWISTED PARTS" GO FOR IT! IF YOU LIKE GOLD PARTS RUN WITH IT! IF YOU LIKE CHROME PARTS PUT THEM ON, AND HOPE NOBODY LIKES IT! SO WHAT MAY BE TRUE TO SOME, MAY NOT BE RIGHT WITH OTHERS. THE MAIN THING IS YOU LIKE IT, YOU RIDE IT, AND ENJOY IT. ANOTHER THING I HAVE LEARNED IN THIS STYLE OF BIKE IS, IF YOUR ELBOWS DON'T DRAGG YOU ARE A BLEEP! AND IF YOUR KNEES DON'T HIT YOUR CHIN, YOUR NOT INN. WE ALL NEED TO KEEP COMUNICATION FLOWING HERE. BECAUSE WE LOVE WHAT WE DO ON OUR SPARE TIME. AND THREW THE BICYCLE WE AS HUMANS CAN ENJOY THIS GREAT HOBBY.DON'T BE SHY STOP AND SAY HI!
