An all home built

Post by chopaweeza » Mon Jul 10, 2006 12:27 pm

Belongs to Fat Tony at the moment. He built everything including the entire girder assembly, frame and almost everything else. The front hub is a 1 off twin disc item, it has 27 gears, a Fireblade rear wheel and is easy & comfy to ride. He has it for sale if anyones interested.

Love the oversize frame, fat rear and especially that twin disk setup. Was it much of a problem getting it together ? ( the disks )

Did you split two standard single disk hub's or adapt the original, or engineer it from scratch ?
Rock on !

The front hub was a piece that cost him $500 to get machined up. It uses to right side calipers and discs with an cool custom mount for the left side as well. The frame was originally a set of kids bunk beds. It was done that way just to be different

aaaahhhh, I see

Looks like I'll be sticking to the single front disk option for a while to come.

With a handle like 'Fat Tony' he probably needs the extra stopping power, and the giant rear too for that matter !! heh
Rock on !

Er Um, Fat Tony isn't er um Fat. He's about 60 kilos wringing wet. He did it purely because someone said it couldn't be done. The back break is a 2 piston caliper off a Husky Trail bike on a honda disc. The rear is actuated via a VT250 Clutch Master Cylinder with the lever trimmed to match the right handlebar master cylinder. Very trick to say the least
