Klunker Update

Posted by Jeff Hendricks

Here's a shot of the Rat Klunker, my entry for the 7th annual Rat Rod Bikes Build-Off. Still waiting on a seatpost, chain, cables, and a few other bits and pieces. Can't wait to ride this thing!

Happy Birthday to Me!

Posted by Jeff Hendricks

Went for a 50-mile bike ride this morning with the local bike club (they're awesome) and when I got home, my mother surprised me with this little gem she had found in the trash!

Building Wheels

Posted by Jeff Hendricks

Built the bike’s front wheel today. Used a $10 vintage BMX hub, and used spokes and a used 26″ rim. And red Krylon paint.
