    The second pic is named Vertigo.

    One of the sweetest tall rides ever fabricated.
  16.  
    P.S. Can you still call it a "whip" when it's a chopper?
    I mean, I thought "whip" kinda implies "fast".

    And choppers be slooooww, generally.

    meatball.. not on the forum unless it is you rob), built a bike with (i believe) a 6 foot front wheel and a motorcycle frame as a seat a few years ago. it got stolen just about every other day but it was not that hard to find, normally somewhere in the fens.

    brunop:whoa

    it was parked outside of cambridge bikes.

    Uh, I saw this bike today and it's got a giant penny farthing wheel up front now. Probably about 40". The back end is still the same.The kid's gotta learn that the game never lets up.

    <blockquote><cite> Pugatch is 49x18:</cite>the second bike belongs to a scul person i dont know their name the live with rockstar whose in scul thats their house on inman st</blockquote>

    definitely onath then

    I am not like some uber scul member or anything, I am a member but am kind of a lazy bastid on saturday nights so :/

    but I do remember mars talking about building a bike with a home made pennyfarthing wheel like two years ago and am psyched to learn it has been accomplished!

    also I am not rob but am interested to learn if his nickname comes from the same source :D

    Not Onath Moose built vertigo and Loki Ducker the chopper in front
    also i know rob we used to build crazy bike together when i went to school for a second.
    that bike with the giant front wheel was awesome every time you hit a bump your cheek bones hit the frame and if you fell over you were trapped inside the bike and it fell on top of you. they call him meatball because of the way he would roll when he fell of his bike, the only dude who back flipped every jump in a row back when the dirt jumps were still back in the fens.

    In my shop:





    First ride:


    Ummm, maybe the first pursuit tall bike... Thanks so much to Mark B, Buckley, Dan StG, for helping all day with getting this thing built up. And thanks to Pete and Logan for stopping by and lending a hand. We built this thing in two days, and spent about an hour late Sat night taking turns riding it around. Oh, and it's called "Frankendork" haha!
