CDoherty95 Posted March 19, 2012 Report Share Posted March 19, 2012 Hey y'all I've recently started watching Fall Guy, and developed an extreme love for the truck. For anyone who's unfamiliar with the show, here's a picture of the Goliath of a truckLook at it!! Its what all pickups should be like. Massive wheels and tires, roll bar, push bar and winch. Seen as I'm probably never going to be able to build one, I've done the next best thing and decided to build a bike version!!"oh no here we go again", I hear you say.I began searching for a decent donor on Wednesday, and by Friday had found one. I got it delivered earlier today. Heres a picture of it before I touched it.It's a top of the range off roading bike, costing several hundred dollars new. I managed to get a little bit off the price because of a few small faults. As it is it's a pretty good bike (much better than what I usually start off with) but it only has 7 inches of ground clearance at the pedals. So I've decided to raise the whole frame up about 7 inches. I used mahogany for the ski bike, so I might make a couple of risers out of mahogany and see how they work. Or I might get a small kids bike with the same sort of frame and swap out the front forks and rear dropouts of this bike with the kids bike.I'll post more pics as I go along, but don't expect the posts to be frequent, because I've got a lot of projects going on at the moment.
