Best Bike

Discussion in 'Photos & Bicycle Builds' started by Zomby Builder, Mar 7, 2008.

  1. This is the best bike I ever built. Last year I only had to change oil & polish the chrome. Thank You Japan for the killer reliable Robin/Subaru.
    My garage is full of broken bikes, with the exception of this one../.. And yes, she's been around the Block!

    OLE' RELIABLE has its' merits.

  4. That drive train is beautiful too. I'm going to go search for the construction thread for inspiration for my bike. How big is that Robin engine?
     
  5. Robin 35

    She is a 35 cc. All stock. Starts on 2nd pull when cold. 1st when all warmed up. Not the fastest bike in the barn, but solid 22 mph. Fuel tank is under motor. No mix, just regular gas. I love pedaling her backwards.

    i get busy 'round here, but i see this stuff on the fly and am still daily-amazed at
    the stuff y'all come up with...doesn't look quite dyno or micargi...?

    micargi with better rear-dropouts?

    anywhatever, she's beautiful...but, it could be coated in rust and
    corrosion and i'd still completely admire yer engineering skills :cool:

    please tell us you're coming to the august rally with some of your bikes...

    I believe they call this bike a coupe-deluxe. I bought it damaged at the swap meet in 2003 and I have seen them since for sale at a local shop in Escondido. Brand new one costs about 300 but EEbay about 220. Bought it with regular stock cruiser stuff on it coaster rear, springer front. Good frame for adding a jack shaft, this one has a pillow bearing supported jack shaft that is bolted to a weld on plate.
    She has grease fittings & rolls soo smooth. Compensates for slight mis alLiGn MENTS of the drive axle bearings.

    pillow drive 2.jpg I love Her.... Better than my bottom bracket design... Might have to take a step in the reverse direction with future builds....

    so zombie the frame comes with the plate to bolt on a jack shaft or you got the jackshaft plate and welded it on and then ordered a jack shaft in other words did the frame come stock with the plate to have the option to bolt a jackshaft larry ca

    so the frame came with that option to add a jackshaft via the plate with the four bolt holes or did you just weld it on . And if so were did you get the jackshaft. Larry ca
     
  13. Made the plate

    This is just a stock bicycle frame. I made the plate & the jack parts are from www.staton-inc.com They are regular 5/8 go cart parts.

    I've been through the Staton site from one end to the other, and somehow always missed that page or something. Those pillow block bearings may come in handy when I convert my Trek from friction to chain. Thanks for the link.

    Another beautiful, professional looking build.

    Where did the rims come from?
     
  16. Rims

    These rims are made by Centerline in Phoenix. I bought them from
    Pacific Coast Bicycles in Pacific Beach CA.
