Venice Board Track Racer

Discussion in 'Photos & Bicycle Builds' started by, Feb 25, 2010.

  1. Here's my first attempt at building a boardie. It's a 1955 Schwinn Panther. (It was the Voodoo Chopper on my website, but I wanted to change it! )
    The bike is still in the building stage, & there's still lots of work I have to do on it, (like weld the pipe, weld a custom seat post & lace up a front disc brake... ) but I think it will be ready in time for the March 7th beach ride!!

    Big props to Pat Dolan for the custom made stainless steel tank!! (Your tanks are awesome bro!!)

    With the tank and the exhaust where did you get the idea? I mean like i thought of stuff like that, but did you buy it? Make it!? Even the front fork wowww:idea:
  7. I finally finished it; Here it is...
    I've done a lot to it since I last posted pics.
    I installed a small 'Lucky 7' front sprocket & lowered the engine in the frame; I made a better pipe hanger, & I finally laced in the front hub & installed one of my front disc brakes. (& I installed a new engine...)
