  • Update on Beer Keg Chopper

    Finally got some more decent weather, so went out an diddled with the beer Keg Chopper a bit more...

    I was going to apply ribs to that rear fender, but those Silver Sharpie Pen lines look good enough for now!

    If you need additional decoration, you can always take inspiration from Rat Bike Milo. I saw this bike at Rolling Thunder a year back. Check out the pics:

      Foot,
      Looking good as always. I see you moved the tanks so they clear the top of the frame tube now. Looks much better. Any chance you can move the motor forward in the frame so it doesn't look so imbalanced? Maybe a front fender to match the rear?

        Thanks, guys! I prefer the "heavy rear" look. I am considering replacing the headlight with a skull (maybe an animals?), then running "scaly spines" all the way down the upper frame tube, and down the rear fender. We'll see...

            Lookin good Hotfoot, dig the skull idea too.

            RockyD...the difference between the 2 "bikes" being that I believe that one USMCPOP posted, is actually ridden

              Hotfoot, I saw this trick on another (actual) bike: weld an old license plate between the tanks and over the rib of the frame.

              Needs a tractor seat ,,,,,,

                Yup. I'm considering a "cut down" tractor seat, or even a shovel seat...but if I end up putting a rider on it, I'll forgo a seat and just attach him/it to the frame.
