Having just returned from a freezing workshop where I have created a monstrosity of left overs and bodged broken parts, it would be nice whilst I have a warm cup of tea to see your single speed creations.
The Frankenbike as I have christened it has cost me a bank busting £17 to build and will not be coming to a BOTM competition thats for sure. But you know what- its a hoot to ride! Its pretty damn light as well considering the smattering of low rent and no name parts that are on it.
Can't wait to go find some sticky stodgy mud to thrash it through in the morning! I may even risk breaking the camera on the ugly bastard!

So lets see them :wink:

My 1992 Gt Talera SS

Same as you it is a cheap and cheerful machine that has cost next to nothing to create, and is also an ongoing thing.

Looks like a lot of the stuff I've got hanging around in my sheds and garage. If I can find enough bits for an aheadset I may make up Frankenbike junior :P It's a GT too, Arrowhead with GT's own triple butted bolonga lite forks.................
Only difference is your colors match, unless I get busy with a can of plasticoat :?
