KINK Empire Revision B, Garbage Plate / Indestructible Tank Build !!!

This is a build thread of an early KINK Empire Revision B.  I found this frame online and just felt sad sad .  This poor frame was just sitting in some guys garage.  It had been sitting for years, thrown to the side and forgotten.  This frame is new, but not perfect.  All this bike had was a headset installed thats it, the paint is still inside the rear dropouts and on the 990 mounts.  There are scratches and it is missing the right side 'Empire Revision B''  decal but all the other ones are there cool .   What to do with this frame?  I thought its not in 100% perfect condition to never build and have it as a wall hanger, so I would do the only other thing to do.  Build it in to an indestructible tank, a bike that would laugh at whatever you ride and make you question if your man enough to break tongue .

here are pics...  TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK !

*Started with some parts from my Box-O-Parts,  PRIMO seat post clamp, ??? Raw seat post, and Black Haro Mirra seat.  Also Raw S&M Pitchforks with the old style decals, retro wink

*Installed a Dia Compe Tank headset, also SST Oryg gyro and lower cable.  Tried a S&M Redneck... but didnt look right...

*Kink Crossbolt, thats better!
http://i1200.photobucket.com/albums/bb334/RDaniel2405/34e2454f.jpg


*Installed some PRIMO Moe's Bars, Tech 77's, ODI Longnecks, and brake cables

*Got a Profile SS 180 crank, used a Profile Blackjack 44t sprocket with Profile Porkchop Guard cool

Now just waiting for the mail man to deliver me more parts.  I have another pair of moes bars coming in the mail, Im going to strip them Raw to keep going with the whole raw look. cool  If the bars dont look good raw, then I might try to trade my raw forks for black ones and raw seat post for a black post also wink .

If I ever get a Green Backtrail Pro frame, The red one I have now will be going up for sale whole or parted out.  For now shes ok with me having 3 bikes, as long as she can ride one.  I let her ride around on that Sabbath I have since it has a 19'' top tube and 175mm crank. Not too big for her.  wink

I have not had any updates in a few weeks, but here are some parts I picked up.  I got a NOS Kink Sprocket and Guard, I dont know what sprocket I will use yet.  Also got some Primo Pro Pedals, and a better condition Kink Seat Post Clamp.

Re: KINK Empire Revision B, Garbage Plate / Indestructible Tank Build !!!

Got some more parts,  Black OG Kink Forks, Black Primo The Rod, and a new glass for beers wink   I'm going to be changing the 3 raw parts out for black ones, the bars, the forks, the handlebars.  If anyone has some OG Kink decals, and would like to sell them let me know.

This is coming along great! Loving your parts. Had a tank once myself (Volume Destroyer) and made the mistake of trading it off.
