2017 heavyweight build off entry submission thread. post your entry !

big_smile OK it's time for this years 2017  heavyweight build off entry submission thread. starting a few days late do to spring build off tongue
dead line to enter  a frame to build in to a rad bike is July 1. any one can enter any year BmX bike type 20" frame tongue you just limit your build time by entering later than early. so post up a entry any time  before July first. then get to building!
we don't go big on re chromed or fresh powder in this build off most are Mid school bikes re built to be a solid bike we can still thrash on. while killing it on the streets/skate park or at the trails so pegs can have grind marks, frame can have paint chips, parts can be rusty, wheels could be  spay boomed. frames can be raw no paint  this is a rider build off! not many bling bling triple chromed  carpet queens here. in this build off. we build riders! but fell free to bring a queen if that's what your in to.

sure  lots of Midschool  bikes would be a fave to win. but don't rule out some of them old 70's BMX with steal wheels , cast moto style mags. 80's freestyle bikes with Peregrine or Skyway mags, or the new school puss bikes like the Mongoose hoop D strip the ugly off that stock duck make it a swan.

post up a picture of the frame or bike you will be building in this build off.  tell us the Brand ,make and model of your frame. or  as much as you know about it. don't have the bike in hand yet. just the sellers picture will do to enter build off.

you can enter up to 4 bikes all bikes most have 20" wheels
bike dose not need to be mid school
but that was when  true tanks bikes hit market  foe sale!lol enter any year 20" bike Race,freestyle,dirt or Skate park/street.

after July 1 you still have a 2 month window to get them done that's what 10 weeks tight but more than enough time!

this is a heavyweight build off  so your judged on not just the builds looks. but can have the bragging rights of heaviest bike  in BMX museum to date.tongue
when the finale picture thread go's up for the completed done bikes smile so we can get to voting and weigh in tongue
in final picture thread please re post your before entry frame/bike picture. then post up to 6 new pictures off the finished beast. make one of the pictures a action / rider shot. any action you fell comfortable doing. IE wheelie, bunny hop , grind, stair jump, or what ever. you get the picture. just show us it really can be called a rider by riding it tongue

don't for get a weigh in picture of it on some type of scale! ( like the ones bike shops use)[./b] then talk up your build. tell us about it and all the Rad parts you put on it.[b] that's 1 ride shot , 1 weight shot + 4 shots  from left side, right side front and back of bike so we can see all your hard work.

then   we open up the fibal Vote thread thread with a vote pole box at top. like what the spring build off had. so every museum member can vote for there fave.   heaviest bike gets 5 extra votes added to his total at end of voting. so that could be a tie killer IE the diff between first place and number 2 spot!wink

building starts now  wright after you submit a entry in!!!!!!!!!!   


GAry's said yeah, excited to have another build off going..
Have at it! Gary said Do what you want. smile

build off is on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cool

im a big fan of your 87 Dyno restoration... The entry doesn't have to be midschool or super heavy according to Freek.  Unless you are wanting being the heaviest.

Re: 2017 heavyweight build off entry submission thread. post your entry !

Ok , I'm IN !
Here's my official entry for the heavy weight build off .
I love me some heavy bikes and It's time the Four Bikes Mecha prototype officially claimed it's rightful place in the BMX museum as heaviest freestyle bike !!

Here's a few quick snaps of the first frame I designed , YES those are 1/2" thick dropouts that the frame builder declined to add the pocketed machine work into to lighten them up so I got two giant boat anchors on the back of my prototype.

I designed the frame with help from engineers from A-Pro and the frame was build from custom drawn tubes A-pro made at Mountain Goat cycles in Chico CA.
This bike was my first bike design and it took the process of a littler over a year from first talks with A-pro / Mountain Goat and Jeff Lindsey until we received the tubes and were able to make the first and only frame. Everything is double butted , oversized and ovalized. The chain stays were the same pieces used on the first gen Morales frames MountainGoat also produced at the time.

Parts -
Hoffman Love Handles gen 2
Solid cranks Gen 1 ( yes I have the bearings ! )
GACK 1/2 axle hubs w/ Love Goat pegs
Hoffman Brewing Company custom fork w/ peg bosses ( HBC was the short lived company started by NorCal legend Craig Hoffman )
and so much more good stuff !!

Both axles are only 3/8 so it'll weight a little less.. hmm

Re: 2017 heavyweight build off entry submission thread. post your entry !

Hmm... I might have to look through my frames today and see if I can come up with a worthwhile entry for this year. Unfortunately I missed last year's finish deadline with my S&M Warpig. It's a complete bike now though, so I'll have to see what else I could build.

Shame I didn't finish it on time because it ended up HEAVY!!! Not sure I have anything that would top it, but hopefully I'll find something to contribute this year!
