Cranks are heavier than the whole rest of it:

Re: Be proud of heavy metal / low end bikes

I'm putting together a rat-bike beater of sorts. A wal-goose frame I got in a lot of parts on Craigslist. What makes it special to me though is I'll be using the circa 1979 department store mags I bought as a kid.

Would it be wrong to put the Gold Stem on it that I about around the same time?

Re: Be proud of heavy metal / low end bikes

Yeah, baby!  About 10 lbs heavier than my MTB.

Re: Be proud of heavy metal / low end bikes

BITD during the mid to late 80's, 30+lb's was the norm for a street rider. so hopping up picnic tables and 4' airs off of a curb took real skill and upper body strength!

if you got one of those bulimic scarecrow looking kids that lurk around the parks these days, i don't think they would be able to lift one of these tanks out of the trunk much less jump it!

i love these rigs!

Re: Be proud of heavy metal / low end bikes

Love these low budget tanks.I sold my Solid"Killing Machine" with some Haro forks with stupid thick 14mm drops last year.I was afraid I was going to get a hernia bunny hopping a curb one day.Those frames must be like 8 lbs. alone.But I would do 8ft.loading docks to flat concrete without a whimper.Did destroy some cranks and snap a pedal though.Keep em coming!

Re: Be proud of heavy metal / low end bikes

I have a 2003 Mirra 540 Air that will hopefully be less than 30lb when it's done. chances are it won't. I'll take my sub 25 lb black weapon of choice over anything I used to ride any day.

Re: Be proud of heavy metal / low end bikes

Cheap rides and heavy metal...

1997 Schwinn Hydraglide - $16 at the local salvation army, so I didn't pay much for it, and this thing is definitely a tank:

as far as low end, got that too - 2005 Kent Shogun my son and I are doing over:
