Might want to go with 2 tractor butt-shape seats next to each other on springy levers. Your buckboard seat is solid, the back axle is usually solid mount to keep from throwing chains (or sprung heavy enough it's effectively solid) . Maybe the farmer was just all "Meh, its slightly more comfortable than walking way over there and picking up heavy things myself"

Severed hand as a warning to others, or already having accidents before it's even done?

It's looking cool and i can't wait to see where else this is going!

Great idea on liquid rubber plastidip kinda stuff for doing the tires
Thank you Frizz
I'm using stuff that's been laying around for years in the scrap bins.
And I to was thinking I should might have made at least the seat to look like metal. I think a cushion and back rest might save the wood one yet.
As for the wood fellow..I was bored waiting for paint to dry on fenders ahahaha.

Still need to plasti dip three other tires. It actually worked the charm.
No more flaking off paint. Stuck to the rubber awesome. Bit thick and clumpy though..but as it dries it pulls in ok. some weathering might help things look a little more correct.

Still needs some tool boxes and details. And It might get some exhaust if I find time later today.


Thanks for following along and shared Ideas.

Nice! That bike looks really sweet.
Looking at an old Colombia Playbike in my garage, I might shorten the out-turned ends of the Ape Hangars about 1/2 to 1 grip length though. They were made by everybody, with all the custom stuff anybody could think up, if it's cool ride with it!

Ok, now ya got me thinking i've gotta build some kinda of Muscle Bike to stick in the roof racks on my VW bus! Maybe make a Recumbent too... The 24" bmx is too 'modern' and 'normal' looking.

Thanks again "Frizz"
addvice and ideas always appreciated.

I'll see what I can do to make it a bit correct. I seriously just went off what I could remember when I started it ahaha.
I do still want to build the 50's Schwinn bike, and weather it about the same as the picture for the junk pile.
Their fun to build ,and plus I got to dive into some accumulated brass.
Give it a go and see what you can do.
Would look awesome on the VW

On that note..your getting quite the heard on them RC's. The working lights really brings them to life.
