I love this bike. Grandpa brought it 30 years ago in the same condition it is now.



It is the bike frame of a Swchin Packard welded to a narrowed trailer axle with a box on the back.




I'm goin to put a 8 hp briggs on it with a comet clutch.
Mock-up






I xj2010 had a little helping in the decincion of what i was goin to do with the bike and dad brought the motor so I was in haven!

Not the bike expected is it!!!!

Definately fits the freaky theme:thumbsup:

Get some gnarly mountain bike tires with agressive tread so you can also take it in the pit. :D

Kyle I got the thing stripped down to a pile of parts waiting to be sanded and painted. It took an hour and a 3 jaw gear puller to get bout back wheels off.

Thanks for the update, when do you expect to finish it?
When I get back from disney world after christmas I'm goin to sand her down and paint her then buy new bearing and put her back together. Mount the motor then I'll have to buy the clutch and rest of the junk I need. So probably around feburary is what i plan.
