Thought I’d give an intro to myself and my latest Ghetto Rig Ive pieced together to commute to the city.
The frame was a spray painted blue Malvern Star jobbie I picked up for free when I bought another frame from old mate in Glebe.
The same legend of an individual helped me out a few weeks later when I had destroyed my coaster wheel and detonated the original 10 speed wheel, with another back wheel off who knows what.
Bars are some cut down profiles off my old specialized stump jumper and Pedals are the old cheapo toe cages you used to get.
Grips, Lever and nut bar are from my old BMX.
Front sprocket was on the frame and just has the smaller cog removed so is a 52 and an absolute carnt to ride up king street.
Had to buy a new front tyre and 2 x tubes. ($40)
And of course the left over race tape used on the Torana to give a sweet as paint scheme.
Theres no need for closer photos as it doesn’t get any prettier the closer you get, I have given you some artsy jobbies though.
So in the end I get hours of fun riding and can track stand the shit out of the wankers on the $12k road bikes at lights all for $40.
And my name is Guy, G’day.
