    Runt Bike Build

    Last Friday night, I went to the neighboring city and picked up this nice blue runt bike. Ordered a few new parts. And the got the rest of what I needed together.

    I ended up using the rear end of the sport frame that I had previously broken (jumping off a 5ft ledge). Cut a stock pole to size. Got some stainless bar and welded and boxed in the rear.

    I am very satisfied with the end result. I just need to hook up the throttle cable and put the new carb on that is coming in the mail. Running an LH with .850 3rd bearing. Should go about 16mph.

    I need a seat, and a better foot placement system. I was thinking about leaving the pedals but just having them be in the same orientation, and lock them out front. Delete the sprocket.

    I took the pedals off mine and got pegs that thread on where they came off. As for a seat, go to wal mart or a bike store and get whatever you like. I went with a big flat Schwinn seat.

    The funk bikes are fun. We call mine the death machine

    Yeah I got the carb today and got it running. Goes ~20mph which is tons of fun on this tiny bike. After riding it, I will be pulling the pedals off and putting pegs on. The seat will probably come whenever I come across one.

    I want to go even faster now!!! haha maybe even a rear beadlock?

    Yeah, I thought of many different designs, and since we already had stainless bar laying around I decided to box it in to the frame to make it sturdy. Looks better that way too haha

    Psh. Lightweight. I’m 6’2 and I rip my runt bike all over. Put my head kit 230 on it and did 36mph.
