    The guys from Transition Bicycles in Washington brought a bunch of their new/old skool "Klunker" model bikes all the way to Fairfax to shoot video on Repack. I ran into them in town and joined the expedition. They stopped off at a thrift store to acquire the appropriate costumes.

    Took this photo yesterday, but it could easily have been from 40 years ago.

    That's cool. Their design looks really fun and the price is reasonable.

    Solid Klunk

    Lets see your klunkers-img_0206.jpg
    I hope this counts... Took a 70's huffy frame and gave it a new life with nothing original to the bike. I really love as a cruiser. It is solid and can handle more than I ever expected from it.

    yeah I took about 1.5 inch's off the lower chain stays. They we're crushed from years of over tightening of the kickstand. I wanted to pull the rear under me so I could climb off the saddle and still hook up well.

    Lets see your klunkers-image.jpgMy son and I found this for six bucks at a local tag sale. A little paint, grease, and rust removal and the klunker is on the road for 12 bucks! Lugged steel, coaster brake, and all fun. The best part was doing it together!

    His seller name is captainsweetroll, and the bars are listed as mr ticks bars. He has a set of bars on there now, but not what you are looking for. Send him a note on ebay, he'll get back to you pretty quick, thats how I got mine. They come raw steel, you paint or powder coat yourself.

    I wanted to add a couple pictures of my Trek cruiser. The bike has a seven speed rear hub, and landing gear forks, mr. ticks handlebars. I had the bike powder coated orange. Thanks for looking, Dave.

    Agree. What a huge honor for them to be graced with your presence and company. Their friends back in Washington will never believe that they met the original founder of organized mountain bike racing.

    Looks to be a Schwinn speedster, I'd pass. Think it'll be pretty cramped in the cockpit and not really traditional balloon tire klunker material as they were sold with road wheels IIRC.

    I got this thing in a trade a few years ago. 90s cruiser of unknown origin. It was matte black and when I stripped the paint I found it had some metallic orange underneath. I left some at the joints because I thought it left a cool fauxtina.

    Thanks a lot! The disc is on there, and the mount ready to be welded on, but not in operation yet. Should be done this week. Use that one for commuting.

    This bike is so wrong, it's absolutely perfect! Well done. Hands down my favorite bike in this thread. Hope you shred the heck out of it. Looks like fun.

    How about an original 1938 Larkspur Canyon Gang bomber? This was raced and ridden for many years by Rob Stewart in Repack races. Morrow, skip tooth, Cook Brother's fork, Torrington bars, and a cantilever frame.

    thanks! it's basically a stock Transition Klunker, I switched handlebars, crankset + pedals, saddle and front tire. oh, and I switched the original hub interiors to that of a shimano cb110 and converted to loose ball bearings (removed the bearing cages and added a couple of balls, almost double now)

    That is a cool OG klunk there CK! I gather now there are more klunkers today then there were back in the beginning. Perhaps?

    Been working on this one, made the frame myself from scratch. I have a thread on Rat Rod bikes if you're really bored....

    Hey Rev,

    Hmm, guess I was a little bored this morning, but that build is pretty damn cool, she's also pretty easy on the eyes. Just wanted to give you props, good work and ride/klunk on
