DIY has always been a kiwi thing. now combine that with a bit of balls out and shanty town-ness you end up with good ol’ tom making a frankenstein gt pulse.
And AFTER-AFTER pictures
we let you decide on the whole thing.
it’s super mega rad in flesh. don’t worry we re-dish that wheel and bleed the brake to function a little
Ideas for Skull Track 2012 in the works.
Quick post, just a few photos taken around the shop, shot on my film camera.
After seeing Justin’s new crazy Cyclops I thought I would post this photo of my friend in Canada’s own Cyclops with crazy cloud style paint job.
Just scored this off Grant — a crazy custom hand built Cyclops frame by Canadian builder Mike Mulholland.
Mulholland built this frame for Canadian Olympic Track Sprinter Jim Fisher for the 1999 Pan American Games.
Check the custom double chain and seat stays!
Now I need to figure out what parts to put on it.
How should I build it? Opinions welcome!
A few weeks ago I picked up a Masi SS Cross Bike to commute and have a bit of fun on. It was a super nice day today in Auckland so I headed out to explore some of the parks around the city.
I also recently picked up a new T-Level Bag from Woody to replace my neck breaking SeaLine. The new T-Level bag is super comfortable and I heard its the same model Skulls rides with so I new it had to be of rad quality.

A quick photo I shot of Louis Bolter doing a Tooth on the Slime Green Zombie ramp that is currently sitting down the bike of T.Whites.
What do you do when your track bike is so pimp that you couldn’t even consider locking it up on the streets of London.
I decided to build a beautiful beater.
I got this Maeda track frame on ebay, it was pretty beat up with a big dent in the top tube and both chainstays cracked. I took it to ted who tigged it up for some Gin and it was ready for more shredding.
Heres the run down.

It rides sweet and hasn’t got any toe overlap!
I flew a plane last weekend
We got into the plane and the instructor was asking me what all the instruments did, in his words “you must have studied and know what they all do” I felt my collar tighten and started making it up. I guessed my way though that part.
Funny photo of Ace I took today down at Tole St
An updated photo of the Dirt Tracker, with the polished oil tank and chain installed. I also started work on the electrics. Getting there, slowly.
