Hey, here is my great big tall bike.

 I was given lots of parts of bicycles and as as none of them were any good or complete I decided to uses up all the parts that I could to make something beautiful.

I used two mountain bike frames and an extra sets of forks ( three in total) and a bmx back wheel.

I made it up as I went along and it was lots of fun.

I used an arc welder (stick welder) which is not ideal for bike frames but if you don't mind burning a few holes into the frames then it is ok;  a Mig or acetylene welder would be easy peasy.

My welding is not so good so I jumped around on the frame before riding the bike to make sure that it was safe.

It rides like a dream.

The first step shows everything in an animation form ( this is also in the film) and then the subsequent steps show more detail.

Here is the video ( which is essentially someone riding the bike around in circles for 1 minute and eight seconds); enjoy.

Step 1:

If you were too busy to watch the film then here is a quick animation.

<p>What a great idea, I have a few scrap frames from kids BMX bikes. They are way too small to be any use, but, some cutting and welding could make something 'weird'</p>
Love the animation - you ought to write another instructable on how you made it.
Thank you Kiteman; it's just stop frame animation.
Still, I'm sure it would be popular. <br>
+1. Absolutely. Show us how you did it.
The animation is very effective.
Thanks man.
cool bike like the design looks like lots of fun
Thanks GreenHatNRG, it's a scream to ride.
I,ve been trying to work out a cool tall bike design to use up some of my old bike parts. I think this might be it. Great work and great i'ble. Thanks.
Thanks; post up a picture if you do.
Clever and original design solution.
Hola Rimar2000,<br> <br> Gracias por los lindos comentarios.
Very nice, and I enjoyed the video a lot. It was the perfect balance of showing the bike clearly and fun!
Dear Unigamer,<br> <br> Thanks for the feedback, I'm glad that you liked it.
