Our good friends at Dime City Cycles are the official sponsor of the DO THE TON Bike of the Month Contest!

Dime City Cycles are not only generous sponsors of the site, but they are good friends and incredible supporters of our community. They've been part of our group of friends since the earliest days of DO THE TON over 10 years ago and both DTT and DCC have grown side by side over the years working to foster the garage-built community of enthusiasts.

In addition to gracing the masthead of DO THE TON for a month, Dime City Cycles will recognize the winner with:

  • A spot light on www.dimecitycycles.com
    [*]Email announcement to their many fans and customers
    [*]Announcement on Dime City Cycles social media profiles reaching thousands and thousands of fellow enthusiasts
    [*]Winner receives a prize package from DCC (DCC swag + Gift Card!)


Here are the Nomination Rules:

1. Nominate one of our members' bikes for Bike of the Month - include up to 3 flattering pictures of the bike in question. This is an opportunity to recognize someone who's bike has inspired you.

Please don't nominate your own bike - make sure you have a well detailed build thread, post up in the Show n Shine area etc. and if enough people like your bike, someone will nominate it and maybe you'll see it as our banner in an upcoming month!

The Nomination must be accompanied by the member's User Name, a link to the thread where their bike is best described (Build thread, Show n Shine etc.) and a PHOTO of the bike in question.

2. Someone seconds the nomination (please only second one nomination)

3. Member should accept the nomination - If you're nominating a bike, make sure you're in contact with the owner, that they want the bike included and they accept the nomination. The Nominee should provide some back-story on the project, especially if there is a limited build thread.

4. Bike must be in running roadworthy condition - no basket cases. I know our bikes are never really 'finished' but it should be on the road/track/dirt and rideable.

5. If a bike has been nominated in the previous month but did not win, it should not be included in the current month's contest. Wait 3 months to allow other worthy nominations and then resubmit if you like.

6. Bikes that have won in prior contests should not be included unless they have been modified significantly.

We will accept nominations for a few days till we have a good selection to a limit of 3 bikes per contest.

A poll will be set up and voting will take place for a week or so depending on timing. Whoever ends the voting period with the most votes wins :D

Thirded! I would absolutely love one of those in my garage. I think you should seriously consider making and selling them in a kit form for klutz's like me who don't know a planer from a hand saw.

Thank you so much. If you hadn’t brought it to my attention at the museum it wouldn’t have happened.
I credit both you and the original builder.

Dude seriously if you make up the plans I'll buy them off you 8)
I mostly just did it in my head as I went along. Measuring bikes, centerstands, wheel bases. I never did make a drawing on paper. Just knew what the board sizes worked out to.
It should just fit my K75 and Cherry Bombs stretch and Piglets small front tire to fit the chock with out hitting the end rail.
I will take some measurements and post them for ya.

Maybe...Theres a chance. ;). Im no expert on the matter. So, Im not sure, "how or if",

Would his addition of the heavier front end affect top speed????

Or just add a little more air to the tires?

If you can get a 360 over 110mph, you can get a 400f over 100mph without a doubt.
