Gongey’s BlogDescribing the Indescribable World of The Gongey

All things Gongey

A Gongey is a special being. Having been created in the fiery furnaces of hell...wait...let me start over.
Back when collars were huge and pants were in the shape of bells I was born. The year was 1977. After 10 long months of gestation I was ready to join the world and make my contribution.
This blog is a record of my life. Good, bad and generally mundane!

After hours upon hours of toil, sweat, blood and tears the bike is finally done!  I still have to get the back brakes working and tighten up the front chain.  But all in all it works pretty sweet!

I tested it with my 2nd cousin(I will refer to him as “the engine”).  Hot off the welder, I took the bike down from the work table.  After a quick inspection of the welds and a little cooling time, the engine and I took the bike for a “test flight”.  I boldly sat down on the captains seat(front seat), and the engine took his place.  A little wobbly at first, we soon got the jist of riding tandem.  I courageously had the idea to take the bike on a slight hill by my hangar(house).  We reached the base of our high altitude climb, i kicked the engine(and told him to start pedaling), and away we went.  That hill was a breeze!  Next time I will try pedaling and see if it’s any easier!  🙂

With a little tweaking to the brakes and the gears this bike will be pretty sweet!  Even with half the gears working you can haul butt! 

The bike is a mixture of 3 different bikes; a schwinn, murray and a GT.  When I get another bug up my butt I will paint it.  But for now enjoy the splendor!
