    sɪmˈpatɪkəʊ/
    adjective
    (of a person) likeable and easy to get on with.
    "the inspector was a charming man, so simpatico
    -having or characterized by shared attributes or interests; compatible.
    "a simpatico relationship"

    The name for this build is Simpatico,and it comes from my fave Mexican beer back in the days.

    This was #12 entry idea,but never even started,I never seem to find the time,I believe I have wiped out on 3-4 entries.
    So I am determined to actually try to start and finish.
    My work is overloaded,but it is time to start making time.
    I have all the parts in boxes around somewhere.
    So the deal is finish it or start selling all my parts and bikes...

    The donar frame. A 24" electric bike.

    I will be running 26" rims on this. So I will have to started by extending the rear .[​IMG]
    I will have to shorten the stem and even the bottom bar,at this point,to much space along the top bar.
    Last year I was stuck on what frame to use. Maybe I could even try to gel 2 frames together.
    Will junkpile dive and find all the parts etc later.

    Been fiddling and mind changing. I am trying to fit the tank so it suits the frame. But might end up making a whole new tank...:39:;)

    Well it is June and now it is the time to start...
    I quit a few jobs,now I have the time to build.
    I have spent the last few days,cleaning out the workshop and work area...
    Some new parts have arrived. Was able to get my hands on not 1 but 2 quadrant levers. One is a 3speed and the wissner is a 4 speed.[​IMG]

    You n me both. Maybe I should pass it on to you. I need to buckle down and make my mind up... I need to completely reconstruct the frame.
