    I cut the other one rather hastily and now realize I should have done it differently. Found the above one on the parts wall and decided to go with it. No cutting necessary :lol:

    I have no idea where I'm going with this :roll:

    I'm going to convert the Scrambler to a muscle bike. I will be using the banana seat off of the Buzz Bike.
    Here are the tires I think I'm going with...

    "What's that?" you ask. It's a rack I made a long time ago for growing cucumbers. I found it stashed behind the shed. I no longer grow cucumbers.

    You now ask "What's it have to do with this bike?"

    Wait and see :D

    It was made of conduit. It's now my sissy bar. I've painted it black.

    I really didn't want to try and imitate chrome on the sissy bar so I painted it black. Thought it might look ok as the forks are black. Didn't like it so I repainted it aluminum.

    Also made brackets to hold this tag

    No t-shirt but these cool pedals.

    I decided to use the 26" fork off of this Collegiate. The fork tube was too long so I cut some out and welded it back together.

    Is it the colors? The direction I've ended up going in isn't one I would choose if I were to be riding the bike but somehow I ended up here none the less.

    moparmayhem93... no offense taken. I'm kinda going for an over the top look for this. Don't know how else to explain it.

    TheFlyingDingo...I'm pretty sure they are painted. They are just too blue to be anodized.

    Tonight I started painting the handlebars "aluminum" to match the sissy bar.

    Today I bought some grips.
