    well i guess ill toss my hat in the ring too :mrgreen:
    had a frame sitting in the garage awaiting death at the dump so ill give it alittle(pun intended) new life.....
    this started life as a womans huffy 26" 3 speed(like the one Rat Rod picked up not to long ago). it will end up as either garbage or a ridable bike for my boy when hes tall enough. yeah...............
    heres some of the carnage ive inflicted since i got off work tonight :lol:

    I think it takes a lot more imagination to "shorten" a bike, then it does to stretch it. I like the bike, your shoes...... I'm not so sure. :roll:
    Come on "Flip" that down tube, give that "Little he/she" a wicked RAKE! 8)
