    It looks good! My bike build is basically a kids' bike in adult size so I can understand. Maybe it just makes you feel like a kid!!

    That's why I started doing all of this. The laws of physics only say I have to grow older, doesn't say anything about growing up.:crazy:

    Love that effect you got on the wheels....rusty old wooded wagon wheels was my first thought! And your tire selection is spot on. Definitely a "big kids" bike! (aren't we all? ;) ) Looks great overall, really impressed. Maybe you can find a rusty merry-go-round or slide at a neglected playground for your photo opp? Nice work!

    Sadly and happily the city I live in started tearing down elementary schools the day after school ended, the playgrounds went with them....But they'll all be rebuilt.

    It's about as heavy as a tank,so it should get something done.

    Like I said it's way to cool.
    I was just wondering if a nice old crate would look good on the back.Give it that old wagon look or pick up.

    I thought about that for going to get groceries,or maybe a camel back trunk.

    I'm glad you like it, it's my first attempt at a build. Gonna try to push the envelope next year.

    Or good for a beer run.
    You still have time,to find,and make doodads.
    A headlight etc.
    The bike makes me think instantly of the Model Ford-T

    I'll most likely put a box on back of some sort, I tried an old carbide lamp but it didn't look right to me.

    Cool trike. I can hear a big bell jingling as you ride up behind me laughing.

    I have to be honest, I don't know what you mean.
    But I'm glad you like it.

    You know, like a little kid on his tricycle ringing the bell and having a blast. Sorry to be cryptic.

    The world can always use one,specially on a Saturday night beer run. (Easier to balance)
