Bike from scratch? OK. I'm new to this site. I've however decided to give a shot on creating my own bike from scratch (seriously. I've got ABSOLUTELY nothing). Now, I've go a design in the back of my head, but I need advice on how to start. What I'm looking for is some sort of tutorial or detailed instructions. My biggest problem right now is the fact that I've no idea how to create my own frame. I could use some advice as far as the way a frame is formed and welded at first. Then, what material is used for framemaking; where do I get it and how much does it cost? I have an vintage looking bike, it was my sister's so it's hardly used at all. I am about to sell it. Is it a better idea to try and convert that to what I'm looking for, or would it be cheaper to sell it (probably about 70 EU) and use the money for my project? I know I may sound like a complete noob. That is because I actually am one as far as bikes are concerned. So... help please? EDIT: So... 20 views and no replies. Maybe I should post some photos of the bike I'm refering to. Is it because I'm in the wrong section that I don't get any replies? If yes, where should it be?
