    Started with one of these frames, cut and laid down the seat post, had to fill in the gap in
    front of the post with a bit of scrap tube.

    Broke up the pink with red grips and pin strips, also note the 15 scrip on the basket.

    Best comment she gets is when people ask her where she bought her bike and she tells them
    I didn't buy it, Dad made if for me! And doesn't that make her old man stoked!

    Hi Folks,

    Thanks yeah she is happy with her new wheels, KJV on the car she has an older
    sister who has already asked the car question!

    aka_locojoe here is a pic of my other recent build the Vwcycle did the same
    with the seat post cut a small v low at the bottom of the back of the tube and
    bent it back. Had to fill in the gap at the top front with a bit of scrap tube,
    worked out well, bonus you can have the seat lower to the ground but still a
    decent length from the pedals.
