    Hello all,

    This is my first time entering a build off, so I wanted to do something a little different.
    I found this ladies step thru Monarch at the Ann Arbor show and the price was right $5.00
    Here are some pictures of the parts I might use. I've been staring at it for a couple of
    weeks now, and did a little mock up. Some different wheel/tire combos, and a tank off of a
    Schwinn American. Don't know if it will have fenders yet... hmmm...

    I've seen a few flipped frame bikes (did one myself before the build off) but that frame you have makes it just right!

    Just let me add though that those tires don't fit your build... I want them!!!! (been looking for full gummies for years!)

    Looks like you have a single out of place whitewall Carlisle there. I'll take that off your hands. And the bike looks sweet too. :mrgreen:

    Yes, I like that tire/wheel combo the best. I'm going to wash them and shoot 'em with clear.
    I've always liked curvy women :D
    Gonna hold onto that lightning dart tire... I've been waiting for the right build to use it along with that Gillette slick.

    I have a frame like that, I've been holding on to for a flipped frame bike. I like how the curves come out.

    You can be sure that I will be watching how you make everything work, especially the new BB.

    Great looking so far!

    the step thru disappears when flipped. Looks like it's gonna be a wildly cool build!!

    Re: "DEVIANT" A step thru goes a step beyond...

    I've made a little progress. I cleaned and rebuilt the hubs, and found a donor frame for the bottom bracket.
    I'm not sure if I'm going to weld it on, or bolt it up. I'm also working on some bolt on rear dropouts to stretch
    and lower the rear end. I'll be giving the frame an acid bath next week sometime. Happy Memorial weekend everyone!

    If a person is going to use a ladies frame you sure picked the right one!
    Seeing your work area makes me realize how bad I need to cleanup my basement shop!!

    I'm planning on welding my BB on.

    viewtopic.php?f=67&t=57255

    we will see how that goes. Hope you take some pictures along the way of the new BB and drop outs.

    what are your plans for the seat mount?

    It's been a couple of busy weeks around here, but I'm starting to make some progress. The hubs have been rebuilt, and I shot the rims with clear coat. I had a chrome wallgoose frame laying around and cut out the crank hanger.

    Luckily, the seat tube fits over the monarch tube perfectly. :D
    [​IMG]

    I am going to attach it with some stainless self tapping screws and some type of bracket on the chainstays. I cut down the seat tube per rule #3.
    [​IMG]

    I think it worked out pretty good. Looks like two exhaust pipes, and I'm going to incorporate a headlight into the large front cutoff tube. It also gives me a place to mount a kickstand.

    Next, I need to figure out how I am going to mount the seat. I'm leaning towards the white seat with gold glitter. :D
