    Good to have ya on board! Until I got those pics from ya, I assumed the flightliners were just a standard cantilever frame with a single top bar... Can't wait to see what you do with this!

    well, the ratty saddle didnt look right for this. I'll try it on the Space Hog! Cut down some old bars and threw the grips on with a diff. seat... shifter may or may not stay...perhaps some racks..bigger, cooler front sprocket.. :mrgreen:

    That looks great. Are those 26" wheels or larger? Try steel wooling off the Kalin on the handlebars.

    Looks good so far. When I picture a 'Space Bike', I envision skinny tires also. A 3 speed huh? Is one of the speeds 'Ludicrous'? :D
