    I came across this, viewtopic.php?f=21&t=44358, that looked so fun and unique, I've been wanting to try it. So, I got a frame from a neighbor for free, and built this bike one hundred percent with parts that I already had in my shop. It's so cool, it's now my new daily rider. It only took me a few hours, and I really like it.

    This has been so cool in my opinion, I already have plans to do another one with a second frame that I've got.

    Really cool execution!

    I'm supposed to be getting a girls bike today, sight unseen. This might be my direction for it!

    Thanks for posting!

    Do you mind showing some pictures of how you did the bottom bracket?

    I've been planning on using a couple of frames to flip one too. Thanks.

    BTW, I like your bike! :D

    This is really cool! I'm still pretty green, so, I haven't seen this done before. It seems like it's a lot easier to find old ladies frames in my area...needless to say my eyes have been opened to some new possibilities! lol
