    I present to for your approval and viewing pleasure the Highcycle. What was once a modest Mongoose Beast , now transformed into a bicycle of epic heights. Standing about 9' tall with a wheel base of about 6' it will cruise down the street about as unnoticed as a Macy's day one man parade.

    No expense was spared so that my seat will not forget my butt! Color coordinated grips.

    Copper bar ends, as if this thing will ever get laid over on its side.

    Continuing the copper motief with license plate seamlessly edited out. ( never know where stalkers may lurk)

    Color matched bearing cups.

    It took 4 days to find the free time but I finally got the seat clamp on.

    One of the cleaner tall bike builds I have seen. Most just look like two or three stacked bikes.
    Are you giving us the bird in this photo???? :p

  12. Sweet bike! How's it ride? I bet it's like a 2 story army tank. What's it weigh?

    It rides really smooth, it's turning radius reminiscent of a big rig but other than that is awesome. I kept the stock gear ratio which turns out to be rather low but is fine, as standing up for more torque isn't the most prudent option with this ride. I'll weigh it tomorrow, I'm guessing in the neighborhood of 65lbs.
