    I built this for a friend so he could ride with me, his only requirement, "Big fat twenty inch tires."
    I thought about paint colour and couldn't get past flat black it's like an addiction.
    The banana seat I have had since I was a kid waiting to find the right project, this bike was screaming for it.
    For the tank I did my first attempt at scallops. The tank will eventually get silver pin stripping.
    I love 3pcs cranks. My friend has some DK iron cross pedals to put on them.
    Where I live there is nowhere to buy ape hangers so I made my own version from an old set of bent BMX bars. These will be upgraded to 15" apes if I can ever find some for cheap.
    Over the winter the seat tube that extends below the top tube will be removed as will the spider web.
    I wonder if a fat stingray wheel and tire will fit one of these?
    I should have taken build pictures and done this as my RRBBO3 bike since I was able to complete this while my build off bike sat and waited for parts.

    Thanks guys! I haven't had it for a real ride yet but it did get a couple pedal strokes through my living room on it with some old pedals I had laying around. It feels bigger than it did with the stock seat, with the banana it seats you almost on top of the back tire. I will get some riding pics of my buddy when we take it out for it's maiden voyage.
