    It does look pretty sweet so far and I'm sure it will just get cooler.

    24x 3 aint big nuff for "HOOCH-A-RAMA" went with a 26x3 and smaller sprocket in front..... the reason will come later :)
    yes it was close but I had an idea and it worked! I had my son pedal it fast on the bike stand and took my angle grinder and rounded the sharp edge of the tire while it was spinning :)

    This build requires at least one picture of you riding the final product and then we will be the judge of the seat fitment to your B U T T!

    wow! I really like your handlebars. They have a kinda subtle madmax-flair to it. Where did you get it off of?
