    Now that I have thrown that idea out there. I have no idea which frame or look I would want to go with.
    I love the Dayton beehive springer that I have. Maybe even keep it on the 40s Huffman. Or use it with the Spaceliner? Or the Emory twin bar?
    I am still thinking of lacing up the 5 speed to a 24" rim with a brick on back.
    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.
    I have pretty clear pictures of what the sidecar or trike build would look like. I need some more thinktank time to let the 2 wheel idea morph into something clear.

    You have a beehive? No fair. :cry: I want one for my JC Higgins, but I've never even touched one.

    Look back on page 1 of this thread.
    I wonder if a Thick Brick can fit in this?

    Maybe this will be the build where I make an adult muscle bike?
    Spaceliner frame with a Dayton Beehive and Thick Bricks and my custom water ski banana seat with apes and a big ole sissy bar and a wicked stick shift.

    Don't be so sure. I have been poking around looking at older builds and it is really making me lean towards a 2 wheeled build. I will be on vacation the first two weeks of May, so I'll just have to wait and see what I feel like building when I get home. I will probably do what I did last year and just pull out all of the frames and stuff I am thinking about and lay it out in the yard and just brainstorm and wait for that Eureka moment.

    Still thinking that my build will be a two adult muscle bike.

    I am leaning towards my Spaceliner frame and even though I have a ton of Shimano stick shifts, I am thinking of using this one mounted on the bottom set of twin cantilevers.
    It would have a longer shifter off course. I think there is enough offset to clear the top set of wtwin cantilevers.
    I just need to get my SA 5 speed hub in a jig and figure a way to engineer a muscle bike shifter to shift it properly.

    If local "cool" parts availability came into play, I'd be out already. All old bikes go to scrapper and replaced with Walmart bikes since the bike shop closed around here and it's sad that I've come to be known as the "bike guy" around here, and I don't have a bunch of "cool" parts.
