Of course, this build is all about looking cool. But it will be ride-able (and pedal powered). I do a lot of R and D before I even put a mock-up together. I would not have progressed this far without knowing that it would be a ride-able bike. Using Schwinn 4.5" cranks will give 1/2" ground clearance at the pedals. And that's with the springer adjusted all the way down. The hardest part of this build will be figuring out how to get an OddJob Award for a shiny bike! Rats!!!
