    OK, Im still lame.......dont do pics yet......
    But, mindtrip this: Just today I dropped the raked fork off the snowbank chrome OCC and stuck on a cheap MoZo RT20, 26"(I think) Mtn tele-fork (both forks are 1 1/8" threadless). I popped the stock OCC front wheel on, BUT, without the raked fork the wheel now will cross up the forward crankarm in a turn!! More scroungin' to do, guess I need a 20" front wheel........
    But, anyway, the fork swap was a snap, so anybody wanting to put an OCC fork on something else with 1 1/8" will do fine, and the steer stem is way longgg.
    A threadless stem with motorcycle clubman bars top the fork.
    A seatback seatpost, yet to be welded into that huge OCC post, perches an old, wide vinyl Mesinger exercise bike saddle (hey, Im 6'1" x 210ish#).
    This is still all mock-up stuff, but its kinda lookin' like a drag chopper bike, not the 'Lake Bike' I was originally thinkin'.
    Oh, and if nobody has done it yet, I think I'll call it Morph........

    What a great idea for a suspended rear!! Love leaf springs, how much do they actually "give"?

    I was confused for a bit wondering why would he put the crank on backwards, then the second photo clears it up. Cool downhill racer!!!!

    Thanx MC!
    Im a 59 yr. old grampa of 3,"goin' for the brass ring"........
    My oldest Grandson gave me the ratty OCC (Ive mentioned it before), and after some fits & starts it all of a sudden took form. Its about a $50 special as of now, and today was the first shakedown run on our 'small' hill we call 'The Wall' (because pedaling from the downhill side on the flats, thats what it looks and feels like!). You OCC guys can see what is still used and whats changed. I had NO experience with one before, but this is a hoot!
