    That's exactly what I was going to do! But now because you said "I will worship you", I can't!.........Actually, the name rhymed, and I am planning on a DIFFERENT paint scheme, You MADE me go to "Old Roads" and look up what a phantom looks like. You don't have to worry about "worshipping me", it's not going to look like that. It's going to be an SSST (Stretched, Swoopie, Sorta Thing). :lol: 8)

    After I posted the pic, I was wondering if someone was going to ask that! Yep, spoons on the bottom cabinets, forks on the drawers, and butter knives on the upper cabinets. I can't believe you spotted that. :lol:

    I bought a "Planet Earth" MTB at a tag sale for $10, then she pointed to the other side of the yard and said "I'll throw that one (Bantam) in for another $5. I said "I guess so".

    To late now! There is a "plan". I just haven't thought of it yet. Hopefully, I didn't screw up another bike.

    That's great!

    I think the plan now is to put it back together.

    Anyway this ought to be interesting.

    Well here's plan "B". I think I'll go with this one. Let me know what you think. Right now everything is "taped" together, I haven't decicded on the actual length. So far It's been pretty simple. Two pieces of conduit, with only one bend. I haven't even used a tape measure, yet. And you can tell by some of my "tools" (yes it is sitting on a piece of firewood) that I like to keep it simple and cheap. The "curved" blue tube removed from the bike will be used for placement of the sprocket, It will match the angle of the front tube, just gotta figure out where I want the pedals. Well that's it for now, as you can see I work outside, it's 25 degrees out and we're getting some more snow today! I LOVE New England, I get to work with gloves and my hands don't sweat!

    I know it "looks" long, the pics are deceiving, remember it's only a 20 inch bike!

    Maybe these bars, not sure yet.

    NICE!!
    Firewood, I love it!
    I like the length, are you going to get that seat down low in front of the original seat tube?
