    I'll be using this 91 Westport frame, simply because it isn't worth much. You'll all see why later.

    Not exactly, I do have to cut off the extra seat post though. And if I go with disc brakes I'll have to do a little welding, other than that it's pretty much just bolts and screws.

    Why yes, that is a 20" wheel on back.

    It'll all make sense in due time.
