    I found this in a dumpster. I'd be willing to guess that nobody is, or will be using the same frame. It's a Fuji.It's one of those bikes that you had to smoke 500,000 Marlboro's to get. What better way to get healthy. Oh! I forgot, it FOLDS! Or should I say SWINGS.

    This is the start

    Re: <<RIDGE RUNNER MUSCLE>>

    I love the idea of smoking a bunch of cigarettes to earn enough points to get a bike that you then couldn't ride up a hill without weezing and coughing and taking another smoke break!

    Make it rat, make the deadline, I'll be watching. Good luck.

    Anyone that uses a folding bike has my attention.
    Just throw some Harley tires on it.

    I did a single speed conversion on this one about 6 years ago:

    [​IMG]

    far lighter crank
    single speed bmx freewheel
    new 1/8" chain
    new brakes
    folding pedals
    new brake levers
    new seat.

    With that paint in poor condition, I'd say it's a prime candidate for a different color.

    When you strip the bike down, don't be surprised when the crank arms weigh more than the frame. Possibly the heaviest crank set ever. ABS clad cast iron.

    Okay you could paint it in spades, diamonds, hearts, clubs. That could be cool.
    Or paint it to look like a big stack of smoldering cigarettes.

    I got a fog machine (meant for desk top bonzai or rock gardens) in SF Chinatown a few years ago that is very tiny and could be concealed somewhere.

    Very busy at work so have not had lot of time to work on bike, but this is what I have done.
    Took bike to bear frame and cut the end of the top tube.

    Cutting off the top tube? Going for a Swing Bike?

    Just add a lit match while applying that oven cleaner!!!!!!!!!!!

    Be careful and read the rules before you plan/execute a build.

    I don't know yer final plan but I believe you may have disqualified this frame.
