    If you have a heart full of napalm I suggest you visit a doctor.

    Good selection of parts coming together as always. I really like those bars. Now all you need are some wheels :mrgreen:

    You've already go the "perfect" parts for a clunker, why ruin it with the frame?

    actually I hate that frame lol
    the odd seatpost and needing paint and a couple other issues had me rethinking things
    and I decided to bite the bullet and use a sweet Schwinn middleweight frame
    a coppertone 64 tiger frame :)
    purists beware!
