    No we had one sitting on the shelf for that someday project, I had a bunch of tubing that matches the right shape of the simplex, the only bikes that have got cut up so far have been a huffy santa fe frame and a murray mtb that I had laying around.

    Oh man I am liking this build... A LOT!

    OF course it might have something to do with me building a motorcycle themed lil rat bike a couple Buildoffs ago...

    The light bulbs are coming on.... the smell of burnt metal in the air... this is gonna be a good one!
