This is my entry into the "Underrated Rat Buildoff" happening in the build challenge section. Please comment here.
My entry is a 50 something girls Monark built Speed O King. All original as far as I can tell. I have a set of Carlisle lightning tires that were on the bike when I got it.
As it sits right now:

I confess that I had contemplated building a tall bike or a burrito from some old girls frames, but then I remembered this one tucked away in the corner.

Ran into some disassembly problems that I finally got sorted out today.
Fender bolt head snapped off:

Got that drilled out for an easy out.

And the usual stuck fork. I got some penetrant in through the hole I drilled and got the stem bolt loose without snapping it off. Forks gave up pretty easy after that.
