    This Huffy started out out as just a frame I received from Kevintothej. I knew it had potential, and I wanted to create a certain look. I remembered about a chop that someone did, and honestly I had to dig around for it.
    It was a aka_locojoe chop. So with my limited welding skills, I went for it. It came out better than I hoped! I didn't drop it as low as to keep it a subtle look. I love it!
    I also knew I wanted truss rods, so I found stainless brackets that Chad (slowriderz) sells. These are perfect! A little tweaking and they were mounted up.
    This bike fought me the whole way, but in the end I feel good about the result!
    All in all, this bike encompasses the vibe I wanted.

    I'm not entirely sure how to do a chop,guess I'll have to hit the archives.
