    Im building this West Coast Chopper for my brother inlaw who is a huge Green Bay Packer fan.I allready put a 26" up front a 24" out back ,Occ forks,some bars I cut up for it and a smaller crans set.This was gonna be my BO7 bike but I might end up stretching it about 10" and that wouldnt be legal...Any way my brother inlaw has been after me to build one for him so here we go![​IMG][​IMG]

    Like I said it can change in an instant and it had to...I mocked up a chain and it went right into the chainstays so I flipped the rear section 180 degrees and it looks even better and the chain will work just right![​IMG][​IMG]

    if you find the 24" rear wheel, you can still get a 3" tire on it with a little trimmimg, and sliding the dropouts down a little bit.

    luckily I found the donor bike abandoned behind my shop with a wasted back rim,probably stolen and ditched! I did see one with the same seat post on CL for 10 bucks I might grab it since im gettin another WCC frame next week. I got some time to weld and grind the frame so now some mud ,sanding,and paint coming up next! 8) :mrgreen: [​IMG]
    MAN I NEED A BETTER CAMERA!!!
