    Thought i might as well enter my Z, Since ive heard of one or two more allmost entering. I have no idea if i will be able to do what i want to before the deadline. Im probably going to sell it when im done, because that was my plan in the first place with this bike.

    So anyways, heres the bike, Awesome frame.
    (forks on wrong :D)

    The wheels, Probably going to wrap them in some kind of Fat-street tires

    The problem...last owner did something to it...no idea how
    [​IMG]
    The Color, a sweet metallic Purple (will look cleeeeean with the yellow wheels) This is my other problem, because i want to do a good job and weathers been TERRIBLE for paint

    That frame is great. Green goes good with purple too. Check out Indian Larry's Voodoo Chili. Purple tank with green flames.

    the little bend on the drop out is the problem right? if so get a BIG (at least 1' long)crescent wrench,snug it down have some one hold (or you could clamp it in a vice......just put some wood in there so you dont crush the tubing)the front of the frame and bend it back!

    Thanks!
    I have no access(unless i bring it to school-tech class) To a Vice
    So the wrench idea sounds really good right about now

    This will be a fun build. Dropouts, either a big cresent wrench or pipe wrench. No need to worry about perfect alignment.

    The Dia Compe Bulldog is a great brake. Lots of adjustment for different frames.

    I would really like to see one of these frames with a banana seat. Maybe even a 24 or 26" fork.

    I've been wanting to do something like this for a while! There's a bunch of different department-store BMX bikes that have a Stingray-inspired curved-bar frame, and I've always wondered how one would look converted with a banana seat... looking forward to seeing how this turns out...
