Keep diaries of your 20" wheel and under build of bikes here.
heres some of the parts i got from the collest bike shop i know of
pedals..... kids person supremes.....
seat.......brooks b66(was gonna go on la cucaracha.....but didnt)
sting ray forks and truss rods.....(truss' were gonna go on my wifes typhoon but didnt look right.....i think theyre electra)
tires are 20"schwinn spitfires. got a couple of other things to take care of(like make some brackets, find some bolts, get a 16" crank and chain ring, find some bars, and get the truss' bent to flow alittle better)
might not be a 30's colson when its done but how many kids do you see riding a shrunken mead around?
and yeah............ill even post a vid of me on this beast when its ridable
well..........batteries are dead now but i did get one good mock shot of what the frame will be(if i can ever find any 1" steel tubing in this town im almost ready to buy a goodwill bike just for the stinking tubing!) forks are done along with the trusses but i still need to make the hanger bracket (sorry hooch and all those that have photoshop.....all i have is paintshop from 98 ) thanks for the comments!
forgot the pic
here it is(with obligatory shoe shot......... )
well..........finally got everything structural welded up so its a roller now(and amazingly enough itll hold all 156#'s of me so thats a good sign )! got a donor frame for some tubing today and some bars that are currently awaiting the cuttoff wheel of death soon itll be time to glaze everything up and start priming(think im gonna add a itty bitty tank to this one also)
btw..... wouldve put the shoes in the shot but i didnt want to take them off
