    I cant find my original build thread... but it doesn't matter. After consulting my wallet, my better half and also getting a inspiration, my build is going a completely different way. I'm going to build it on much more of a budget with more parts that I already have on hand. The Urban Klunker idea is completely out of the window. The new project will definitely be more "Rat" than the klunker I had in mind.

    The only thing that is remaining the same is the frame. I'm using a large Worksman cruiser frame. It was powder coated black before I purchased it and that will be staying. The idea now will be to build a 26" Sting-Ray/Pig Bike.

    I picked this crank & chainwheel up at the Long Beach Cycle Swap last weekend for $20.
