Most of us build by bolting things on, it doesn't have to be bike parts either.Ok, so I'm new here and don't want to sound like a total noob, but what actually constitutes a "build"? I do not have any experience in welding or metal working, but would like to be a part of this. I would describe my stuff more like "frankenbikes" because I try to put together new ideas from many pieces. Would something like that be considered a "build"?
I have a pretty tall Schwinn mountain bike frame, but I think it's cromo.I also doubt a list will be all inclusive enough. I would think some are obvious like the Cranbrook, others can often be determined by headbadge and Google. Do I want to build a Cranbrook style cruiser? No, I'll stick to vintage bikes for that look.
So I'm thinking of building something crazy. I'll try to find the tallest diamond frame ten speed looking thing I can, and cut it down into a BMX limo.
Back when walmart was still called Ben Franklin, Sears was the big box store.I'm wondering if a Sears Free Spirit anything (since they did FS 10 spd's and muscle bikes and who knows what else) would be considered a big box bike? Just picked up a possible project.
