    A La Jolla or a Cranbrook is probably the perfect bike for this challenge

    So how do we get this started? Start a poll to see who'd be in?

    It might be a good one for the winter build off.

    I think the upcoming WBO is spoken for but we might be able to get it in somewhere as it's own division or class...

    I used the big box 1952 Columbia for a recient build off. I only used the frame, tank and head set. I made a single speed monster cross gravel grinder. I had a blast building it, gravel racing it (70 miles) and single track. It made a real nice and different klunker. I used 700c wheels, with 40mm tires, drop bars with MAFAC canti brakes. A lot of different bikes can be made from big box bikes.

    Yeah I wouldn't even feel a twitch of guilt cutting one of those up.

    I’d buy the red one to a new springer fork for $175
