    Hey folks, as my other build is pretty much done, I figured I'd build a 20" muscle bike. In the depths of my shed, I've an old Bratz bike which should suffice for a frame. Kind of a protest build, as, let's be frank, no way in heck a cheapo stingray copy frame may compete against a frame built from scratch bike! I think it should be in the first category, but at least some will be happy as its shiny and sorta metal flake! Bah Humbug, time to get started!

    I'm thinking that the longer forks look better, esp' for taller people.[​IMG] t

    Lost daylight, so I sneaked it inside for a moment! [​IMG] Not 100% sure on anything, but the riding position sure is nice with those tall apes!

    I really like that spoked set. A cool lacing pattern.

    Tried some shorter bars, they kinds draw too much attention to the longer forks, I think it needs the taller apes to keep a balanced look.[​IMG]

    Funny how much smaller the front wheel now looks, even in, um, silhouette.
