    The Green Machine is done. A little old school, a little rat, a little military all mixed in. We put cut down an old set of handlebars and wrapped them with tape. Then I made a pair of leather grips, but my son is thinking that maybe some ape hangers may not look to bad on it. It's an old discarded NEXT bmx type frame that accepted the big Nirve tires pretty nicely. The forks are from a x-games bike with the legs wrapped. We had fun building this and it is a blast to ride.

    Thanks for the kind words. He does love it and it does look really good with the big tires on it. It does look like a tank bike. Very tough!
