    I rescued this frame,, along with several 26in frames from the scrap about 15 year ago ; I decided to pull it down off the wall... & build something out of it. So, I will scrounge through all of my parts and we'll see what happens :
    So without further ado here we go on what ,,, going to call ...

    KJV, that seat is cool. Is the design stenciled on with paint? You're giving me some ideas for my future black banana on Tonka Toy....:nerd:

    @OddJob
    The banana seat, is charcoal metallic and the striping is original. The seat came off of a Murray bling bling. So did this rear tire:

    Thanks.

    I am moving fast on this one;
    I just decided to throw something together:
    While cleaning up all of the parts that are .. everywhere.

    So, I'm just throwing them together as I go. There was..
    Only two things for certain, the color. (Corvette Red), &
    The seat.
    We have been having on seasonably hot weather the past few days. Therefore,, I wanted to get the paint on.

    After studying : I decided the 16 wasn't right for the front.;
    So, will be going with a 20.
    Maybe: I will just keep this one ..used to mock up...:39:

    Also: change handlebar Style.
