I had no plans for any more build competitions after building the Decoluxe, but when I saw that this frame was up for grabs last week from @kingfish254 , I thought why not? It's a very quirky retired Washington D.C. SmartBike, not really sure of the manufacturer.

I plan to 'get smart' about my approach to this one and keep it very simple and spend very little time and money. No eye on the prize, just have fun building.

Is it going to be a 24/20 wheel setup? Great frame for an adult rider. Really can't wait to see what you do with the seat/sissy/handlebar angles on a muscle bike.
The Smartbike had 24/20 originally, but I'm going with 20/20 only because I just picked up a set at my honey hole flea market that are going to work perfectly. It's amazing how parts show up at that flea market just when I need them!
Indeed the frame size is perfect for an adult muscle bike. It's about the size of a 20" frame but has the length of a 26" bike!
