    This bike came a long way from banana on the seat to banana seat! Great colors and loving the shiny green shag. Looks like an awwsome wheelie bike!

    Congrats on finishing this cool ride.

    Cool daddio! The thing is with this bike, it's in motion even when parked. The true sign of a real 'muscle machine' !

    Only thing missing is a ride vid with pulled wheelie....:21: Nice work :thumbsup:

    That seat really sets off an already groovy and sick chopper!
    I love the looks of this build. Classy and fun.

    7-3-17 I'm rebuilding the Lincoln. I never bonded with the banana. I put the long forks back on HeadBanger. Things I still need to do...
    Swap out the longer crank and the longer chrome kickstand. It's also not going to end up with these bars and seatpost but it actually fits me right now.[​IMG]
    You know they're never done.

    Carl.

    Sometimes, I see a bike that I can't stop staring at....This is one! I really like this look, it's unique.....adult..compact..multi-purpose. It will fit in any trunk, or back seat. You gots the "eye" for style.

    Thanks. If you went back and dug through the thread. It's kind of a cool bike. A 53' Lincoln built by Schwinn, originally a skip tooth, I found a rear cog to convert the 3 speed coaster to skippy. So that in itself is unique, a 3 speed coaster skip tooth. I'm planning on lowering it back down to it's balloon tire origins. It looked like a little motorcycle to me, so that's where I want to go with it.

    Carl.

    With a 3spd coaster, it just keeps getting better. There is quite a following for small ADULT bikes, like the Raleigh 20....I think it looks perfect the way it is.
