The Sportsman started as a worksman m2600 frame used in some factory or something. I came up with the plan to build sort of a throwback to an 80s bmx. I don't really have a stockpile of parts so I used parts that are readily available to most of us, but remind me of what was cool back in the day. I feel the name fits, it's like if worksman decided to build a bmx inspired bike for dad to ride around with jr.
Here's the build

Very nice! Is that frame larger/taller than a standard cruiser frame?

the top tube is a little higher than a standard worksman inb at the seat, but that's about it. everything else is in the same location.
