I recently picked up a complete swingbike frame off E bay. I had another swingbike frame in the works but the lower frame had to be built from scratch. A friend of a friend was doing the welding job. We made some good progress on the upper frame but the lower frame is still in pieces and it has not been touched in a few years. My friend is in the process of getting married, getting his house fixed up to go on the market, etc, etc. So long story short my first swingbike project has been shelved. So I find a complete swingbike frame on E bay for a good buy it now price so I jumped on it. I already have most of the parts to complete the bike so it should be a quick easy build. From what I saw in the pictures the bike will need a seat post then stripped, repainted and re assembled. Well once I got the frame I found a problem. The lower frame threads are stripped. I planned to cut off a fork tube from a donor fork but the inside diameter is different. I did find a piece of tubing which will work but it is not threaded. I am off work Tuesday May 28 so this is the day I am going to try to get my new piece of tubing cut and threaded which will be the key to getting this bike back on the road. My friend will be able to make a seat post out of the stock I picked up at Menards. It will be a pretty simple task. I have a bunch of parts coming in the mail. I purchased a kickstand, new headset and a gooseneck wedge to use on the seat post. I just got my new decals and hand grips. The chain ring guard is in pretty rough shape but I think I can straighten it a little then paint it black. The bike will be yellow when it is all done. Here are some pictures of what I have started with and how it looks as of today May 24. How I received the bike from E bay. Here it is today after a complete disassemble. Here's the lower frame thread damage. Here are a bunch of NOS and slightly used parts I have accumulated over the years.
