    53' Lincoln, we're gonna call it a "Pig Bike"
    That's what they did in the late 50's and early 60's
    modify their bikes and freak out all the adults...

    Oil the chain and call it done, that's got the look already.

    Cant wait to see where you take it.

    That bike has a cool attitude just as is sits! Of course it also looks impossible for an adult to ride like it is. This should be fun to watch.

    Well, crap. Now I wanna build that bike, the way it sits, on a 26" frame.

    Does that seat have a rear support, or just the seattube?

    It is a springer polo but it needs a sissy bar to support the rear. I have one but I may do something radical and cut the seat in half...

    Oh I've ridden it but I look like a circus bear on it.
