I decided to build a bike and some thing to haul the grandkids around and figured why not have fun with it. So I got the idea to give it a taxi theme yellow paint checkerboard the whole works. Starting point is the same as last year a mid to late 50's lady's rollfast.I also bought a 2 kid hauler at the flea market for the grandkids.
Will be doing a gender bend and a small stretch not exactly sure what I'm going to do with the hauler yet but have an idea in my head just not yet.
My starting point small tire just so it will stand up.

I've been kicking around a similar idea for my kids. My youngest is 6 months and I want him to ride along by the end of summer.
I'll enjoy watching your progress!

Was able to get some work done today between rain showers. Got the spacers cut out of a different frame and connected with the top part of the tail section fit inside of it perfectly.
