well here is a little background. I saw this thread awhile back and thought "ohh this will be fun" had a general idea in mind of cutting a frame up and changing the geometry and a few other little details, but the over all idea I had was a little childish and to be honest I didn't have the guts to completely chop a frame with out knowing the end result would be good. So i began to think "well I have this bike I need to restore" but whats the fun in that... post a couple pictures of it getting repainted and new parts that we all know I probably spent way to much money on. on top of it that bike is a girls bike... so then I was about to give up and not enter when I had a bunch of brilliant idea pop into my head. now what bike to use?? well I bought a bike on here about two months ago. got super excited, then the shipping took FOREVER! (like Ham Porter's voice in The Sandlot) and when it finally arrived, nearly a month later , I absolutely hated it! the pedals were the wrong size, screws and nuts were missing, the seat didn't even fit the seat post, and to top it all off the thing weighs more then my car! I was furious . I nearly put the bike on craigslist for the first person that could come pick it up. but the frame has a good look so why not rebuild it. so now after that extremely long intro here is the bike I will be rebuilding. plans are to stretch it out a little and lower it a bit. I have a few ideas of what i want to do with the rear end but you know how those ideas end up when you try to put them to action so I wont quite share all my intentions yet... so now I'm on the hunt for some old seat springs. Just need the rear springs but will take what I can get. the bigger the better. and cheap! please let me know if you have any you're willing to part with or see any for sale and sorry if I offended anyone doing a basic restoration or building a girls bike .
