    Hello everyone! Whilst building my class 2 build: Brat attitude, I realized I'd been thinking of an old Huffy Thunder Road, where's it's original loaf seat had come from. Some quick eBay shopping and I found a later frame for a good deal! It reminds me of a Schwinn Camelback or Speedster, but without the price!

    Here's the frame:[​IMG]

    Please ignore the other 'Nana, and I realize I'd need a larger rear tire to sport those BMX bars! Hoping to get seat post unstuck :)

    Some progress, og crank was cross-threaded, the vintage headset has a short stem, so I have borrowed one temporarily, still, I like the riding position a lot, I wonder if it'll do sweet jumps?

    Motocross-style grips seemed about right:[​IMG]
