    POISON APPLE: '79 Schwinn Fair Lady Trike

    I think a banana seat and a leaned back seat post would be a nice touch and slide you back on the trike a bit. Looking good!

    My version of a 26” muscle bike

    It was a lucky solution to having no stay to attach the brake. Copper tubing and a maple wood center which helped strengthen the tubing. I may have a steel one made up eventually.

    My version of a 26” muscle bike

    Very. Luckily no rub. No seat stay and skinny 26” tires just made the fit. There is a ride video. Very comfortable.

    My version of a 26” muscle bike

    Thank you much! I feel like it’s a first. I haven’t ever seen another. It was a solution to creating a 26 inch muscle bike out a 16 inch frame. Cut away a rusted out frame stay to accommodate the 26 inch tire. Chose to not weld a new stay in, so I could stay in the class one build in the 2019...

    Yes that is a brake mount under the seat! And I prefer just water and mousse on the seat. Here is a close up.

    I use it to clean lots of things. Just the right abrasion.

    Try magic erasers and water and with bar keepers friend. . Best bet to clean up and not visibly scratch the plastic.

    CLASS 1 VOTE HERE!!!! - CLASS 1 FINISHED BIKE PHOTOS BELOW POLL

    And And where was your build? Those who can do. Those who can’t, criticize! You could have been a little more creative with your words, since you didn’t come up with a bike build. But I figure a bike build from you would be as wack as your criticism here.

    Distracting yourself instead of hawking these polls

    Window repair and repaint. Total remodel. The build off was a small distraction from the work I’ve been doing on this house. Been away from my wife for many months. Finishing the bike build was a small but needed victory. Gotta have some fun. 1945 brick house.

    Thanks for following @kingfish254. Yours was great as well to watch. I had a lot of fun and I am proud of it. Photos are deceiving, though when next to a person the scale changes. I should have stated more that it was a 26” bike. This is my first build-off and my second bike built from parts...
