Very clever saddle.
I think that fork gives the bike a certain tough look.
I agree. I won't add a front fender. I forgot to mention that I made the front fork with parts from a mangled Monark clone and a chrome mountain...
I could call it finished now, but I'm still ruminating about:
- a taillight
- a fender or two
- a more "Schwinn-like" chainwheel,...
Got up early this morning and stole some time to mount the banana seat. Look closely and you'll see a green contrasting seat bracket.
It's Duplicolor Vinyl & Fabric specialty coating. I've used their black before. I have to admit that it rubs off a bit with use. We'll see how...
I couldn't decide which seat to use, so I used science: the eenie, meenie, mynie mo process, and this saddle won:
I did some patching...
I'm guessing more like 80 mpg. These cheap Chinese two-strokes are not exactly fine tuned. They are fun, though.
You were right as guessing the seat would be toast. It even has the same color and texture. That little bike will thank you for saving it.
Ratters and internal combustion engines go together like coffee and donuts (not wine and brie, those folks ride e-bikes.)
I have a couple of pics...
I really like the idea of using a lightweight mountain bike frame as a basis for a muscle bike. I'll watch this with great interest.
That cool little bike is gonna get even cooler. Looking forward to the transformation.
It's a beauty. Sweet and simple.
WOW! Beautiful frame.
I'm being good.
They both look cool. I'd say whatever is more rideable.
Dig the red line tires. I'm partial toward Cranbrooks. I've motorized a bunch of them.
Still waiting for my red vinyl spray for the banana seat. The krate pedals go on tomorrow.
