    I built this bike using a 26" aluminum OP Cruiser frame. Then, I dismantled it and scrapped it for parts. The first time I dumped it in the driveway and got my foot twisted & stuck in between the rear tire, the seat post tube and, the ground. With the bike on top of me for 3 hours until my neighbor came home from work. How Humiliating...
    "You really should'nt be sitting up while riding a 26" bike". LoL !

    Nice change. That spring between the shift cable and the bellcrank(shift linkage) probably doesn't shift too well.

    The OP frame has a very nice rake to it. Good job.

    If that seat was a little longer it would have been a really nice bike.
