    The "Butt" Seat is Not Cool. "But", I am 57 years old and 300 pounds. I'd rather have a Banana Seat with a Hi-Rise Sissy Bar. "But", the bike is a rider for exercise... "I live on an old Country Road". And, the Truckers like to run you in the Ditch."I Need To Dive Off Real Quick". Plus, this "Butt" Seat is more comfortable on My Old Fat "Butt". LoL... And, "The Bike is more Controllable".

    It's a long ways to the Pavement... "My Friend"


    So, Please try to Judge the Bike with the Seat of "Your Choice". Thanks !!!

    Looks good. I hadn't seen a Monark style fork for a 20" wheel before.
    Swapping my 24" front wheel for a 20" made my bike steer quicker too.

    Like Spanky says: "AND HOW" much quicker !!!

    I had to turn the Wheel Mounts upside down, and Switch sides. "It was an Enigma" because, the Steering Tube was so Tall... "It took forever to solve the problem" Argh !!! :eek:

    "But it was so Comfortable" Anyways,

    I was just trying to go against the Grain.
    "As Usual Being Myself"... LoL :crazy:

    The high mounted fenders give the Hyper a bit of a scrambler appearance. Good thinking.

    Had to raise the rear Fender to the upper mount, for Tire clearance. The front Fender is mounted where it goes on the Forks. *Scrambler* I Like That. But, I hate this Frame... "Looking for a Vintage 26" at Goodwill, Yard Sales, and Flea Markets." The chrome can be all rusted out. As long as the paint is decent... Thanks!

    Why do you hate that frame? It looks like a Dyno and the price was right.

    Not enough clearance for the Oversized Rear Tire. Had to put Lug Nuts on the inside of Axle. If one side rubs, the other side doesn't. "I can get it centered", but It takes "Forever". Argh... :headbang:
