It's a C2C Duster, pretty sure it was made by Ross, it's identical to an Apollo.
Laced a 3 speed hub from a 26" All Pro bike, into a 20" rim. Salvaged my seat, front rim and tire from a mid 60's girls bike that ended up as grr-Rat-ified. Cut and spliced my handlebars from two sets of apehangers, wrap is vintage Benotto. My crazy shifter matches the angles of the handlebars and has a chicken foot on it. Seat is an old polo seat, stripped painted and padded. Used the fork from All Pro too, hand bent with my conduit bender. Paint is a Borax Dip Job, my first, done using Testors enamel over flat white. There is also a matching baseball bat, mounted horizontally to accent the wedge frame.

That's great, I didn't think I over did it, but... I can balance mine with one finger on the seat then rock side to side and the whole bike flexes like it's made of rubber.
Check the line thru my headset down to the road.
Very close to my tire, ideally only a couple inches ahead of the vertical center.
Mine is a bit behind the v centerline it but still not bad
The trick is my bends are at the end of the forks.
