    I love how that rear wheel is just completely filling up the rear end of that bike! The big / little wheels really show off in this build. And the matching red stripe tires really tie it together.

    Is that a 24" rear, 16" front?

    Dig the purple too! :thumbsup:

    Made them painted with apple barrel paint from Walmart and cheap small brush from Dollar tree.

    Very resourceful. I was trying to imagine where you might find a 26 inch redline tire.

    The red line tires are sweet and really pull this thing together!

    Looks great!

    The small details are what stand out in the dumpster shot. 26x20" muscle bikes can look awkward, but not yours. The nice paint, redline tires and careful fit of the fenders makes everything flow.
    -I read your build thread and I saw no cutting and welding. Am I right? No cutting or welding?

    Great use of a crutch. You should really crop that first photo before the voting gallery is created though. The bike is too far away.
