These Build-Offs sure have a tendency to make time go fast. Another quick three months.
Started out with an old Schwinn Traveler using the frame, handlebar stem, fork and headset. Working with the tall frame set the direction of the overall design and frame modifications. Most other parts came from a couple Schwinn Varsities that I parted out to build an over-sized and over-weight quadbike about ten years ago. These parts are slowly finding their way back to rolling on two wheels. My initial thoughts were to build something more like a stretched board-tracker. A relatively early switch to different handlebars changed the build direction. As I mentioned in the build thread, that switch seemed to determined other choices like color, tires and, throwing as much chrome as I had at it. Really enjoyed this build and being part of the Build-Off.
