    I've had this half OCC/half Cranbrook sitting around for quite a while. I've also wanted a stupid low chopper for a long time.
    I'm going for a penny theme here. I don't have and set drawings, it's just kinda falling out of my head as I go.

    That's a 190/30 Avon Gangster on the OCC rim. :shock: Still waiting for my 5 speed freewheel to show up cus that babies FAT!

    Having the first day of the build-off off is priceless. :lol:

    That's a moped wheel with a 20x2.125 slick on. I think I might have gone too low. :lol: :shock:

    Also scored these 3" pennies for a wheel insert and headbadge.

    It looks low enough but is it long enough? Hope your not too tall. Your off to a great start though. Now I gotta get started.

    It's mildly cramped but not to a fault. Safe storage is an issue for me and the things already almost 8 ft long. :shock: :shock: :lol:

    The original Commander Cody version is what I was listening to when I dubbed the name, but All is one of my FAVORITES. I got to see them a couple times in the 90's. Great band great show.

    After seeing how great they looked on "50 years" I couldn't not! Plus I got hooked up with that one. There's no way on earth I'd buy a tire that expensive for a bicycle. :lol: :lol: Avon doesn't know cheap!

    I made a little more progress yesterday. Got the crank and seat mounted. I'm obviously recovering the hideous occ original and I think I'll alter the position a bit, but it's on there. Depending on Fedex, This beast might be rideable by the end of the weekend! :shock:

    I was so excited to start and wound up with the day off. I sprung from bed at 7 am beaming (not sure the girl was thrilled about that. :lol: ) Then it all just poured out! :lol:
