Hey very cool! I found a "Buzz Bike" at the local dump - here is pic of it in my vise. The neck broke when I tried to get handlebars off, the bars broke too, but frame is in OK shape - little pitted in spots - It was ROUGH, this is bike I am building right now - went for purple frame and had to chop neck top & bottom to fit some tripple-trees - WISH I had them cool wheels!

sounds like a good plan. im actually thinking about using the banana seat on a straightbar higgins im building (i got the idea from seeing hooch's "stubby" in the gallery). i have another banana seat for the musclebike, its all squared off/ribbed, but it needs recovering. thats where brian (tempe-terror) comes in.

nugenhipsta are there any clearance issues with the fat tires or do they fit ok?

Kingplinker you need to start a build thread for yours. Anxious to see both of these done.

the rear is fine, and only a tiny bit rubs on the front tire. ill take care of that with the angle grinder- not too much, just a little bit off the side...

I dig that type of frame--what do you call it anyway?
it's a 70's western flyer musclebike frame

Actually, what I meant was the general shape of the frame--not quite a diamond, definitely not a cantilever. There's Ralieghs, AMF's & some other muscle bikes w/similar lines. I'd love to find a 26" frame like that.

that Buzz Bike chainguard is BADAZZZZ!!! I want one!!!
