    Re: MegaPixieRay RRBBO8 (Welding in new Top Tubes)

    The top tubes definitely look better parallel.
    I am digging the changes you're making to this beast.

    I have to agree also that it does look better parallel too.

    Some ideas I have...

    The tail light is for my motorized Schwinn but the rest is up for grabs in using if I choose to. What do some of you think about a short rack in the back?

    I think these skulls in the end of the tubes will fit the bill. If these are the ones I believe they are they have blue LED eyes in them.

    I like the rack but I'd paint it the frame color or chrome it.

    It's cool that you have a rack that is the right scale for those tires. It's hard to give an opinion looks wise though without seeing how it works with the whole bike. Can you post a pic of the whole bike with the rack.

    The skull lights are a great idea!

    Here is a full on side shot showing the rack...

    Replaced the Nanner seat springs to one more suiting to the build. By doing this I may not be able to install the rack... :cry:

    It is looking good!
    I like the idea of the rack, but I think it needs to be level rather than sloped forward...

    Love how the tubes turned out.

    Luke.

    Nanner seat done, except for paints and recovering it. I cut and welded the seat post so that it is a set back post, that way I could attach the back part of the seat. The welding looks a little crappy partly because I am not that good at it yet with this welder, but also because it splatters allot.

    Here is the seat fully mounted, still needs a little fine tuning and the cover put back on.

    Nice work. Looks like the springs worked pretty good.
