    OK so i am going a different route with my build off entry for the winter build off.
    i recently parted out a 24 inch girls columbia tank bike and im thinking of using that exact frame for my build off entry.this is my second build off so if i don't follow the rules feel free tot ell me and i will correct the problem.

    im gonna run a 20x 3 rear tire and 26 inch forks with a standard 20 inch wheel on front.
    gonna try to paint it black and purple and intertwine twisted sister symbols for bars etc'
    we shall see what i come up with.
    my starting point fresh from the junk pile

    man i love all those bands too im a huge hendrix fan as well.
    i was raised in he 80's but i do love some 60's and 70's rock as well,
    pretty much anything if it sounds good i will listen to it. but nothing can compere to the classics.
    that's kinda what this build is about i loved twisted sister ever since i watched their first video(i believe it was)
    which was were not gonna take it and saw the guy that played nedermeyer as the teacher in the i wanna rock video i just loved them ever since
    i hope this build captures all that glamor, flash, and carefree attitude the early days used to be about.
    plus they were really on the dare to be different side another reason i went with the girls frame it fits perfectly
    thanks for posting

    so im thinking of modding this frame by twisting the front half upside down and leaving the back half as girls bike
    im just not sure how i will do it but im thinking of doing the twist in the middle of the down tube bars to give it a different look.
    anyone have any ideas how such a mod would be done? i'm thinking of hacking the frame at the tubes and just flipping the front half upside down but not sure yet

    yeah i was thinking that
    i'm gonna call a few places and see what i can figure out.
    i am thinking a half men/half ladies design style so it fits the theme a little better.
    more updates soon

    slight change of plans on the frame
    guitarlcarl gave me an idea on the frame i'm gonna do
    its a more simpler idea and structurally won't affect the frame at all
    i will post pics and updates on the progress

    yw man
    im actually gonna attempt to use some old brake cables i have and see what i come up with.
    i plan on filing and shaping the filler to look like it is twisted
    then im gonna attempt pink on the inside and black outside.
    another lil detail im considering is painting the rims in black with pink spokes or maybe find a set like this
    more updates soon

    p.s. twisted sisterrrrr:rockout:

    ok i found a problem im hoping isn't too bad
    when i was working on the wire on the frame i found a severely rusted spot on one of the tubes where it connects to the head tube.
    so i am soaking the area in vinegar to remove all the rust and gonna see what it looks like.
    if it's bad is there a frame change allowed?
    i don't wanna change the frame but i don't feel safe riding a bike with rusted out frame parts on the head tube.
    sorry bout asking questions i just wanna make sure i can stay in on this

    I remember the rules said you're allowed one frame change. but even if it didnt I'm sure this early into the challenge no on would care.
