    To each there own but you cant even turn the cranks a full revolution on these and I am not a fan of carpet cruisers
     
  8. Would be kinda cool if they'd throw a chopper fork on it and bring the cranks up enough to ride it.

    Resourceful and interesting, but I'm not sure what to do with one of those.

    Who looked through a bunch of their photos? There are a few of 'em actually being ridden...looks like teenagers. So it's possible, but my 40-year-old knees would sound like firecrackers.

    Still, there are some nice lines on a couple of those bikes. I'm a little scared of the seat tubes that have been shaved for tire clearance until there's nothing holding up your butt but a strip of metal.

    I built one of these in high school out of a dual suspention that had fallen off a 3 story building, it was so low that you had to use the crank of a 12" bike, it didn't turn for anything (front fork was bent out about 35 degrees) and even the tiny cranks left the pedals an inch off the ground when standing straight, but it was a head turner.

    I like it even though it would be hard to ride.
    Come to think of it, my latest build is not the best riding bike either! :wink:
