    Went through all my junk today. It was time to CLEAN out the shed and cellar. Loaded up my utility trailer with about 20 bikes worth of junk, gotta make room for next years NEW junk! So buried in the far corner of the shed was a beat up worn out Ross Polo Bike. So I decided it was time to build my grandson a banana sat bike, like Pepe's. So here's what the first hour brought.......Not gonna be painted, just cleaned up. Just gotta change the crank and pedals out, new chain, banana seat and sissy bar, then see what it looks like...........Oh yeah!..Also SOLD three bikes today!

    Gotta make inside room for spilt wood, so no trips in the bathrobe out to the wood pile in the snow.

    Cool little bike..

    Cool frame. I like the bend on the top tube, the 'straight' downtube and the funky looking dropouts.

    Gonna watch this one.

    Just gott a clean the frame. Put a smaller sprocket on, easier for him to pedal. Bent the fork, just slightly, hardly noticeable....WHEW!.....I don't know where I get the energy to do these "complex" builds!
