Only a 36" bunny hop? Come on step up your game. Lol
But on a serious note On my BMX bike I can bunny hop from flat ground up to a picnic bench top. I'm going to say just over 30"

That is looking nice!

Thank you. I saw only 4 new posts in this forum in 24 hrs and I thought.. Ok it's time to show up! I still want to mount a rear light and turn the Mickey's bottle into a battery pack. But the Bike is basically done. If the weather man is correct today it's only in the 10's but by Thursday it will be 50! Woohoo I'll be ridin'!

As much as I love that bar wrap, those cruiser bars just ain't gettin' it. Picked up a 63 Schwinn Typhoon that had some little mustache bars... Woohoo! Just what I wanted, just ordered some white cokebottles from Ian to finish it off. Still need to fab a tail light, and this bike is crying for me to ride it and the weather just isn't cooperating. Still, the little stache' bars make me happy.

You may have already covered this but is it a single speed or geared? I see the tensioner but no cables to change gears and it appears to only be one gear

Not so much as to make up for the vertical dropouts, there's no adjustment for chain tension with vertical dropouts. So we use a tensioner. I could maybe trim the chain down to pretty close and then use elliptical axles, but that's pricey and I've never done that either... So even tho they say a tensioner won't work with a coaster brake mine does, but I probably will be taking the spring out anyway and setting it static, with no springiness, just to be safe.
