    Stretching a Frame - But HOW MUCH do I stretch?

    Seems like every garage and tag sale in the region has an Orange County from Schwinn, but when I came upon a Huffy WEST COAST Choppers special, in red instead of chrome, complete with the chain guard and dummy tank, I had to have it. Even still has all the decals on the tank and guard, which I'm...

    Cannibal on a budget

    I'm smitten by the Nirve Cannibal/Switchblade bikes but can't afford to be bitten by the price. I'm not keen to lay out several hundred dollars for a new bicycle and then start cutting on it. After much searching, I found this. Probably made on the same production line as the Nirve bikes...

    Rat & Chopper Trikes

    so I'm trying to draw some inspiration for a rat/chopper style trike. My wife just got a brand-spankin new Scwinn Meridian, but buying new isn't quite my style. This'll be my first ever build as well, so I'm looking to draw some inspiration / tips from other dudes who've done it already. Cheers...
