Not really, just the documentation for the challenge, otherwise I would not bother to doucment what I did, I'd just take a couple snaps of it when it was done and move onto the next thing. It rides really nice, once you get it going it is SOLID, cruises so good. Have not done any beast climbs with it yet but I will, it will get dirty and scratched up like all my bikes do. Stay rad!

That thing is awesome! I gotta get used to the square headtube. I hope you win fair and square :grin:

What kind of steel is this? (sorry I did not read the whole story of the build)

"Edit:" I love the square handlebars with its socks.... eh grips! Again: cool bike to look at!

Thanks! Frame his mild steel like your Schwinn cruiser. Head tube insert is 4130. Grips are old school from the 1970's

can't really compete with this. Should be the winner just based on the fact it's a scratch build. Well done.

You managed to fit a square tube in a 'round hole'. And did it with style. Kudos! :thumbsup:
