Since I can't make a thread, I'll post this here.
this isn't the bike I'll be building. I'm not allowed to. But it is the story behind it. This was the first rat I built. Didn't know it at the time, all I wanted was an old customized thing. So I stole my wife's brother's bike from when he was a kid. It is an old AllPro canti. Was metallic red, faded to a super cool tone, almost like coppertone. Threw some BMX rubber and a BMX seat on and started rolling. The setup lasted less than an hour. My weight was too much for the seatpost, became a stuck layback and I was in trouble for wrecking a family heirloom that nobody wanted. She took it, painted it, bought a seat and sissy, and now it's art. I'll be making a new attempt, but since this way didn't work, I'm reversing. Instead of turning a muscle into a BMX, I'll be turning a BMX into muscle
