Inspiration for this build. As kids my friends and I all wanted chopper bikes with extended forks. Total lack of funds led to the process shown above. We would cut the legs off an old fork and jamb them over existing bike forks. We had no access or knowledge about welding so we would use big wood screws jammed into the gap to hold the extensions on during wheelies! These are at least welded... :)

I like those bars.
Thanks. I was wondering about them and the grips. I was worried they are too BMX ish.
My option would of been another BMX type bar with a crossbar. Probably painted maybe remove the crossbar. Want to add a bell but the grips interfere. But they are pink. Maybe add the bell to the stem?

Thank you for the nice comments guys. This one was kinda begging to be built. So many polished builds here, but this was fun to build! Thank you Crash and Rat Rod for the opportunity!
