A few pics of my current downtown runner. I had it in the mbbo some years ago as a long tube chopper. Dog lookin at it like some do...

1" sprung sissy. On its second springer up front. Wirth a bounce I can scrape.

Kick stand works in some places, but it'll pedal stand just about anywhere...

For spots where I might want to spark up a bit at night. A little flint...

And a little security without a chain. For the quick stop at the Bodega for a Beverage.

Was not a fan till I tried. It's challenging in a fun unique way.

My pedal/sprocket dragger. The long wheelbase causes the sprocket to scrape over bumps as well. Used it to chase bikes on flats. Not enough torque with 140mm arms to climb hills unfortunately.

Riding through deep puddles is a drag. I'd make another dragger... I like them.
I couldn't imagine climbing hills with that regardless of gearing. Nothing more than gentle slopes. It is nice, though, diggers are the best looking choppers.

Dude, the flint is genius. But I wanna attatch it to the heel of my shoe, though.
