A relative came to me and asked me to build him a swing bike. Without hesitation I said YES! For a few weeks I was having trouble trying to find a frame until i was able to pick one off of craigslist. THe frame wasnt what I was looking for but it did have a head tube perfect for cutting. :D

after i cut the head tube off it looked like this

It kinda reminded me of helper from the venture brothers.

I decided to buy a whole other new bike to chop up also.

I took it for a ride and it was felt strange riding it since I've never rode a swing bike. After the quick ride I tore it down and now I just need a little bit more prep work on the frame and priming the fork.

I love when he was the 'drummer' for Shallow Gravey!!!
"Turn him off!"
