    Thanks a lot :D The length from the seat to the BB is 3.5 to 4 feet, this first one was a prototype for my girlfriend who is a bit on the short side :P so I had to move the seat up a bit, scored me some brownie points though because she rides it EVERYWHERE!

    Glad you like it, I've since put brakes on the front, it has a coaster hub on the rear, changed a few other things as well. Will post pics as soon as able. :D

    Schoolproject: building a cruiserbike

    A good old school way to bend precise is to cut out the arch with some 2x12 and anchor it down, then use the arch of the wood to curve the steel. Did it for years that way until I invested in a H.F. roller. works pretty good, should work perfect given the fact you've filled the tube. Good luck...

    Re: 1948 Schwinn "Project Motorbike" This bike is SIIIIICK! love the lines, that extra few inches makes her look just stellar. Monarch springer tops it off. Definitely my favorite looking bike seen on the forum for a while. :D

    For now its all line of sight, I plan to get a jig made up here soon, but for this one I just tacked and then made sure she was straight before continuing. It takes a little more time making sure you're in alignment but if you are careful you can pull it off.

    UnDerzon3- I thought so too. I love the Franks and they ride sooo nice! Just keep after that welding teacher, mine was awesome in school. We had a sick metals shop and he taught me a lot. So its glad to see that schools still offer metals, because honestly I'd be lost today without it :D. I love...

    The Deuce

    Thanks guys! @tcpete- love the Bruiser build, that's the nickname everyone gave my board track racer build where I live, so to see someone else on a "bruiser" makes my heart happy :D. @Mugen_Stumpo- Your Rusty Cruiser is SICK! The patina on that thing would make most original 30's cars jealous...
