I built this frame years ago using a 2000’s reproduction SWINGBIKE rear triangle. It was used as decoration on my wall for the past few years. I decided to finally build it up. I just ordered a bunch of parts. Hopefully it will be complete by the deadline!

Good to see you on here. Not many of us from Utah!
It’s been a few years. I wondered if you would still be here. This is the last one of my last batch of 10 frames. I was planning v on just keeping it as wall art but a couple years ago I sold my real swing bike frame. I just happened to pop in here and saw there was a build off so I decided to build this up and have a clean bike.

@bikebuilder I have been on the site off and on. This is the first main build off I’ve done in a long time. Your swing bikes are awesome! Are you still making frames?
Thanks Kram. I’m going to look for your build right now!! They are always so clean! I am not making frames right now. I finally have good tools and welders etc but it just isn’t worth the time it takes to do it.

I don’t know now…. I just noticed my forks are bent… the way they are bent won’t really affect anything but they will look bent. I started to scuff the paint up trying to straighten them.

I’m also now considering doing dual 20” wheels or maybe reuse this old chopper for I made years ago…

Found my crank was very bent so I drove around looking for yard sales. I ran across a house for sale that had a crusty 10 speed bike. It still has the box protectors on the front axle…Maybe a case of purchased new and immediately left for 40 years? I called and they said I could have it! New crank! I had to add some spacers to get the chain and chain ring to clear the frame and tire.

I put the pedals on just to ride it but I have some new pedals on the way.
