Pedals showed up! I have some green glitter Schwinn grips that will get me by until my lime green grips show up but they may come after the deadline.

I was going to say standard fork, green one, but maybe you have already made your decision? If you relocated the rear end and stretched the whole bike, then I would say chopper fork. That slick is, well, slick!

The banana seat looks great on there. This is coming together!

Thanks. The rear end has not yet been moved. I still may move it in the future. Where the seat is makes the front end very light. The long fork may be helping to hold it down. Extending the rear wheel back would definitely help but with the amount of time I have available this is likely the stance it will take for now. I would also like to replace the rear hub with a 5 speed at some point.

Thanks Mr. Monkeyarms. The rear tire is innova brand 20x3” slick. I bought it from bmx guru but there are a number of places that sell them. You just have to know what it is. There is also a whitewall version the same size that is available.

Here is a video of the truck just for you! You have to watch this one twice. First time watch the guy and a

second time one to watch the headlights behind us.

You can also see more on YouTube under turbos bring joy or Wulfenstein’s monster ride along.

That Schwinn is serious. You need to take a side on picture so we can see how dramatic that frame and fork really look. I bet it looks like a swing bridge

Due to time I am leaving the rear wheel in the factory position for now. Someday it will hopefully be longer.

If I remember correctly I paid something like $60 for a parts bike just so I could have this headlight and a bell.
