Hi compliments nice job, I did the same thing with the barracudas I bought two 'Tias' for myself and my wife just in case the Sun comes out. I bought two donor bikes for 99 pounds each that had the wheels, stumey archers and lots of other bits, I bought the BMX style stems and bars very cheaply off ebay, I love the pierced bars. The bikes are really light and I think look amazing, the Barracudas are a very nice designed frame. The forks are Old school chrome MTBs everything NOS.

Schwable marathons on the rears and fat big apples on the fronts

My wife wants to keep the full mudguards, I'm looking for some shorties for mine

I have lots of photo but I cant upload until I have 5 posts

Anyone know the rear tyre clearance size? If I go the cheap ebay route I want to get some Fat Franks in there and they're 2.35 ballooners.
