Got the build on the way today. Donor Frame is a 2008 Gary Fisher HiFi fully, got brakes and right shifter installed (already had fork, stem and handlebar, seatpost ect. installed) So pics will come soon.

Just google search "mini velo" and you will see some of the nicest and most expensive bikes ever with 20" wheels. They are big stuff in Japan:

Small update, got the front wheel build. Had to cut and tread all spokes since I had trouble finding the right size in Black.
